Pat Lancaster:

I finished the quilt for DS and DDIL.

Pat, your quilt is beautiful!  Thanks for supplying the pattern name.   Did you buy a kit or purchase Hoffman fabrics of your own choosing?

Bonita, it is my favorite, too, although it was a lot more work than the small ones.

I sent them to a craft fair at the Middle School with my oldest grandson.  None of them sold, so the poor kid didn't make any money, but there were more sellers than buyers and most were in the 13-15 year old range. One lady did order 2 in a Halloween print for grandchildren, said they would make good trick or treat bags from grandma.  Glad I have some Halloween fabric in my stash left from when I made trick or treat bags for the grandsons, and at least I won't have to buy anything.

I really just needed a bunch of smaller projects so I could feel like I accomplished something, but our little town has several craft fairs in November at the various schools and the senior center so I'll probably take them there, along with others I have made through the years.  My DGS wants to sell the survivor bracelets he makes, so I'll get the table and let him sell...since they won't let a 14-year old have the space by himself.

I really like the ones you made, Bonita.  They're a lot of fun to make, aren't they?

I LOVE my featherweight.  This quilt is completely piece on the featherweight since we made in in class.  One women inn class said her featherweight did not like aurifil but miner is fine with it.  did have to play with the tension but now its fine.

Wow, I'm glad I'm signed up for that retreat!  I think navy and red would coordinate with my wardrobe.

Gini, are you back home now?

Oh yes, I'm working on quilts. I'm just churning them out at a fairly decent pace. They're one block, no piecing, and all of 9" across. Here's one, only the tip of the iceberg.

Karla--You're totes are all lovely.

Thank you Nancy, and everyone else who liked my quilt. As I said I hated to give it away. It was in American Patchwork and Quilting, April 2009.  By the time I decided to do it there were no kits available. I started hunting on line and found a store in Tampa, about 50 miles away, that still had the line. I went up there and got most of the fabric. I had to substitute some because they didn't have everything. I ended up not using any of the substitutes. Last year when I finally had the nerve to cut that gorgeous, expensive fabric I was able to determine exactly what I needed. I spent quite a while in a local shop and found one piece that worked quite well. The last fabric needed was found online in a Canadian quilt shop. I called them and asked the lady to actually look at the fabric because I couldn't tell if it was green or blue. She sent me the fabric and I only ended up with one non-Hoffman fabric. It was a great pattern and fantastic fabric. I think it is probably the best work I have done at this point in time.

Pat, your quilt is really lovely. It is hard to give away something you work so hard on and that turns out so well.
