Yes, I won a ribbon for being "The Most Inconsistent Blogger EVER!
But seriously, "Food Frenemies" won an Honorable Mention at the AQS Fall Paducah Quilt Show this week.
I thought it would be too silly a quilt to be considered by the judges, but I am so pleased.
Thank you for messages of concern. I am still kicking. CRAZY summer, same as all of you, with not enough quilting time.
AND I am working on a super-secret reproduction project from something dated during the 1600's. SO COOL! I am not going to reveal any of it until I have gotten past the tipping point. I think lots of you will be interested in doing it, perhaps. I am certainly obsessed with it myself.
When I did my "Baltimore Rhapsody" music blocks/quilt and let the block posts just trickle out, I was shocked that people were actually wanting patterns of the blocks. I was always feeling behind and stressed about getting blocks done in a timely fashion and getting the patterns prepared.
(Still feel like that as I try to finish the saxophones and folk instruments...sigh.)
That is how I backed into selling my patterns. That project appealed to a certain niche of musician and musician-lovers.
This time, I want to be past a certain point before I reveal so that I can get out in front of all you speedsters who might be interested in it, as well.
THIS IS GOING TO BE SUCH A COOL, UNIQUE PROJECT!
I have been drawing blocks for 2-3 months now. Now I am beginning to choose fabrics and construct each block. So much fun...I wish sleep wasn't necessary.
I have LOTS of photos from the Fall Paducah Show to share with you, starting Monday. I should have all the pictures loaded on my computer by then. Plus, I am going to a small, sort-of-local show this morning where I will take pictures. They only have a show every other year, but that guild has some GREAT appliquers!
Thanks for stopping by my blog and checking in on me. I will try harder to be "home" when you do!
