I'm Back!

The last two months have not been the most fun of my life.  I've been quite ill with a colon infection that just won't seem to go away.  I'm in the middle of my 4th round of antibiotics (3 of those were 14 day regimins).  I'm so tired of taking pills around the clock.  But enough of that.....

On the days that I was not too weak to pick up a needle, I managed to finish my hand applique project.  I had made out a schedule back in December that I had to stick to in order to get it done in time to have it quilted and entered in my Green Country Quilters Guild "Quilt Tulsa" in early June.  (see:  http://www.greencountryquiltersguild.com/)   

This is what my cutting table looked like at one point:


These are the one inch (finished) squares that make up the sashing.  (note the beautiful red sciccors my bff gave me for my birthday last fall)

 And since my design wall is full of all kinds of stuff (mostly UFO's) I hung the sections of the quilt top on the closet curtain.

Before I forget it--this is a Kim McLean design.  I didn't care for the top and bottom border of her pattern so I designed my own using some of her flowers.  I also "tweeked" the side borders a bit.  So here it is in all it's "Glorious Color":


Not a great picture.  I took the top to my favorite quilter, Donna, a few days ago.  I can hardly wait to see what she does with it.  (thank you oldest daughter and son-in-law for holding it up while I took the pictures)


 I had a few (well, maybe a lot) of one inch squares left over from the sashing.  I plan to make them into something for our guild's Small Quilt Auction at the show.  So stay tuned.
