Greetings Everyone!

I found this great site and they are giving away the board game Quilt-opoly! This would be so cool to win and I hope I am the lucky one. In the Fall, the Crazy Ladies (you know who you are) will be heading to my home in DE for a weekend retreat of quilting fun!

We always have a wonderful time together and this game would only add to the fun!

Susie is Retired - Lucky for her!

Greetings Everyone!

My friend, Susie, is retiring after 30 years of teaching! Her retirement party was this past Saturday and oh what a party it was.

Susie LOVES the moon and everything about the Moon. In honor of her retirement I made her a Moon Goddess Quilt. The thirty stars represent her 30 years of teaching. The Moon Goddess in the middle of the quilt is Susie. The four other Moon Goddesses represent phases of her life ( I say they are her during her two marriages and her raising her two sons) The Blue and Gold represent the colors of her own (and mine too) High school as well as the schools where she taught.

I got the idea from this site.

Happy Retirement, Susie!

OK ...I've been busy but I didn't leave!

Greetings Everyone!

I can't believe it has been almost 1 month since my last post. I've been busy as a bee. Working and stuff plus that Man O'Mine and I have both been sick.

I did get the Jeans quilt done and it has been quilted too! I used a black fabric with white stars for the backing. I sent it to a long arm quilter from my guild. She did a large meander all over. Looks nice. Now I am going to sew the binding on (not my favorite thing to do).

I found a cool video posted by Judy Laquidara. You can find it here. I'm trying it out on the Jeans quilt.
