What an awesome quilt.  I know you can do the quilting...it really isn't so bad once you get started.

Bonita:
Agnes, your mug rugs are really pretty. What are you going to do with 4 dozen?

Thank you, Bonita. I will probably keep a few to have on hand for a few gifts. I make small items for the Cancer Care gift nook in the clinic where DH received chemo for his pancreatic cancer. In 2011 I used an assortment of designs and donated about 50 mug rugs plus a few runners.. The runners were a much harder sell. The mug rugs never were there for any length of time. In 2012 -13 I donated over 100 knit dishcloths. I have decided my knitting days are over. Too harmful for my right hand. The original plan was to make a quilt top with these floral fabrics for another charity, also related to cancer patients, but that charity chapter folded and I didn't want to struggle with having to quilt it myself so these became Plan B.

Leaving early tomorrow a.m. for the two-hour drive up to beautiful Duluth, MN, on the shores of Lake Superior for the 35th Annual Minnesota Quilt Show.  I'm only going to the exhibits and vendors this year - no classes.  Going with some other gals from our local guild.  Oops, better go plug in my camera battery right now!

Have a good time Nancy and take lots of pictures.  There's a Quilt Expo scheduled for Reno in July I think, and I really plan on attending this year.

Patti, your crane is beautiful!  Remind us - did you make up this design yourself?

I better give credit to the person who made the sandhill crane pattern.  I was just googling "sandhill crane eye photo", and there was the quilt I just posted a picture of yesterday!  Without the eye, but because I mentioned it not having eyes yet, there it was!

It is from the book Wild Birds, designs for applique & quilting, by Carol Armstrong.  She also has a wonderful book on wild flowers.  What I really like about her is she makes designs to show off natural, real looking birds and flowers.  The meadow lark, cedar wax wing, blue jay, grosbeak, etc all look like the real bird.  She takes the most important distinguishing features of the birds, flowers and puts them in the design.

My sandhill crane is slightly altered from her pattern.  Head slightly different, an extra feather in the body when I thought more grey would look better.  The back ground is mine.  She does magnificent beautiful work.

Agnes:
Debbie--Each is 9" across, determined by the FQ width of 18".

WOW!  that's a big mug rug!  but would be easier to work with than the 4-5" size.  I like them, especially all the florals.

Carol from Pittsburgh:

I am so tempted with the BOMs that I see online but they are very expensive!  Anyone know of any that aren't too high? Any sales? I'd like to stay under $150- or is that impossible?  I haven't done any quilting in over a week and I'm really missing it, seeing so many great quilts posted here. I've been knitting a pink afghan for my granddaughter who will arrive in September. When that's done I'll start on a quilt for her.

There are several that are going on in groups.   You have to pick your own fabrics,but we work together on the patterns and give helpful tips as we go along.

the appliqué group is in the middle of two quilt right now and we may be starting another in the fall.  Help me out ladies, which group  are the pieced blocks in?  It started quite a while ago, but you can jump into these whenever you want.

I swear, I get more spacey every hour.    The blocks of the month would be in, go figure, the block of the month group.  I'm sorry melody, that I couldn't remember that.   Anyhow,  go to groups and check out the block of the month group.

I have 3 quilts that I plan to get ready for quilting today, then when my machine comes home from the sewing machine hospital, I'll be ready to go. I hope by the time retreat is over t hat I'll have 2 more quilt tops finished and the blocks for 2 more quilts at least started.. But with all the visiting and getting to know everyone at retreat I doubt that I'll get that much done.

Yesterday I finished a crazy log cabin pillow made. It's for my Grandson Joshua's birthday. I'm also going to make him a pillowcase but I had to order more fabric.

Last evening I started making some wallets that a friend wants to sell at s craft fair for me. I made  a bunch of mug rugs too. I have no idea what type of pricing to put on any of this stuff. Can anyone help?
