I'm plugging away at stitching the borders on Colorwaves - I finally settled on cross stitches with white stranded floss. I don't know what I was thinking when I thought I'd get these done in an evening or two - I've done multiple stitching sessions and am only halfway through. Now my goal is to be done by the end of the month as I'm working on a few other things in between to break up the monotony of the rows of white. Borders aren't my favorite thing to stitch!
I entered three quilts and was thrilled to get a ribbon on two of them, especially as one of them was a "Judge's Choice" ribbon - there were five awarded and mine was for "Scrap Quilt" and the abundance of fabrics! I was thrilled when I walked around the corner and saw the different colored ribbon! Whether it's quilting or stitching, I like lots and lots of color and pattern!
I started this quilt several years ago and finally finished it this year - it combines two of my favorite quilt blocks - stars and log cabins. I'll be really happy to put this out for Christmas this year!
Here's one of my favorite quilts from the show - I loved the variety of the orange fabrics and it was a really happy quilt!
Thrilled to have the taxes done and in the mail! I'm spending the afternoon stitching and quilting to celebrate!
