Great Weekend!!!!!!!!!

You know you have had a great weekend when your football team won.
Goooooooo Tigerrrrrrrrs.

Also, you know you have had a good weekend when you have a great quilt come off of the frame looking really good. That's happened too.

This is Beth's sheep quilt:

I am not so sure that you can really see the quilting on this one so, this is the pantograph that I used to quilt it. 

The whole project turned out great. I used King Tut in the top and Sew Fine in the bobbin and Olivia just purred.

Now, on to other projects.

By the way, I have some open time in the schedule if anyone is trying to get something done in time for Christmas. Just call me.

Design Group

I was going through some old emails today and happened upon some pictures that I have not shared. We have a local group called simply 'The Design Group' that meets once a month. Sara started this group while the Quilted Pearl was still open. Once The Pearl closed we had to find another place to meet, so, we now meet at Greenhill Baptist Church in West Columbia. But, I digress.
One of our group decided some months ago that we all should make a Lone Star Quilt. This has expanded to include the Devine Quilt Guild and an exhibit at the Richland County Public Library in the fall of 2012. Back to the subject Joyce.
The pictures that I am posting here show to what extent quilters will go to have 'just the right color' in a particular area of a quilt. Helen needs some additional color or toning down of a color in this piece, so, what did she do? She brought the top and the fabric pens to Design Group and we all sat around and 'colored' the fabric.
We had a good time. We always do. We are all very opinionated and have been known to convince people to completely 'deconstruct' tops, just to change one small block. A great group of quilters of all levels.
Just thought that I would post this today, just for fun. Thanks to Jodi for taking the pictures.

Look out for 'NEW BLOGGER'

Blogger has 'updated' their site and the way that we post. Many times this can cause real problems, so, please be patient as I learn how to use this new system.

Camp Gravatt and Auburn!!!!

This is the Camp Gravatt Quilt. The blocks were designed and made by the campers and staff of Camp Gravatt. I have had the priviledge of putting this quilt together. It Looks Great!!! I just hope that it raises a lot of money at the Under the Tent Event at the end of this month.

Auburn Quilt for Jamie


This is a commission quilt for a friend. It was very difficult for him to order this quilt since he is a die hard Alabama Fan.

Hope you have a great weekend.

Spring 2012 Quilt Camp - 10th Year anniversary!!

Just a note to let everyone know that all of the allotted single Motel/Lodge rooms have been reserved. However, we have plenty of Cottage singles still available.

Double Motel/Lodge are getting in short supply and I have one camper who is looking for a roommate. She currently has a double Motel/Lodge room reserved.

This is just an update. Get those registrations in soon.

Judy's 'Escargot'

This was soooooo much fun. After a few weeks of hormonal problems with Olivia, the sun and moon aligned perfectly and she has beautiful tension once again.

This top was perfectly pieced and perfectly square. The back is pieced and even though I did not get a picture, I actually was in a position to match the centers of the backing with the centers of the top. For this day, Life is good.
