I worked on this baby today , hand sewing the binding. I love this quilt. quilted in a very simple cloud panto.



This is a quilt designed and sewn by one of our charity quilters who doesn't come to meetings but sews from home. Lou makes the most amazing "bright" quilts for children.



Here are some of the Sewlmates, the group I meet with weekly for quilting. Great to have quilting Friends!!

One yard of each of these great Michael Miller Fabrics, Pod Vine and Pod Stripe in gorgeous shades of Deep Chocolate Brown and Luscious Lime Green! Almost makes me hungry!!!



So you have till Monday May 3rd at midnight EST . Good Luck and Thanks for stopping by!
