To continue with updating....
Ya'll know I love to do PaintMeJudy's mystery train rides. Here's #7 in the series.
I decided to make 2 of #8. One is for our newest Grandson due at Easter, the other is being donated to the guild.

Here's some close ups of the quilting on 54-40 or Fight.
It took me almost 19 hours to quilt this, but it was a lot of fun doing it!

Well, I've made myself a note to update the blog more often. So, here's the next in line.

Having been a truck driver for 20 years, the one organization I truly support is the Owner/Operator Independent Driver's Association (OOIDA for short). They have a truck that tours the USA, driven by a good friend of mine, Jon Osburn.
I made this quilt for it for when it's in truck shows.
It's called "54-40 or Fight".

It's time to do a much overdue update!
This is the Bonnie Hunter winter mystery "Grand Illusion". She loves scrappy, but I did it more of a controlled scrappy.
Tops done, but not quilted.

Then there's the truly scrappy Log Cabin. It's king sized to fit our new bed. Floyd wanted it extra warm, so he went shopping on Ebay & got us wool Army blankets for the batting. Boy is this heavy!
More to come!

Boy have I not kept this up!
To update from last year, here's some things I made for a dear friend in Canada. JoJo is the head of Trucking for a Cure raising money for the Breast Cancer foundation in Canada. Here's her truck.
I'd told her I'd make some things for it to dress it up for shows. Here's the quilt.
I made these covers to go over her seats.
And a couple of pillow cases to go with the quilt.
I also donated this wallhanging for her raffle. It's called "Forever in our hearts".
May 2015 bring lots of awards & she raise lots of money for a worthy cause!

the last part...........
Here's Black Tie Affair. It took 2nd after the round robin, Bird in a cage.
Then there's my 2 Challenge Blocks. Third on the Hexie one, Honorable Mention on the leaves.

I had a great show!

awards continue......
I got Honorable Mention on my Carpenter Star. Silly me used white thread to piece it & got points knocked off for it.
Color Blaze got Honorable Mention for the same reason as Carpenter Star! Sure taught me a lesson! I really didn't expect anything on this one!
