Milwaukee Show

I hope all is back to normal soon for those that have suffered the ravages of hurricane Irene.

Who are these for?

I saw Jim from Quilter's Rule and Milwaukee Machine Quilting Show a few weeks ago and he asked me to quilt this for Quilts of Valor.  So I quilted it with loops and stars.  QOV presents U.S. veterans with a quilt as a special thank you for serving.

Lucrecia and I went to a quilting meeting at Benny's and then she stopped here and picked up some orphan blocks to make a quilt for church.  That inspired me to play with these blocks.  This is as far as I got and I had to take them off my flannel wall.  I don't remember why.  I didn't really like them together so maybe that was why. Maybe this is a good start after all.

Dealing with my people continues to be a challenge. I don't know what they'd do without me. I am not one to act like the world would end if it weren't for me. It's  just occasionally I'd like it to stop spinning so I can get off. Things have settled down now, so I am looking forward to getting some more quilting time in. My new wheels are due to arrive this week!
