Initially Yours Challenge

     monday night at the West Side Quilters Guild meeting the challenge for 2014 was revealed. There were 20 quilts revealed. What a great showing. Our challenge was to make a small quilt using our initials. I had such a hard time coming up with my quilt. Actually the quilt was easy as I had started another challenge quilt with Riiley Blake fabrics and missed the deadline for that one, so I finished it for this challenge instead. Here are the quilts.......

                So many different quilts!

            Each with their own personality

        And each with a story told

                Love the artistic expression

Oh man I love this quilting

        Creativity at its finest

     Words with meaning

       Some with dimension

      This is mine. Can you guess what
      I said with my initials?

      No, not Jeri's Baskets.....

      Love this show and tell quilt of Barbara's'

        And this Lazy Sunday by Stephanie.

   Sorry got a little off track.....

           Here is the back of my Initially Yours

Lovely Weekend.

What a nice weekend we had. The weather was beautiful. We took our travel trailer over to the Sisters area and had a little get away.

Got a little fishing in on the Crooked River.....

Got a little stitchin' done while watching the fishing world go by.....

Met some new friends......

and of course spent a little time in the Stitchin' Post. A different place after the flurry of the Quilt Show has passed. 

A little stash enhancement

A little of this!

And a little of that!

and for next years Quilt Show I booked a reservation at a local RV park to spend the week!

On The Longarm Today

         Quilted two quilts over the last two days. 
            The first is for a friend at work. 
             Just love the fabric in this one.

         Such happy fabric!

          Swirly quilting .

             And the backing is so pretty!

And then today I finished a baby quilt for my daughters friend.
I used Minky on the back, a little stretchy but not too bad.

        Chantilly Lace panto that I forgot I had.
        I think it made a nice compliment to the quilt.
        Now on to binding and in the mail with it.
