Not only did I work on a quilt today, but I finished one.  I was SO glad to see that last little bit of binding done.  Here is a pic of my Harry Potter's Project of Doom quilt. DH was really nice this evening and helped me get it hung up so I could get a photo.  I guess he will get an extra cup of pudding for dessert tomorrow.

Back to the sewing room...I have a modern lap quilt I'm working on now, and the Alzheimer's research project I donate my lap quilts to has requested some red/white/blue patriotic themed quilts for a special project they are starting.  I have a design I've been wanting to try that should fit with the r/w/b, so I'd better get to work.   Ya'll have a quilty day!   Max

 

Max, this is awesome!  You are a master quilter!  Did you say who you were making this for?  Can we pass it around to enjoy it for a month?  I'll be the December month, if so.  : )

 

 

Max, Awesome, spectacular, extraordinary, ok I'm too tired today to think of any more words to describe the wonderful job you did on this quilt.   Bet you are ready for something simple and easy now. You are fantastic! The best!! You deserve a quilty rest. Hugs.

Hey Max,

When I first saw this I was speechless or should I say thoughtless because that is amazing!!

I don't think I have worked on a quilt all week.  Been too busy getting ready for a quilt show for tomorrow!  We got all the quilts displayed today and I sure am tired.  We ended up with 92 items for our show.  I hope we have lots to come see them tomorrow.

One of the quilts we have for the show is just awesome! It was made in 1855 and is made of over ten thousand 3/4" hexagons.  Wow!  I am just amazed everytime I look at it.

Carol, I would love to see a picture of this quilt.  It sounds like an amazing woman or group did this quilt.

Carol, do you suppose that fabric we use today will hold up longer then this one from 1855? I often think about that. Surely, the fabric we use today is sturdier then that of the old fabrics. Or, is it the dyes that cause the fabric to deteriate?

I have wondered about that too.  Some of the fabrics look pretty good but then there are some that are completely gone.  What will our quilts look like in 150 years??  Makes one think doesn't it?

I worked on the Craftsy BOM for October.... paper piecing....my first attempt.  This was difficult for me and it is not perfect, but I dont think it is too bad for a first attempt.
