Random Thought #1:My river project is on the frame...I'm determined to meet my October goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes. Plus, it has to be ready to hang in our guild show on November 1st!
I'm stitching down the applique as part of the quilting.
|Don't worry about the ripples by the head...things only look that way because the quilt is rolled onto the take-up bar.|
Random Thought #2:It's challenging to quilt someone else's art! We discussed the owner's vision and I tried to execute it faithfully, BUT I've been nervous the whole way through! EEK!
I won't show the whole quilt until it's hung in our show, but here's the bottom corner...hoodoos done in stitch!

Random Thought #3:Went to the High Prairie quilt show on Sunday (when I should have been quilting - ha!) and won a prize! Won't know what it is until I go back to pick it up. As you can see, there are a few possibilities!!!
Here are a couple of shots of the show. There were over a hundred quilts on display!
Random Thought #4:On Saturday the Fairview ladies stitched up a storm making blocks for their Harmony quilts. So many fun fabric choices! The blocks will really pop once the 3-D edges are revealed.
Random Thought #5:Some of the quilts that caught my eye in High Prairie...
