    Debi got a reaction from meg in Winners for the batik strip-swap! Photo added   
    Hi Linda,
    Finished my quilt top last night from the strip swap.  I am in group 2 and received my strips on Feb. 8 and finished 33 days later.  The pattern is called Rising Stars and is a strip club pattern from Cozy Quilt Designs.  This whole experience was really outside my comfort zone as I like to organization placements of colour but I didn't even try.  Really like the results.  Thank you so much for hosting this swap.  I will definitely take part again!

    Debi reacted to Anne from Guam in Art quilt SOLD!   
    Thanks everyone! Well the art show starts tonight and I was forced to choose a title.
    It is Field of Dreams. I decided to be brave and price it at $500. Yikes!

    Debi reacted to Dyan in Puppy pads   
    I just finished 10 of these, what my niece calls, puppy pads.  She breeds dogs and needed something for the mommas and puppies to lay on.  She priced some, but they looked very cheap to her, so she asked if I could make her some.  I had piles of this green jean type of material and piles of double knit that I was never going to do anything with.  I was really happy to get rid of it, to tell the truth!  And this gave me a great chance to practice, practice, practice!!  On some of them I did a puppy paw panto and others I just did a large meander. Again, I am totally impressed with my lovely APQS machine!!

    Debi reacted to CindyT in Kansas Comfort...my latest creation (Updated: Pattern Available)   
    This quilt is a test quilt of a pattern I came up with from playing with log cabin blocks I purchased in a grab bag from the local quilt store that just throws what they don't want into a huge trash can for others to go through. Kind of like the old saying, "one man's trash is another man's treasure?" All but one of the fabrics is from the Kansas Troubles lines of fabric. I finally finished quilting and binding it this week. I just wanted some simple custom quilting and I really like the results. Straight lines following the beadboard border, CC's in the 49-patch blocks, straight line 1/4" outlining in the dark parts of the log cabin blocks and feathers in the light areas, and sunshine rays in the setting triangles. I had requested a board be made to look like sunshine rays from Dennis Rech before Christmas. I was able to use it for the 1st time on my very own quilt. I LOVE IT! His response to my "do I have your permission to give you credit as to where I got the board before I post on the forum" was "Oh golly gosh, YES. Also let the forum know that I have a warm spot in my heart for women who send me chocolate chip cookies." So if you are so inclined to love the effect I got from this sunshine ray board, hit him up with some chocolate chip cookies for a great deal on one! Thanks for looking. Oops...I changed the pictures as I was just able to hang it outside and take better pictures. 1st one is of part of the back of the quilt, then detail, then full.
    FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO WERE INTERESTED, THE PATTERN IS NOW AVAILABLE! Please send me a U2U if you'd like to purchase one. Thanks!

    This quilter likes her pyjamas as I am sure everyone else does, so if we all think of each other in our PJ's then there can be no royalty!
