Orange Monochromatic and Kristy's Dream

Mary Lea brought her version of Kristy's Dream to Show and Tell recently. I still get excited when someone uses my patterns.

And, after a few days of picking out some of the quilting on the Orange Monochromatic top, I am back on the machine. I think I was starting to get withdrawals as I try to sew something everyday. The Orange Monochromatic is for the month of April for Judy's Challenge over at Patchwork Times. The blocks for the Red top are done, but not sewn together and the Indigo top is ready for quilting -- which I will tackle next.
I am so glad July is here -- it is a slower month at work, so I hope to catch up on a few quilt projects, and -- finish writing 2 patterns, pillowcases, three mug rugs -- oh my goodness, the list is just too long to post.

To add to my already busy life, I have recently joined the local Art Guild. Our mom was a painter (oils) and very talented. She did sew (a lot of everything), except quilts -- I guess it sometimes skips one generation. My goal is to one day bring more art to my quilt tops --- I guess we will see.
