I'm a Finalist

I saw on Facebook this morning that I am a top 10 finalist for the Quilting Category on The Craftys. They will be picking the winners in each category on the 6th of November. I am so excited that I made it that far considering that I entered on the last day because I didn't know about them until I saw a post on Facebook. I'm already thinking about what I can do for next year. If you haven't checked them out you should give them a look if you are interested. The link is The Craftys .

The Craftsys

I wasn't aware this was going on. Did you know about it? So I went to see what it was and I entered this quilt in the quilting category. You can find it here. There are lots of categories to look at and you have until midnight on Oct 25 to upload an entry.

You can vote for your favorites in many categories so if you like my quilt I would appreciate your vote. How is that for shameless soliciting?

Not much happening quilting wise here at the moment. I have been working on the illusion block quilt. You can see a tutorial on it over at Missouri Star Quilt Company if you would like to make one.

Hope you have something to share I would love to see what you have been up to lately.

Summer is Almost Over

Hard to believe that summer is almost over. Joann's is celebrating and giving gift cards away. Check out their promotion at the link below. They are launching something called Buttercream.

I finished and donated this quilt for Crop Walk to raffle off.
Above is the link you can use to check out Crop Walk if you are interested.
For the last 4 years I have been an Accuquilt Dealer so I have been making demo quilts to show off the dies some of which I have posted here from time to time. Recently, I have been making the pattern that comes with the Cat & Bat Die.
I added the Owl and made the bats purple at the request of a couple of friends. Now to get it quilted. It makes up much larger than I thought it would from the picture on the pattern.  What do you think so far?
