Carol's Dream

Every year, a challenge to make a quilt from the "same fabric" brings out the most diverse and beautiful quilts.  For the 2013/2014 Challenge, a golden batik (see border above) was chosen.  A wonderful surprise, Carol (top right) made her challenge quilt from my "Kristy's Dream" pattern.  The quilt was designed for Moda's Bake Shop a few years ago and is still available.  

A special thanks to Mary Lea who hosted the challenge and kept us motivated all year.  Below is the group shot!

February Scrappy Challenge

I took this picture 3 weeks ago...then lost my camera.  Although I tore my house apart, it just disappeared.  I have not posted since.  I have been shopping for a new camera, with hopes of finding one similar --- no such luck.

Then an email from Jackie (Black Cat Creations) suggested I use Red/White/Blue for a working pattern.  I went straight to my red stash and there laying among the red fat quarters, nesting quietly is my RED Olympus.  I must have pulled that fat quarter drawer out 100 times looking for the camera.

Now, I have some catching up to do.

I am too late for Judy's link up at Patchwork Times February Scrappy Block, but that is ok, I am just so happy to find my camera!!!!
