2008 challenge

Before I get to the 2008 challenge, I am including a picture of me working on my granddaughter's quilt.  I'm almost finished!!!

Monday night I went to my quilt guild meeting - the first one of the new year.  We have all new officers now (I'm not one of them this time - Woo Hoo!).  Our new president gave us a challenge.  The picture below has a paint chip card with three shades of blue that I will need to incorporate in the item that I will make.  Everyone got a different color card.  With it are some of the latest fabrics that I have bought and one of them has the two darker colors in it!  That was lucky because I bought that piece before I got the challenge!  I don't have any idea yet what I will do.  It has to be at least 25" x 25".  Any suggestions?  I don't really have any plans for the other fabric, although I am thinking about making a double nine patch quilt with light colored fabrics and a variety of colors for the small nine patches.
This is a shelf of little treasures that I have hanging in my sewing room.  Do you like the little chickens?  Whenever I see these at a cheap price, I buy them.  My grandma gave me one when I was a girl (it is in my china cabinet).

I better get back to working on the quilt!


  1. I collect chickens.....not the lives ones. I have some of the glass chickens on the nest/basket.

  2. I've got a cutey little yellow chicken that somebody here sent to me! It holds one of my son's baby teeth(kinda weird, I know). The colors in your facric and the colors on your shelf are the same! Love, C

  3. HI! back again, thanks for the e-card! I saw the quilt, the colors are beautiful! and the fir tree pillows are way cool too! I hoep you post some pix here of them ;0)
