    This is a picture of a quilt that I am donating for a hog roast we are having tomorrow. All proceeds will go to a one room school house that we are restoring.
    By the way, the quilt police is alive and kicking. One woman made a comment that one of my blocks was not done right. She must have gotten me at the wrong time because I asked her why she always picks at everything I do. Oh well. Looks ok to me and that is all that matters.

    Mary

    I also put a picture of the school.

    They should make lots of $$$ on your quilt Queen, it's beautiful!! That quilt cop should just pay up or mind her own bees wax!! The corners on your snowball blocks look like bright butterflies flittering around the flowers :D:D:D :thumbup:

    One (major) thing I like about the guild I joined is show and tell - and you know what - NOBODY criticizes anything....

    did that woman make/donate something with a lot of work involved?
    Some people aren't happy unless they manage to make somebody else feel bad about something.... if it isn't obvious then they actively look for something to criticize... tell her to blow it out her 'whatever' ....

    yashudda asked her if she was on the rag or something....buwhaahahaaaaa, having a bad day??.... :roll: :mrgreen:

    Your quilt looks great! Hope you raise alot of money!! The schoolhouse is really cool. Good luck in restoring it! Maybe the quilt police didn't have her quotient of donuts that day!! Tell her to mind her own business!!!

    Your quilt is beautiful. She is probably jealous because she isn't as good as you.

    Your quilt looks AWESOME and I'm sure it will bring in a pretty penny!! Let us know how well it does!!! As for Miss quilt police lady... she can take her high nose snubbing butt outta here so other people who can appreciate it can view it and say all the lovely comments that it is definetely going to get!

    The quilt police lady should stay home!!! Didn't all our mothers teach us "If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all?" That is such a beautiful quilt and I would love to be the winner of the quilt. I would also buy a ticket or two.

    That is a beautiful quilt!! And I'm sure the winner will love it.
    I hope the "quilt cop's" comments don't bother you much as YOU know your work is quality.
    I try to remember to respond to that kind of nastiness with, "Well, THAT was unkind!" and walk away. They are left with their bitter words and the knowledge that you are too gracious to make an equally nasty comment.
    I hope you raise loads of $$$ for the schoolhouse... and that you have a good time to boot!!

    Dona :P
