I think I finally have it cut to mitre the border correctly, but it took a lot of sketches and measurements to get there. I hope to sew this afternoon during naptime.

  3. Houston spills over

    I had a fabulous trip to International quilt festival at the beginning of the month. I spent 3 1/2 days in the quilting bubble and it felt great. Wednesday night was preview and I saw about 1/3 of the displayed quilts. I knew art quilting was big, but I had no idea that it would outweight the tradtional pieces.

    Thursday was spent looking at more juried quilts and in class with Cindy ...

Just a composition book in which I wrote when I completed blocks and anecdotes about the family. So precious to reread things from 4 years ago.

I know I can do better than what they run at the store. It does change my plans for the year as I will not be able to do applesauce or more tomatoes.

    I also plundered mom and dads house. He has a fruit orchard and the pears this year were abundant. Since they do not use them, I grabbed them to can. One tree probably
