|Here is a 'boys' version.|
March 1, 6am EST was the deadline for the EQ 2011 BOM Layout contest. I had spent the last two days quilting to death (a new approach for me), what I am now calling, "Spinner". About midnight I submitted it. Only the top needed to be pieced in order to submit it, but I had quilted it too. I had hoped to get the binding on before submitting it, but it was just taking too long. When I checked my email about 7:30am I had a 'Winner' email from Electric Quilt. I was so excited! I use EQ to design all my quilts and have enjoyed participating in the BOM last year, winning the Kaleidoscope add-on and now I'll get even more add-on software to have fun with. Whoo hoo--ok, I AM a software nerd!

More photo details with some closeups of the quilting and blocks at my flickr set. I'm working on a prairie point piped binding--serious effort here!
