busy week ahead.

 I'm really getting on TOP of my work... hehe... I spy toes....
Borders are coming together on my signature quilt....

We went to the Hamptons designer Showhouse yesterday, 
Perhaps the walls inspired my new borders? Nope, I had mine in progress already...
I love, love, love this room and the walls...
I'm trying to find a wall in my house that I could do this too.


"This is a Quilt!"

One of my little quilts is touring in a SAQA show

This is SAQA’s second Trunk Show. Curated by Deb Cashatt and Kris Sazaki, it was designed to showcase SAQA’s diversity of talent and its mission to “promote the art quilt through education, exhibitions, professional development, and documentation.”
 Learn more about these quilts and how to bring a trunk show to your area.
Each quilt is framed in a 12" archival white mat (not shown) with an 8" opening.


Here's a whole mish mash of all my blocks to date for my BOM quilt from
 my 15minutesplay site. 
I left a few of the first blocks in the city, when I get them all together, 
I can get a proper picture of them all I think they will look fantastic together.  
I want to make all of these in the OPPOSITES as well, like we did on the churn dash block. 
Can you find the two?


I'm NYC bound tomorrow for a week.  
It's my 6 months check up on my blood work.
I'm really hoping I can wait another month or s,o before another 10 hour infusion.

Thank you to all my pals (Kim , Shelly, Jackie, Helen, etc.) who keep asking, 
"Did you go back to the doctor yet?"
I will finally be bale to answer them, "Yes!"
