IT'S BEEN A LONG TIME!

I can't believe how long it has been since I have posted here! Life has just three days and taken off at a record speed it seems. After my trip to Kansas City I was home for three days and then we left for an unplanned trip to Michigan for over a week. So........nothing has happened on the stamping or sewing front in quite sometime. However, when I returned home late Monday night I found I had a telephone message that was very exciting. The quilt that I made for our quilt guilds "paint Bucket" challenge was part of the group accepted into the American Quilters Society (AQS) show in Nashville. It will hang there as part of the Ultimate Guild Challenge competition at the end of August.

The quilt is based on a block designed by Carol Doak in celebration of the 3000th member of her group on Yahoo that shares in the love of paper piecing. I had two yellow and two gray paint chips that I had to match to fabric and also had to use the black and white fabric that is in my border. I actually have shown this quilt on this blog when I first made it, but seeing as I haven't created anything new for a while thought I would bring it out again with the good news.

I wish I could go to Nashville and see it hanging there as well as the other wonderful quilts that will be on display, but I don't think that will happen this time around. But it is an honor that it was chosen to be on display in any case!
