Wonderful inspirations Judy X 2

I'm thankful that "quilting" coverers a lot of teritory.  I could not even imagine doing all those little blocks, but they are truly wonderful.
Thurs. AM a quilty-GF and I are driving to Mt. Dora, Fla. and meeting up with my Quilty GF Jan and traveling to Tavares (a VERY small area) for a 3 day quilt get away.  It is at Lake Yale Baptist retreat center, and they even have some gluten free foods I can eat.  Whoo-wee!
I hope to finish up the top of the T shirt quilt I am making for a friend's daughter who is graduating from home schooling in a week.  She doesn't really need it until Sept. 1 when she goes off to college. So , have some time.  But, wanted to do this as a "practice" T shirt quilt for when my grand sons graduate from H.S.
With all the new smart tecnology I should be able to learn how to post some pictures here.
Have hired a new yard man.  DH doesn't want to do it, I don't have the time or energy, and this guy needs the work.  After the first 2 weeks, things are looking much better.  He took out tons of weeds out of the front-used-to-be-flower bed.  Now to get him to lay mulch, and it will look better.
We are in our rainy season, hard thunder storms yesterday, just light rain so far this afternoon.
Will try to forego the nap and get some things done.

Judy's Original Design Visited Ohio Years Ago

This photo gives you an excellent peek at Judy's original Y2K quilt that she finished in 1998.  She brought it along when she visited Ohio and so some Buckeyes could view it "in the cloth".  That's JudyPete on the left, Judy in Ohio (me) next to her and two other Ohio quilters make up the foursome.  This is her Y2K quilt made with 2.5 inch squares which became a queen sized quilt.

The quilt she just recreated was made with 1.25 inch squares (and 1/8th inch seams) so those squares in the previous photo are 1 inch squares.

JudyPete is my dearest friend but sometimes I roll my eyes at her projects.  LOL

Judy in Iowa's Y2K Reproduction Quilt is Finished!!

I am posting this photo on behalf of Whitestone (Judy in Iowa) who sent it to me and let me know that she has finished her reproduction of her Y2K quilt that she originally made in 1998.  You might recall that earlier this year she came on the BB and was searching for a specific Y2K fabric to use in the border.  I got lucky and found it for her and then she was able to use it for the border of this gorgeous quilt which is now wall hanging size (compared to her original which is queen bed size).   Judy made the reproduction for her daughter.

Jean in Mill Bay is now going to use all of Judy's leftovers to create something.  The challenge has been passed on.  :-)
