Thats nice she wants to donate quilt frame , but if she wants to sell it i'm just wondering how much?
Pam, beautiful quilt, congratulations on the ribbon.
So sorry to hear of your losses. Loosing a parent is so hard and to loose both so close together has to be devastating. Prayers and hugs coming your way.
Hope you have a wonderful Sunday in Germany. I do most of my quilts by machine but I do try to handquilt one quilt a year.
Your quilt deserved a ribbon. Congratulations.
Congrats Pam. It is neat. Ginny
I love your scenic quilt, Pam! I can see why it won a blue ribbon! Congrats!

Thank you all, that's why I missed this forum so! Your kind, generous well wishes and accolades are rare on forums (even in real life) these days...I really appreciate this site for that. All here want to build up each other and care for one another, just as it should be.
I love seeing what you create and all inspire me in one way or another. You are much appreciated. Can't wait to meet you in person in Oregon in Fall!
Pam, I want to add my congratulations! I have seen some other quilts that have won blue ribbons at the Oregon State Fair so I know the competition was fierce. And, that your win was well deserved!!! That is one beautiful and well executed quilt!
I really am thunderstruck by your praise. Thanks again....my head won't fit through doorways now!
Pam that quilt is very pretty !! I love that you put a cat in there too, gives it life.
Diane, I too wish to express my sorrow at the loss of your parents so close together. I have a small inkling of what it feels like to loose loved one so close together. I lost my DH, my best friend and my Mother in a 17 month period. Prayer by and for me got me through.
Well, I have my log cabin quilt top finished and waiting to be quilted. Looking for inspiration for quilting designs (it has a LOT of open light space) I stumbled across a web site with photos of blue jean quilts. One in particular caught me eye. The stained glass jean quilt. There was a link to free stained glass denim quilt pattern and blog. I have yet to make a jean quilt for my GD so off I went to Hancock's to get hot pink for the quilt. I drafted 3 blocks that could be turned in any direction and after making one of each I found I needed a 4th block to use up the smaller strips (2 1/2" ) I had from the jeans. I also re-sized one of the blocks to incorporate pockets. So here is what I have so far....

I really like this method of making jeans quilt tops! never do you have to sew 2 pieces of denim together and your seams can be the standard 1/4 inch. Having a ball!!!!!
