County Fair Results

Image
Well no "Best of Show" this year but I did get (3) "1st Place" Ribbons on these! So, here is: "Beauty and the Beast" Close up to show the nice straight lines! I ripped out the seams on three rows until I got it right! Quilted all up nice by my friend Irene Hensley. I used "Another Iota" by Robert Kaufman. It makes a great binding! "Sophie's Twister"Lastly, I submitted a jar of yummy "Pineapple Jam" that I forgot to take a picture of the night I dropped everything off. Thank you all for indulging me while I showed off.

I really encourage you to show your beautiful creations in your local fairs. It validates your work and makes you feel good inside. Thank you for stopping by "In The Boon Docks" Lisa

I present "The Beast" Unquilted

I have worked on this quilt for weeks and finally took it to Irene to be quilted a few hours ago. She knew it was coming and said she would have it ready tomorrow. I then have to put the binding on it by Monday at 9 pm to enter it into our county fair.

Last minute! Why do I do this to myself? Do you ever start a project get it almost done and quit? Saying I can't get it done in time. After all the work you put into it then turn around and say "oh no, I gotta get this done now"? So all I did today was sew! But not fun sewing, the frantic crazy type of sewing. It will be a mad dash to make the binding in the morning. This is our king size bed just to give you a size idea. The fabric is Quilt Blocks by Ellen Luckett Baker for Moda & Robert Kaufman Kona Solid Coal. There are 114 5" blocks.

Hope you like it! I haven't decided yet but it is going to be entered. Does anyone have a good name for it? I would love to hear your idea's nobody here likes …

Hawthorne Threads Pre-cut Sale

Image
Hi Everyone, I hope your all doing well. I have been busy shopping at Hawthorne Threads They have the latest and greatest fabric, a blog, a weekly giveaway, and terrific sales! I got everything you see here for less than $50.00. Enough to keep me busy for a little while. So, next time you are looking for a great deal head over there and look in the pre-cut sale section and clearance section. Oh, this is just my opinion, nobody sponsors me. I just like beautiful designer fabric and don't have a lot of money. I look for good bargains where I can find them and I consistently find them at Hawthorne Threads. Thought I would pass this along to my friends out in blogland. Have a good week! Later I will show you my progress on Miss Sophie's quilt. Later Lisa
