    Here are some of the things I've been working on lately. I made 2 blocks for Project Hokie Hope, Friendship Stars, one has my friend Andrew's name & the other has his sister's name, both of them grads of Virginia Tech. The signature blocks are for Nihal in Istanbul. The Feathered Star I made in a guild workshop with Ann Turley. The center fabric is from last January's Road to California show - the theme fabric of the show. I got it layered & pin-basted last weekend, just have to figure out how I'm going to quilt it. :wink:

    Now to get to all the BOM's I'm behind on! LOL

    The first pictures won't come up. Instead there is a message that says they were probably deleted.

    Sue,
    I love your blocks. The feathered star is wonderful!
    I have a question. What writing implement did you use to write on fabric? Thanks for any information you can give me.

    For the little bird & the "VT" logo, I used a combination of Sharpie Ultra Fine Point permanent pens & Pigma pens. I started out using just the Pigmas, but the ones I have at home were TOO fine, so I switched to the Sharpies. As long as I didn't hold them down on the fabric too long, I didn't have any bleeding problem with them & the colors they have now are wonderful! I also did iron them too, just in case.

    Hope that helps :D

    Thanks Sue.
    I'm planning a quilt with my grandchildren's handprints. I want to add blocks with some of their artwork. I'm debating on using crayons or allowing these little ones access to the sharpies. :lol: I'm leaning towards the crayons but the sharpies would be brighter. Such a dilemma!

    I looked and looked for a flaw in any of them so I wouldn't be so jealous :D But whine, I didn't find anything except exceptional workmanship. Really really gorgeous. You are ne talented lady!

    Aaahhhh shucks! :wink: Thanks Vicki! I know where they are, but I ain't tellin'! lol
    Yvonne - What if YOU trace around their hands, then let them color the handprints with the crayons? Just remind them to color 'em in REALLY good! Then you could go around them again with a Sharpie to brighten it even more. I'm looking forward to seeing it! :thumbup:
