Quilt Show

The annual show held by the National Quilting Association allows 400 quilters to send in their quilts without being "juried" by a panel of judges so yours truly decided to send in a wall hanging this year. The show is held in Columbus, Ohio which is only an hour from my home and so DD, DH and I spent the day at the show and here I stand, "Entrant" ribbon on my shirt, trying to look dignified.  However, when other quilters saw my DD taking my photo and they started taking my photo too, then I started to grin like an idiot. 

The little quilt is called "Sunshine Maze" and it was made from a kit.  I love color wheel quilts and I have four of them. 

DD and I went on a shopping spree and had a good time at the NQA show.  I have already made the quilt top for next year's entry.  :-)

Fire near Ft. Collins, Colorado

There is a huge fire near Fort Collins, Colorado and it sounds like there have been some homes lost. I’ve decided to assemble some quilts to send to victims of the fire. I have a family member near Ft. Collins who will accept responsibility to get the quilts distributed.

If anyone would like to send me some blocks this is what I’d like:

12 1/2 inches UNFINISHED size blocks, 12 inches finished

Colors – Blue, green and/or brown with natural muslin as the lighter tone.
Please sign your block

Cut off date for getting blocks to me would be August 1, 2012. My personal target date to get the quilts to Colorado is mid September.

Please contact me via dolphinquilter at hotmail dot com for my address if you’d like to take part.

Thanks in advance,
