Tricks and Treats

Have you seen these "Goblins"?

How are these for Halloween Tricks and Treats?

One Super Woman, One Pixie, and One Bat Man. If you see these three give them lots of sugar and then I will send them home with their parents!!

Time Out

I have to admit to not working on my Baby Jane this weekend. The State Fair is going on and of course we had to go. I had 3 pieces entered and did manage to blue ribbons on two of them.

The Tulip is one that we exhibited during the library exhibit because it's background is done in the log cabin style.

The red, white, and black is a miniature that I did for our guild challenge last year. I was really disappointed in how it was displayed. It was in a case that showed lots of Carolina and Clemson pieces. Anyone who knows me, knows that I AM NOT A GAMECOCK, no matter how badly Clemson in playing.

How about Piper at the Fair?

These three are cut from the same cloth.

Look at how Piper and Dick attack their corn dogs!!!

All Piper wanted to ride was the Merry Go Round. She did not want anything to do with the Horses, just to sit on the bench and ride. She had a fantastic time and rode 2 times with her Mom and 2 times with her Uncle Jay.

This has to be the best trip to the fair since my children were young. Of course we couldn't enjoy it as much then because they were our children.

This is where I spent my Saturday, at the Quilted Pearl. I was taking a class with Lynn Buske on her miniature 4-patch swirl. You know I can't resist something that says miniature.

I do hope everyone has a good week. I will be getting everything together to attend Quilters of South Carolina Fall Retreat. I am looking forward to the whole experience. That said, I will be 4-5 blocks behind on my Baby Jane when I return and will then spend the next week catching up. See you later,

Hooray It's Done!!!!

I can't believe it. Anina assigned this block, A-5 which is called Cathie's Campfire, and I had already done it at some other time.
So, hooray it's done!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now to try to finish getting ready for QSC's Fall retreat. I have my blocks cut and all of the blocks together, except for the star blocks. I am taking a class to make a quilt called "How Far Is It to Bethlehem?" from the book Adoration Quilts by Rachel W. N. Brown. So all I have to do now is get the rest of the fabric together for the applique.
I'm also taking a class this weekend on a 4patch swirl, but in miniature. This quilt is similar to the Stack and Whack, except it is a four patch and this one is in miniature. Can't wait to start this one.
Need to get back to work. Have a good week,

Baby Jane Goes to Quilt Camp

What is wrong with this picture? The block is actually
D-11 Snow Crystal. It took me at least 4 hours to complete this Block while at Quilt Camp. Tonight while I am taking pictures of my completed blocks it all of a sudden dawns on me that this block is not correctly done.

All four of the large diamonds are suppose to be gold. Sooooooooooo, guess that I will have to re-do this one, but for now I am going to put it aside. I need a day or two to work up the nerve to start it again. It was a BEAR!!!

Now we have K-10 Quandry. Done while at Quilt Camp

How about M-13 Lynette's Diamond?
Done while at Quilt Camp.

This is Courtney's Stethoscope. I did this one today.

This is D-6 Challenge. Did this one at, you guessed it,
Quilt Camp

This is G-1 Hattie's Hen House,
done at Quilt Camp

This one is LS-9 Kiwi.

I did this while at Quilt Camp last weekend. In fact most of these blocks were done while at Quilt Camp.

This one was done today. It is TR-3 Checkerboard.

I will have a different post re: the real happenings at "Quilt Camp" in a few days. It was one fantastic weekend with 17 of our best friends. I am soooooooooo sorry that you missed it, but I hope that you can make it in February 2009.
