This is another one she made, also in applique, that is just gorgeous. She meticulously hand stitches around all the applique for added detail. I love the technique she uses -- she's a very talented lady!

And here's the photo of the top all sewn together. Good luck to everyone in the quilt along. I'm looking forward to seeing all the completed tops. Thanks, again to Kelly for putting this together. I love the pattern and plan to make a larger size when I'm not so strapped to complete holiday projects.

The mini quilt for the CGQC is done. I sent it to my "secret partner" yesterday via express mail so I believe she should have gotten it today. I sure hopes she likes it and enjoys it for years to come.
The trees are 3-D flying geese and the whole project was really fun to put together. I keep checking my mail, hoping to find my mini-quilt, but so far nothing has come for me. The excitement and anticipation is killing me. Isn't it so much fun when you get a gift in the mail?? I just love it.
The deadline is October 30th and I can't wait to see all the finished mini-quilts. Check them out through Dandelion Quilts. She has a list of those participating on her side bar.

Well, since I must choose I'll have to say that I'm "The practical one". Not really my type of shoe but sure fits my personality. And the other one that fits is the young at heart. I believe that you are as young as you feel and should never dwell on your real age.
I must confess, though, I've always worn heels and on a daily basis I wear either "The Sexy One" or "The Sophisticated One" since I do dress up for work. The minute I get home I kick off my heels and throw on the slippers.
Hope this helps you get to know me.

Somehow I can't seem to pass up participating in these challenges, my hubby says I like the pressure -- it motivates me I guess. Really, I just want to make everything in sight and become a great quilter like Kelly, Joan and alot of you quilters out there. I so admire the work of so many of you when I visit your blogs.
I know it will be fun and I'm really looking forward to it. I signed up to make the mini version so it won't be all that bad.

(No Photo on this one)
And, last but not least is finishing my mini-quilt for the CGQC exchange that must be complete by the end of the month. I must say this one is almost complete. I still need to add the batting and the binding and then it's done.
Like most of you, I have a number of other projects in the works that I won't list but if I happen to finish them I'll post pictures. I'm anxious to do some paper piecing so who knows I just might be able to fit in a project this month.
