On April 19, Lori from Humble Quilts came to my guild and the workshop after the meeting was strip quilts.  I decided to make one with purple, orange, yellow and pink.  I added a green polka dot for the setting triangles and the top is pictured below.  

It is basted now and this pictures shows a little of the top and the Tula Pink backing.  I plan to have it finished in time for the next guild meeting and it will then be donated to a shelter.  It measures 58 1/4" x 76 1/2".

I made a new opening picture out of some of my past strip quilts.  I'll probably change it again soon because the middle quilt is quite blurry.  That quilt belongs to my 14 year old grandson.

This next quilt will also be a donation quilt.  I will keep this one at home to have it available for a need that might come up unexpectedly.  This was a project that I worked on now and then for a couple years.  All the pieces are 3 1/2" x 2".  Great for using scraps!  It's called Bonnie Lass and measures 66" x 89".  I had to hang it on the clothes line sideways or it would have dragged on the ground.

My sister's cat Zuzu has taken a liking to one of the fishes that I sent for Christmas.  She's using it as a pillow!

Isn't she sweet?

My flag is flying for Memorial Day.

Let's all pray for our country.

Trunk Show

 I was invited to do a Trunk Show for the Willamette Valley Quilters in Dayton, Oregon at their April meeting.  I was very pleased to have been asked, but was a little nervous about it.  I think it went pretty well.  Here are a few pictures (some of the pictures didn't turn out so I am getting them from my coputer).  You have probably seen all of these quilts if you've been visiting my blog over the years, so I'm not going to post all of them.
