    Oregon Quilting Challenge Project

    In August, LadyElisabeth offered some pretty fall fabrics for her Sept. taping. I made this table runner using Angle Play templates. I really enjoyed practicing my free motion quilting and I'm pleased with how it came out.

    The photo does not do justice to this beautiful work. The speciality threads made the embroidery work stand out and the quilting around the wheat looked like wheat blowing in the wind.

    Gorgeous! I'm going to have to look at those templates when I go to NW Quilters Expo. You are sure making wonderful things with them.

    Very beautiful indeed! Finally, a show I can go to. Close to me, kind of, 250 miles away, close enough that I can get there in 5 hours anyway.

    Lady Elisabeth, do you have many blues in your stash? Perhaps you can put them on your website and I can pick out a few to get. I can then give to Julie and she can make me one. Maybe?

    Julie, I think your challenge project was the best of all of them! The embroidery made it so classy.

    Here's what I made with the challenge fabrics: "Leaves in the cabin" pillow

    Yes, my leaves are embroidered. I love those designs from Emblibrary. I can't wait to see all of the projects on the TV show.

    Well, we do go "on location". Perhaps next year we can plan a trip to where ever you are. Is there a quilt show planned nearby?
