I've been back from the AQS quilt show in Lancaster Pennsylvania for a week already and am happy to say my husband survived his first quilt show! I don't know where the time goes. It's not that I haven't been busy, my Twisted Nickel quilt is now quilted and bound. This picture doesn't do justice to the fantastic quilting done by my long arm quilter, Linda of L&R Designs, so I've included two close-ups of the quilting design.
I have been working on another version of this quilt and on what to do with the leftover scraps from this project. I hope to show you what I come up with next week.
I also sewed binding on a quilt on our drive to Pennsylvania. It was one of my UFO's. I think I started it maybe 3 years ago. I know it's been quilted since before Christmas of 2009! But, it's done now and hanging on the wall hiding an ugly electrical box and cable outlets. If it looks a little crooked, it might be because it's stapled to the wall! I don't want to take time to make a sleeve and it probably won't be a wall quilt after we move anyway. The squares are stacked and sewn so the raw edges can fray. It's a very easy quilt and uses alot of fabric.
And, last but not least, I have been writing patterns for the quilts of this challenge and working on a web site for them. The site is up at http://www.doublenickelquilts.com/ and will eventually have all of the patterns for sale as downloads.
And, oh yeah, did I mention I work full-time?
