My Week in Fast forward

Where does the time go? It seems like this week has just whizzed by. Thursday was quilt guild, & we had demos done by some of the gals that went to the AQS show in Idaho recently to share what they learned. I have built a separate blog for the ALCQ, as this year's webmaster. I am having a hard time following Winnie's lead, the gal who built our original web page. She used html, & even though I am vaguely familiar with it from messing with my blog template, I have no idea how to even begin to get into the template on the web-page, to add & change it, so I've chosen to switch to blogging, making it easier to pass on the job in the future too. I just have to get Winnie to add a link to it for me.
Friday I met Cyndi Campbell at Seams Like Home to give her the quilt that I finished quilting for her. She had made such a beautiful top, I was nervous that she might not be happy with the results of my quilting, but she said she was thrilled with it.
She sent me a few pictures to share.
I didn't dare lay it out in my house to take full pictures, as Broccoli the cat would have taken that as an invitation to investigate. I didn't want gray Broccoli hairs all over her white quilt. I love the pattern of her lattice piecing.
When I quilted it, I did rows of small leaves on the colored strips only, so as not to detract from her beautiful piecing. If you click on the photo below you get a close up of the back.
My DDIL Laura sent this picture of DGD Carys, enjoying a slice of watermelon. I love how intent she looks here.

I just had a look at the blog Deb. It looks stuning in black and the white letters are easy to read. Well done there!

The quilt looks lovely, with great quilting!

Beautiful job with that lovely quilt. I'm always attracted to leaf motifs. Your GD is a cutie.

Nice idea to set up a guild blog, I don't know how you have the time to keep it up. Your quilting is wonderful and your granddaughter is sweet.
