I finished another quilt for Amber last week. It was one that she has worked on for quite awhile off and on (what with the move and all). It was one that she wanted to give to Kerry. She thought he would particularly enjoy it and so chose an extra soft batt so that it would have that all important "Hug" factor. Hope he enjoys it!
Amber to the rescue. These are two pictures posted on the APQS website and taken by Dawn Cavanaugh at the show. I'm glad Amber put them on her blog so I could get them on mine. It was such fun to work on such a beautiful quilt and such a thrill to get a ribbon!! I'd say we make a pretty good team.

Well, I regret to say that I don't have any pictures of our beautiful red star quilt all finished and hanging at HMQS with a ribbon on it. It was a very exciting moment! We received a "Teacher's Choice" ribbon and boy were we pleased. Both of us tried to get our cameras there and when that failed we even borrowed a camera, but the fates were not with us, and we came away with no picture. How disappointing! However, we were not disappointed in the results of our efforts. There is nothing quite so rewarding as walking down that long isle and seeing your quilt in the distance and then realizing that it has a ribbon on it! How fun!

Months ago, I started quilting the biggest project that I have done so far in my experience. I have done larger quilts, but not anything with more designing, planning, sewing, unsewing, resewing and so forth. I told my daughter that I wanted her to design a quilt with lots of quilting space so that I could actually design and try things that I have never been able to do before because this kind of quilting is out of the norm that usually is done on customer quilts.
