Practice! Practice! Practice!

Today I am practicing fills.... I used my Dogwood Beauty pattern and am now sewing madly away....
I think I can finish this and make it a min quilt to donate to the Silent Auction.

Getting Ready for Quiltfest!

So far, every year that I have lived in Florida I have missed the cutoff to submit quilts to the quilt show. This year, I actually managed to complete the paperwork on time! So I will have three quilts at Quiltfest 2018.
The first is a mini artisan appliqué quilt that I just finished. I made this after watching “Finding Dory”. I just love Hank the octopus in that animation film.

The second quilt will be the first quilt that I quilted by myself on the long arm machine. It is a kit that I purchased from The Hen House at one of the Dallas quilt shows many years ago.

The third quilt is my mom’s copy of Sue Daurio’s Lorisquarepants quilt. This is the first time that I digitized the quilt patterns for the long arm machine. I love this quilt!

This is mom’s version of Sue Daurio’s Lori Squarepants quilt... this is the first time I have designed the digitized patterns.  This is the last mom quilt in the “to do” pile!
