Some more entries.
I am so thrilled this year to have entered in competition. Here are some photos of quilts that won. My quest to reach 120 UFO Completions is getting closer and my work is getting better as I go. I will say, you must learn to do binding correct to finally finish a project to its fullest beauty. After getting the comments again from the judges on bindings, I now am mastering the art of binding. It really does make the quilt look better.
Is there an available date for the 2013 Houston International Quilt Show?

Time to start Row G! (Just for a break!)
Thanks for following my journey!
Hello fellow quilters. I am new to this site.
My maternal grandmother taught me to quilt. She was an award winning quilter. Not a summer fair went by without one of her quilts taking a ribbon!
I like to make serviceable quilts. String quilts are my absolute favorite because they make up fast, are very durable and I can use bits and pieces.
Here is a quilt top I've just finished. If The Man of the house can get the sewing machine FIXED (grrrr) I'll get it completely finished this

First blog post. Hmm....
I will begin with... WTH was I thinking when I took on this rag quilt project?! One snafu after another, and wow.... Hoping to finish it in the next day or so (even though the "pattern" claimed I could make it in ONE day!)
As chilly as it is today, though, Im wishing it was already done!!!
I feel like the Little Engine that Could!

I found out yesterday that a friend of mine willneed to have treatments for cancer staring Monday. Dr told her that she need to shave her hair off. She has been fitted for a wig for her head, however, they told her that she should not wear the wig around open flames and while she is cooking at the stove. They don't have the $$ for a real hair wig so she has the one that isn't. I talked with her about head wraps and she said that she would like to try one. So I have been looking for a free pattern
