I still haven't gotten caught up on sharing pics of projects I have been working on, but I pre-entered two quilts in a quilt show that was this weekend. One was done and the other was just a top! I worked hard last weekend and into mid week and finished it! It is a Judy Niemeyer paper pieced pattern called Crown of Thorns. Nothing like a little pressure! The other quilt I entered was my green/lime/black quilt shown here.

I was surprised to receive a first place ribbon in machine quilting, non-professional! It matches the quilt!
My daughter's "twin" is having a baby in June. They met their freshman year in high school and found out they had the same birthday. Lisa bought this panel (and coordinating backing) and I machine quilted it, going around the animals.
These are blocks I started at quilt camp in early March. They are distorted from the camera angle and the brown carpet does nothing for them! I haven't touched them since, I have some of the arcs pieced.
I did a bit of stash enhancement at the quilt show today, buying some Kaffe fabrics and found a grouping of bright fabrics that I REALLY wanted, but I need to plan a quilt and then drive to that shop. I came home with lots of inspiration from the show!
