A good day.....


......Is when (or so I hope) the last white thread tail is tied off the Guild's raffle Q.

Another sneak peak below. Once it's returned to the committee and the binding and sleeve are attached, a full picture will be posted. If you are interested in buying a ticket, I can direct you how to take a chance, when the info is made available.


Guild members (not me) pieced the blocks and a talented crew of women hand appliqued the panels and assembled the top. Precision is the name of their game.

The quilting shows better on the back, which was my intent. The top is so lovely that detailed quilt work would distract from the piecing precision. The back becomes a whole cloth with the light blue backing fabric. Two quilts for the price of a buck/ ticket.....



And to top off yesterday's good day.... a purchase arrived. These hand dyes were purchased from Vicki's Etsy shop. They are gorgeous. The photo does not show the true color, but they are vibrant and wonderful and came packaged so professionally.

I've finally made it to you and now I'm caught up.

I love the idea of using the dryer sheets for the flowers on your blue project and mixing aloe gel with the paint is genius!!

Also thanks for the heads up on the Fons and Porter marking pencil. I've bought so many to try and often they are terrible but with your recommendation, I will give this one a try!!
