I can finally show you my McCalls Challenge #2...if you didn't stop by earlier in the week.
Voting is daily through Sept. 8 --yes, that means you can vote every day for your favorite quilt!! I'm in Alaska the last week of this challenge on a cruise with my extended family, so I'll need your support as I don't know if we'll have internet access or not. Click on the link in the box to the right with the image of the quilt.

Also in progress is technically a customer quilt, but I'm really having fun with not quilting too much (i.e. keeping it simple....but still stunning!) Here is a sneak peek...

This week I've had a 13 y.o. at my home working on her 1st quilt. So proud of her! We'll be quilting it today. She doesn't want anyone to see in-progress until it is finished. 

EQ7 2011 BOM- See Monday's Design Wall for an update.
Lonestar wall hanging - want to do borders on two sides and embroidery work - plan to get some done this weekend while in Seattle/Tacoma for the Pacific West Quilt Show.

Oddie's Wild Nature - target July...most likely August if at all now.
One-fabric re-pieced table cloth - target October (p.s. picked up a very thin batting at AQS Knoxville to try with this) --am wondering if this is ready to quilt. Need to get it out and look at it.
