Red and White Quilt Finished!

Check it out! Red and White Single Irish Chain...done!

I have to finish the back tomorrow, and then try to find someone who can move me to the top of the list for quilting. With the East Cobb Show coming up this year, I know everyone will be very busy.

I went by Tiny Stitches after Hoopsisters class at Atlanta Sewing Center today to ask Melinda if she had time to quilt it. As I suspected, with Shop Hop and classes and quilts already in the que AND she's going to market with her sister in May, she didn't have time. Melinda does beautiful quilting - she quilted Ra, Batik Sun Dance, and Salsa with Extra Guacamole on the Side. But, when you're that good, you're in demand. 

As I was looking around in Tiny Stitches, I saw the shoe panel that Bessie had been looking for! After she finished embellishing her cute quilt last year, she said she wanted to do another, but couldn't find the panel any more. I was surprised to see this panel, and thought maybe they had reissued it...but Melinda told me they had just found it when they were moving stuff around.

And I found these two great panels...I see them as the center medallion in a bigger quilt, but they are fantastic panels in and of themselves. I have to show these now, because who knows when I will actually do something with them?

I must get busy finishing my quilts for the East Cobb show...I want to show the Amazon Star, If The Shoe Fits, and Japanese Fans. I would LOVE to show Misty Blue Latte, but I'm not sure I can finish it. Well - I gotta get going, huh? 

Before you criticize someone, walk a mile in their shoes. That way - when you criticize them - you're a mile away and you have their shoes!

Jeanette, do you have a flickr account? Some of the quilts you mentioned I don't remember seeing before. Are you holding out on me??
