This week I’m starting on a challenge that is through one of my Quilt Guilds. Their challenge is to choose an envelope that had two crayons (I did not know what colors I was choosing). Create a quilt using these two colors and add up to four more colors.
I received BLUE and BLUE/GREEN.
I came up with drawing rings on white fabric, add designs in the rings, painting the fabric with the colors.
And the following photos are my process thus far. Quilting will begin tomorrow. It’s due December 4 at our Christmas party.
Enjoy the photos!
Finally finished INCLUSION!!! The finished size is 51″w x 40″ h. I also just entered it into the Daytona Beach, Lancaster, and Paducah AQS Quilt Shows. It has to be juried in first.
Please tell me what you think! I’ll keep you posted as to the results of the applications!

I started this about 2 years ago for another competition which had the word converge as it’s theme. Well, life happened and prevented me from completing it on time.
When I saw the verb definition of converge, it said something to the effect of…two or more people coming together for a common good. That lead me to think of the world today and how there’s so much negativity towards another human due to the color of their skin, beliefs, or abilities. God made all of us in his image. I am only a part of his image as is every other human on this planet. (I choose God, you may say higher power, higher energy, etc.)
My point is that this world would be much more pleasant if we all accepted each other’s individualities.
This is not complete yet, and it will be completed by October 1. This will be entered into the AQS shows for 2020.

Have a Wonderful Day!
This weekend I’m in Canandaigua, NY. Just being outside listening to the creatures in the woods, feeling the sun and wind on my face, and enjoying everything else that comes with being outside is extremely relaxing for me.
Brought my next project to paint. It was so peaceful to be outside painting.
Two projects just about finished and I’ll be moving onto other projects!!
My PAPA’S DOOR has been accepted in AQS Grand Rapids, Fall Paducah, and Des Moines shows for this year! These are all international quilt shows and only 272 quilts have been accepted as semi-finalists. This is the first time I am showing at a national competition of any kind! I’m so excited to see comments of the judges.
This quilt is my first quilt that is one piece of white fabric and totally painted first then quilted.
If you go to see any of these AQS shows, please look for Papa’s Door and tell me how you like it!!
Have a wonderful day!!
My son has his prom next week. His girlfriend is wearing a black satin gown with a black satin belt and a rhinestone bow in the front.
Last Thursday night, he came down with his then black satin bow tie from his tuxedo and asked me to bead it. So, I got my seed beads out and reluctantly began to hand stitch each bead on this tie.
It took me a total of 7 hours of beading and I have no idea how many beads I sewed on. It turned out pretty good I think! Now, I’m wondering if there is a market for these kinds of ties!
Please tell me if there’s a market for these ties!! Thank you!!
