I would love to take the credit for the table runner but it's Donna's project. She did do a wonderful job on it and I too love her colors.
I have gotten the names messed up too and had to laugh at myself a few times times. :-) LOL
Lots of you may already know of this site but thought I'd mention it. I just came across their patterns at a fabric/Viking store yesterday. Had to have this pattern. It combines embroidery and quilting. The site is http://www.lunchboxquilts.com/shop/#embroidery-applique-quilts and they certainly have some wonderful quilt/embroidery patterns. I purchased the Halloween Fun one and can't wait to get to it but it will be a little while. I'm going to purchase the Christmas one next.
thanks Ramona ,and I'm really sorry Donna, I really do like it and the colors are fabulous .Barbara
EAT!! SLEEP !! QUILT!!
Renee:Exactly where did you find the "Fabric For LIfe" contest for 2012.
This year, it's a pop-up ad on QCA, but I have to say, it is not popping up everyday. I'll bet most of us have the "pop-up blocker" turned on within our browsers. Now that I have the address, I've bookmarked it so I can find it easily each day.
On the banks of the Mississippi River in north central Minnesota (Brainerd lakes area)
I did not get an email. Hmmm.... The contest was already a month along before I got that pop-up and started entering.
So happy to see a new thread here. I haven't been on since last Monday night. I tried to post then and gave up. Couldn't even read from page to page. Just tried again today and saw #5 was locked, so was able to catch up. Because everyone wasn't trying to post, the pages worked.
Since I thought it was hopeless to read posts, I have not been on here since Monday. Gave me more time to quilt. I did have one day without having to get tires fixed, machinery parts, groceries, etc. I have finished several of the small wheelchair quilts and have 3 more ready for binding. I also got another one pinned for quilting tonight. Thursday and yesterday I was able to finish binding two more while riding in the truck all day both days. Now have 17 completely done with 10 more fast approaching the finish line. Will take pictures soon since I canpost to new threads now.
Need to go to bed. It is past my bedtime (isn't old age fun??!!). Hope to get to more quilts tomorrow. Have a fun weekend, everyone.

Marsha-SM:Since I thought it was hopeless to read posts, ...gave me more time to quilt.
I think a lot of people were in the same boat. Notice how few posts there have been today?
I finished quilting the queen-size quilt for my new bed, and this evening I cut, joined, and pressed the binding strips, so tomorrow after church maybe I can get that sewn on and be done! Pictures soon...
I worked on four UFOs in various stages of undone.
Finally finishing DD's quilt....have binding sewn to backside edges now to sit down and sew to the front! Sorry for the 'wavy' appearance- just can't seem to pin it to the board without it falling while I do it!
Glad to have the new thread- haven't heard a thing from the site for days! Was wondering what was happening.
Any of you going to be at the NW Quilt Expo Portland OR Sept. 20-22? http://www.nwquiltingexpo.com/index.html
I'd love to meet any who are attending!
Ooops forgot- they posted a nice video to entice any who are hestitant about attending...heehee
I love your projects. The pumpkins are precious.
The quilt turned out beautifully. I love this pattern.
Thanks Nana- I have done this pattern twice now and am definitely going to do it agagin- maybe in rainbow colors on black!
Pam, the colors are stunning in your quilt. If I remember correctly, your daughter is'nt a fan of green, but there is no way she won't like the beautiful ribbon edge that it makes. Ginny
