It's a Cloudy Day

I've been disappointed that only two folks have entered the drawing for the magazine, FQ's, and ornaments. I might extend the deadline to December 15th and try to get more folks to sign up. I will look to see if I have something extra special to add to the prize too. My guess is that interest is low due to a combination of a lackluster prize and low traffic on my blog!

I've been slowly working my way through the charity quilts for the quilt guild. I have five to do. I have the third one almost done.

I did hearts in the green squares and the flowers in the purple ones
I had goobers on the back of this quilt, in a few spots. I ripped them out and will re-quilt them today. I really watched my tension, but still, I have loopys on the back side every now and then. I am thinking about trying the Juki on the frame to see if the problem is with the machine or with me! lol

I am working on the final flower petals for the House Medallion quilt. The size of the cornerstone is about four inches. Those are very tiny flower petals!!! I am hand appliqueing them with silk thread.

Lady Lego has been in my studio, causing all kinds of mayhem! She was last seen to be bear wrestling.

I have had this six inch art block for a long time. It was a gift. I just hadn't found a way to use it. I have now trimmed it in black with gold lame' binding.
The quilt guild is promoting Ami Simms' Alzheimer quilt project. I had made several for the project a few years ago. I am hoping to get in touch with of the giver of the block and ask her permission to donate this finished quilt-let to that project.

That's all for today. I have a bunch of quilting to work on, as always. It is cold and cloudy outside. That makes for a good day to work inside on projects!!!

More people will see your blog postings if you feed them into FB. I feed them in to the Notes. I don't remember how I did it, though. You can also do it through FriendFeed. Get some Moo cards and hand them out to your guild friends or make some cards with your blog address on the computer.

Looks like Lady Lego is badly outclassed there. Hope it's a gentle bear!

I'm trying to enter, but not sure how to go about it. Maybe others have the same problem? (LOVE the spiral quilting!)
