we have a winner!



hiyall,

just a quick post tonight. I picked up my 3 pieces that I entered into the peanut festival. I won a ribbon for one of the pieces! I won a third place ribbon for my hand pieced, hand quilted, hand appliqued doll quilt! the quilt is approx 15' by 18''. its a pattern I got from an old american patchwork and quilting magazine. I worked on it during my lunch hour at work and its all made from my scrap bag. that includes backing and batting!



this is a door charm that I made in one of my bee meetings. its machine appliqued and machine quilted shadow stitch 2x around each pumpkin. I called the bottom pumpkin 'the pumpkin on acid'......its an old hippie joke and yes back in the day, I was one!
this was from a class I took at my LQS. the original top is 54'' x 54''. there were do many scraps left over I was able to make a baby quilt! this quilt is approx 24'' sqaure, big enough for a premie. I did add a little bit of yardard from my stash to finish it.


Rose saga part 2, still no word on the yellow rose replacement. a friend suggested I get another one and bill the reality company. I may end up doing that. I hope the hell Chantel does not expect me to chat up the potential buyers of the townhouse. I dont have nothing nice to say about her or her ethics......

Keep On Stitch'n On!

How cute is that - I love it. I hope you have a cute little doll to sit on top of the quilt. You did a great job - love the pattern.

Congratulations, I love all three. I think that even though it's a doll quilt I'd have to keep the prize winner myself, it's too cute to give away. IMHO.
