I feel honored to have one of my quilting efforts chosen as “Quilt of the Week” on Machine Quilter’s Resource, a forum devoted to professional machine quilting. This Egyptian Quilt, pieced and owned by my friend, Barb Kiehn, is the quilt being highlighted:
The class I taught yesterday went well. I had a wonderful bunch of students- friends, really. I find I really enjoy teaching. The atmosphere at the quilt store is very warm, hilarious, and fun. All this, plus fabric, too!
“In the Garden,” the formal name of the quilt I am currently working on, is getting closer to being completed. I will be quilting every spare minute until it is done. It is due to be in a show in early February. Cutting it close, I know. Anyway, here are some updated pics:
and one more view:
I can’t wait to finish this enough for the show next week. Once I get it back, I will reload this quilt and change a few places, also add some more work. I still have lots of SID to do … Yikes!
Anyhow, I’m hoping my extra effort on the quilting pays off. Either way, I’ll let you know how it does in the local show.
Last note: My favorite kitty, Oscar, is recuperating after a mystery injury. I took him to the Vet since he was limping, and acting like he was in pain. Good news: xrays revealed no broken bones, so it is some sort of muscle or tendon injury. The Vet kindly gave him a 24 hour pain shot and extra pain pills so he doesn’t suffer while healing. Poor baby!
Here is Oscar in happier moments:
