    Very impressive - they do not look like the work of a newbie at all.

    Oh Wow - I don't know how I missed Pinwheels on Point yesterday. Gus and I folded the Log Cabin Sampler (we helped with the take-down of the show). It is quite lovely.

    Cheers, K

    Machine. The log cabin quilt is a king size. I did it in 2 ft x 2 ft sections, quilt-as-you-go, and then joined them with the (mostly red) sashing. Some straight-line stitching with my walking foot, and some FMQ.

    The other one is 54" square. Mostly FMQ. The real fun part of this one was piecing the chain link border, as the pieces were very small -- each link of the chain was 4" square, with 16 1" blocks.

    How neat! I'll have to look for you at the next group meeting -- I saw your photo on your blog ... so you cannot hide :-)

    Unfortunately Cub Scouts meets at the same time as the guild, so it is likely that I won't make it to another meeting until May since I'm both Den Leader for Webelos I and Assistant Cub Master... a little hard to skip those meetings.

    Cheers, K

    Congrats! We just had our Bi-Annual quilt show and I helped with the folding after the judging and color/workmanship and binding are the things that go into a prize winning quilt - which is why I will probably never have one - I hate doing binding; therefore, i'm not very good at it!~i need a one on one class for machine quilting and binding! Dr. said this a.m. that 11/10 I have to have my rotary cuff (R) scoped, and if I have to have surgery, I heard it was 6 mos. recovery time!AAUUGGHH, what will I do with no right hand for that long time? Think positive, think positive, think positive, ........
