Wow I Can't belive its almost the end of April.

Boy does time fly.. even when your not having fun. Keith is still deployed though there does seem to be a light at the end of the tunnel there. Things at Quilter's Quarters are going well. I'm still plugging along. We have gone to 2 Quilt shows since I last posted and are preparing for our Heart of the Valley Shop Hop so we have been really busy. As those of you that have done shop hops know each shop has their own block and then puts together their own version of what the completed quilt should look like. Here is a peek at our quilt.

The staff at the shop put most of the squares together, I did a couple and then I assembled the top with the advice of Linda the shop owner. She told me what she wanted it to look like and I got to work. We were pretty happy with the out come.

I have done a couple other shop samples but looking at my pictures it looks as if I haven't taken pictures of them so I will have to do that this week so that I can get back into posting. I have quite a few things that I plan on getting done before Keith gets home still and mom is here helping me. This weekend I tried to cut some kits that I had so that I could just sew through out the week but that was unsucessful.. I miss cut some things and had to search the internet for replacement fabric. Luckily I was able to replace the panel and the 1/2 yard that I miss cut. What the cutting table looked like after some not so nice words.

Tomorrow will be spent working on things in the shop for our Mothers day sale coming up and then hopefully I will have some time to sew or embroider. Well I am off to bed its late and I open at the store tomorrow.

Until Later ,

Love this quilt design and the black & white with the red that makes it all pop - smashing.
