Of This and Of That

Good Sunday to you all   ...  it's a lovely day, the sun is shining, and the kitties are napping in the sunshiny spot. 
Lots of sewing and quilting going on here... 

This top is underway for Sarah's "Hands to Help" initiative... I made these sixteen patches a year ago, for no purpose, and then 'surprise', she was saying 'make 16 patches'  , so I knew then what they were supposed to be............... 

Border?  yes
What kind?  I don't know yet..............

gee I think that needs a little ironing....... it's been squished up on a shelf for a bit. 

OH OH OH - EXCITEMENT.................

my linen quilt, "Sonoma Sunday", won a Judges' Choice ribbon at the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival !!!  The judge was Anita Hergert - THANK YOU, ANITA...  I can't wait til the quilt comes home with its ribbon - will take a photo and share with you then.

And, the 'new' linen quilt is so much fun...  it is starting to show a little shape:  here are some in-progress pics

 interesting perspective on this shot - taken hanging off the edge of the table - not a recommended photo technique !



And, although it's a little premature, I have been thinking about a name.  I think it will be something about Bodega Bay...  a little California town I love dearly, and it's rather a secret reference, since there are birds on this linen, and Bodega Bay is famous because Hitchcock filmed "The Birds" on location there.  

Well, Sunday afternoon - the cherished time before one has to turn the thoughts toward another work week.  I do hope you have found something lovely to sew on this weekend !

Happy Quilting,

Kate

Congratulations, Kathleen! To me, a Judge's Choice ribbon is extra special. I know I take a lot of time deciding on mine when I am judging. You continue to amaze me with the amount and variety of quilting you do. You rock!

Hi Kathleen, Congratulations on your ribbon. I notice that your quilt number was the next one after mone. My quilt box arrived home empty...only packing materials. I'm really hoping it ended up in the wrong box and so desperately trying anything I can think of. I know it is unlikely it is with yours since yours would have gone into New Jersey for that show. However, I'm sure you can empathize with how devastated I am at the moment....and trying any idea. It is called "Dead Palm Fronds"
