    Lynnie, What a beautiful display of quilts. I'm sure they were much admired by viewers. I think sometimes people who have no interest in quilts think of them as something old grannies make to keep warm. Before I decided to quilt I had no real idea of the beautiful and artistic planning that went into the quilts. It waas an eye opening experience for me and i'm sure for many others that see them. Might even stir the artistic bug in someone to get started quilting.

    I agree with your comment Sweetwaterquilter. In my case I just felt it was something that doesn't interest me at all because it seemed boring. Fast forward 2 yrs later of sewing... I enjoy it! Where I think I am not the creative type at all, someone else makes a comment to the contrary. It is fun and relaxing to say the least!

    Take time to give... It is too short a day to be selfish.

    Lyn; How nice that all looks!! I really need to get mine displayed in my home in a way that I can enjoy them all together and guests can, too. We are artists for sure!

    Oh spank me, you did and I was not on top of that. So sorry, let finishing a quilt and SIL visiting snubb my thought process, or it could have been the excitement of getting my May Crazy quilt. Who knows, just loving the flow. Thanks.

    Come August and ALL my dolls quilts sent to me will be displayed at a local quilt show. I had to choose just a few of them that would fit the cabinet spaces for the library display.

    I am really happy to have rwquilts as my swap partner this month, and I have 3 teeny blocks already done as a start on her quilt.

    Lynnie, What a fantastic display of all your quilts. Maybe it will spark an interest in a new generation of quilters. Or at least plant the seed for a later date.

    I love showing your quilts to my local quilting friends.

    PMd my partner for this month, Starshine. Scoped out her member site and her posts, I was stalking the info and what has been said and I believe I have already figured out what to make her and have not even spoke with her. This must be a good sign. It may take me all month to sew what I think will work. When get home will pull out so I can look at it the whole while thinking got to get on that one now. I have two graduation projects to do and two other swaps that take priority first before this one. Would you believe they are all cut up as well. I do like to cut fabric, good thing I did that before the hand surgery, may have taken longer to ge tthat far.

    That's clever to look and see what your partner liked in the past. Hope your hand is going to be okay, because you surely give new meaning to "having your work cut out for you".

    I keep getting curious QuilterMomma - what does it say under your really cute sqirrel avatar? Squirrels + Coffee....?

    My partner Kris told me what she liked and lucky for me an idea just popped right into my head. I'm just a bit nervous after seeing what she did last month, because it was so beautiful that she really raised the bar!

    Gosh nancia, you were drugged up to the eyeballs for most of May so no wonder you forgot. I hope you are recovering well but I can see that you must be by some of your hilarious posts
