I hadn't given it any thought whatsoever, but a pregnant friend from my quilt guild asked if I would take her quilt to the Yamhill County Fair for her as her baby was due at the same time and she thought she might be busy! Well, I decided to enter my Baskets of Blue since I was going there anyway. It won First Place in the category of appliqué by one person and the Best of Show ribbon! What a nice surprise!
This week I got busy and basted a couple wall hangings. The "Oak Leaves and Turkey Feathers" is one that I started a few years ago and I wanted to get it finished for fall so I could have it as "Fall" decor. Yesterday I started quilting it. It is quite big - it just about covered the whole top of my king size bed, but I didn't measure it.
I also basted my round robin from last year and want to get it finished so I can take it to my guild meeting in September. We have been off for the summer and I plan to hang both of these quilts in the "Treasusres in the Attic" show at the Yamhill County Heritage Museum in September.
This is my first round robin and I have decided that I will do it again this year (after having decided not to do it again). I think I'm a glutton for punishment! They can be fun, but they can also be very frustrating - trying to come up with a border for a different RR every month! Why do I do this?
