Top Done

Well I got this top done today. I think it turned out OK. This means I have one more quilt to put in our Guild Quilt Show next month. These are blocks from the 2006 Hop Around Houston. That was the first time I went to Houston for Quilt Festival. So when I was there I thought it would be nice to make something marking my trip. What you had to do was go to each of the booths listed on a form. At the booth you got the fabric and pattern to make the block. Each shop had a finishing kit, but nothing really hit me. So a few weeks ago I decided to get these blocks out and make something out of them. I was able to find some of the fabric that went with the blocks. Then I saw a picture of a quilt on point and thought this would be perfect for these blocks. The only problem was the blocks looked to busy together. So I then thought I would sash them to break up the patterns and that seemed to work out pretty good. I had to also figure the setting triangles and then added borders. Hope to be posting more tops in the next couple of weeks. Well I hope everyone enjoys. TaTa for now. P.S. PeeWee hope you have a good night. Call me if you need to vent anymore.

Sorry about not posting anything lately. It's been a busy few weeks. I've been on the LAQuilter Blog and Vicky is doing a Block of the Month Month. I thought I have so many that I'm working on that I should take on this challenge. So here are a few works in progress. The light colored block is a BOM called Fairy Dust by Starr Designs. The other one is The Great Pumpkin Quilt. I'm sure hoping to get these both done by next month. The Blocks at the top are from the 2006 Hop Around Houston. This quilt top should be done by Saturday afternoon. I think these will keep me busy for a little bit of time. TaTa for now. P.S. PeeWee 4 1/2 weeks till FL!!
