Finished Quilt

I was suppose to show these pictures last week but the next thing I know it's Sunday afternoon. Yikes, time flies when you are having fun. The is Heidi's quilt that I finished last week. I'm disappointed in this picture because you can't see the quilting but it certainly shows off this wonderful quilt.
Here's the back of it. And, you can't see the quilting on this photo either.
So how about this close up? You can see some of the freehand quilting and some of the "l"s and "e"s.
I've finished the blocks for the Small Quilt Talk yahoo group signature swap. Then I made 4 of 5 blocks for a challenge for the same group. I think this little quilt will be my donation quilt for the upcoming Faithful Circle Quilters' show. We always have a silent auction to raise funds for education. (Read that as guest speakers and teachers.)

Now I'm getting ready to go to MQX -- Machine Quilters Expo. Gail and I are meeting up there and are going together. We've got several classes planned, some hot shopping to do and lots of quilts to view. I'll try to send some reports from up in Providence also. I plan to leave early on Tuesday morning. (Early being sometime after 9 am...)

Time to get some hand applique organized to go with me. (And, watching an old Doris Day - Cary Grant movie -- A Touch of Mink.

Back to work now. Happy Sewing All! I know I'm going to miss actually sewing this week but I'm sure I'll be having a great time so it won't be too bad!
