    Smile I can't beleive I won!

    Last spring area LQS sponsored a 6 shop + 1 retreat shop hop. As a challenge they each distributed 1 HST paper with 2 pieces of fabric. Each set made 28 HST 2" finished, so we had 7 sets of HST's. The challenge was to finish a quilt using at least 1 set of HST's from each stop and to bring it in for the fall shop hop. This is my entry and it was declared the winner! I now have gift certificates to the 7 places--oh oh more fabric!

    Thank you all. It's going on the back of my new loveseat as a protection against Gkid wear and tear--and a cozy place to curl up and read to them!
