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!

to be continued......................

I know, I've not kept up with the blog, but I've been getting ready for the annual quilt show. The results are in!  7 entries....8 ribbons!  Hurray!
This one is a wallhanging that was the round robin. Deb Cavanaugh did the quilting & Judy Lee did the embellishing. We took 1st place in class & Merit Honors on the quilting.
This is Rose Log Cabin. Pattern is from Deloa Jones. I had proposed this one to be the raffle quilt for 2015 to the guild, but they chose a Civil War one instead. Oh well! It now has a 2nd place ribbon on it!

Continued in next post......

I guess it's time to catch up on the blog.
A very dear friend of ours was diagnosed with stage 4 Breast cancer. What do quilters do? Make them a quilt!
We're meeting for lunch this next week & I'll be giving it to her.  Complete with a bag to carry it in  when she goes for treatments.
I sure hope she likes it, 'cuz I sure do!
