/1/2 strips of fabrics and some smaller making a large wonky log cabin surrounded by dresden plates...that still need the center cicle sewn on - will be sending off to be quilted soon - all the scraps were from Ellen Carter who tossed them in front of me about one year ago stating she had used all of them she wanted...Carmen Vasquez took the light fabrics and I took the mediums/darks...hey it is a free quilt!!

Batik Crazy Quilt started 2/12 - while the Crazy at Night Bee is working on the donation of this quilt for the silent auction, I decided I have to also make my own...these are the 12 center blocks - not embellished yet...just some trim sewn on with threads I am trying to use up but it is going to be wonderful!!

Went to the Colorado Valley Quilt Show in LaGrange today to meet the program chair and see the very nice quilt show - even managed to spend money imagine that...thrift store shopping too for vintage earrings...to wear or put on a quilt??? tough decision. Then forced myself to stop at the beautiful quilt store in downtown Bastrop....had to make a purchase there - spreading the wealth as they say.
