I have had so much fun the last two months getting projects completed and starting a few new ones.

I had this pile of bright Kona solids and then I paired it with this wonderful text
fabric to make my first ever 
Prayer Flag.

This is so cute.  I want to make some more.  I put a facing on this one instead of a binding.

One of my friends was offering a class in raw-edge applique and this was the pattern we used.
Needless to say, mine does not look like the pattern at all!!

Here was an opportunity for me to use some of my hand dyes and some commercial fabrics to do something very whimsical.

My Modern Quilt Guild has been doing a design series as our programs.  This month was the Drunkard's Path and this is my version.

Should I turn it this way, or, should I turn it this way???

Another fun "sketch" piece I worked on were these lantern shapes using the Quick Curve Ruler.  I think I put these sketch pieces together mostly so I can quilt them.  I love straight-line quilting!

I think this is enough for this post.  I will share more in a later post.

April and May have been very busy months for me. This is the first of several posts.  Early in April we started work on the 2015 Community Quilt Show, "A 4-Patch Celebration" which will be held for the month of September at Hamilton Place Mall, Chattanooga.  The quilts will be on display in the Center Court for shoppers and visitors to view.
My job has been to get our sponsors together and to get the word out for Call for Quilts.  We have some awesome sponsors of this event who will be providing many door prizes for us to give.
To request an entry form, email me at

Our VIP Block Party is an after-hours event as part of AQS QuiltWeek Chattanooga.  
Last year's event was a lot of fun and this year we will have two Viewer's Choice Awards.
Tickets will be available for a donation to sample tastings from area restaurants.
Donations will be accepted to get tickets for our door prizes.

Our efforts will raise money for The Next Door Chattanooga.
