More Fall Good Quilt News

 Our NC State Garden Club members are proud to put a Free Library on the trails. It is not exclusive to garden books, but to all kind. Take a book, return a book.
 Never under estimate group critiques. I had made a night mountain scene but something was not right. Showed it to my "Cover Lovers" group and Ann's comment was, take out the light mountain. Not any fun to unpick, but that did the trick along with some great batik and wild borders. Just one of my Houston classes.
 This is the before rendition, with the after above. This is designed and made with the equilateral Grid Grip and one of the two mountain designs in the Landscape class.
 The Teapot quilt made as a group quilt won a blue ribbon at the Asheville Quilt Show and sure made the Sparta group and myself proud. Made for the Teapot Museum it is still waiting for just the right home. I designed this for the group several years ago and it was long arm machine quilted by Dixie Stoltz with steam accents by yours truly.
Our Quilt Trails is growing with the addition of the Humane Society kitties and puppies block right on highway 225 in Hendersonville, NC.

Fall, 2015

 What a class! They proudly display their Nine Quarter Circle Ranch trophies. One in all polka dot was a winner. Then, for Kelly, I covered a deer head (named Bucky Deer Bust) completely in floral print. Check out:  www.cardboardsafari.com     I used Mod Podge--just took patience and time, like all great projects.

Wendy is full of joy as she shows off her accumulation of Ranch projects in one wonderful quilt. Her trophy is going in the lower empty panel on the right side. Congrats, Wendy, a great memory quilt.

 Downtown Bozeman is always full of surprises. This time all the electrical or whatever they are called, have become bedecked with vibrant wrapped designs. One more exciting than the next, especially with Charlotte standing next to the bronco.
