I do still quilt.
As a matter of fact, this is the second top, well I made busy blocks that I hated (donated to a friend who will make it into a charity top) with the Cat in the Hat fabric.
I have minkie for the backing. This will be a gift for one of Jacob's day care ladies, who is going to have a baby in August.

This looks funnier than it was - the toddler would not listen & so he had to get "got."
Yes there were some of these guy too - who are suprisingly hard to photograph!
I have a house quilt hiding in me - mine will have cats in the windows & doors. (Any one suprised?)
This is like one of my UFO's, only mine will be bedsized. (At this show I bought 4 more shirting prints - I can't help myself.)
Some of the hands were appliqued down, others were not... The light binding I find intriguing too.
I can not fathom making half square triangles that small...

I dashed up really quick to take a couple shots. We had to dash back before our 2 hour parking was up & we saw an Ice Cream shoppe that needed to be visited before we left.
They had my favorite flavor - cinnamon!
It looks nicer on the Quarter - without the scaffolding., a photo by aviva_hadas on Flickr.
I always questioned the use of the Cupola on the Maryland State Quarter (I thought Ft. McHenry would have been better) but they did not ask me.
Anyway after the quilt show, the boys & I went into Historic Annapolis & we plan on returning.

Once upon a time ago, i was totally smitten with Koi - fabric in particular. I finished 1 Koi quilt, have one Koi UFO & I might have a Koi pile-o-fabric.
Mind you the one that is completed is a Faux log cabin, the UFO will probably be a spider web, & the pile-o-fabric was supposed to be a scrappy rectangles quilt.
Nothing near as artistic or complicated as this lovely piece.

1. I am loving how this is coming along.
2. I am not nearly as displeased with the blocks that have 2 prints as I originally thought. Mostly because when a skinny print from block A is next to a fat print in block B, they will look like a block with 2 prints.
3. I have about 20 more blocks to piece.
4. I am definitely piecing them with white. :o)

This was part of a challenge... (Something DC centric, but I can't recall exactly what...) This one was in my top favorites. (I only wish that she added the "planned" purple line... Maybe as very very light lavender...)
Do you see the waves print. In the pattern that I have seen for this (In an old Scrap Quilts book) all of the units made that design. I like seeing this scrappier version too. The one in the book (according to my faulty recollection) was done in 30's repros.
