Award-winning quilts

This past weekend was the Morgan Hill Quilt Show sponsored by the Santa Clara Valley Quilt Association. They always do a nice job showcasing quilts from quilters in the Bay Area. The venue is the Community center in Morgan Hill. Our quilt show was well represented including 3 entries from me, one from April, one from Debbie, one from April's Aunt Connie and our friend Judy Keel-Smith. There are others from the shop that entered quilts as well, but I don't remember who. Anyways, I'm thrilled that two of my quilts received ribbons as did April and her Aunt! April received a 2nd place in large pieced and her Aunt received 1st! I received first and second place in large applique!

It's been a busy month!

The kids are back in school and while I was hoping to get more free time, that just hasn't happened. I'm doing the yearbook again for Sarah's school and now will be doing the wardrobe for the band for Rachael's school. Why can't I learn to say "No?" I'm also doing more at the shop which definitely keeps me busy and since that is my happy place, at least I'm relatively balanced! Ha Ha. I have managed to finish two quilt. The first "Civil War Birds" is made from my scraps and the second is the "Henrietta Whiskers" which is the finished BOM from Bunnyhill Designs. I have been working on this one as the patterns were published each month and now it's done!
