Hard to Believe

Last night I had the pictures ready and logged in to post a blog. And Blogger was down! Can you believe it? So here's what would have been yesterday's post!

Traci L. made this beauty in a Monthly Bliss 2 series at O'Susannah's in Watkins Glen. The blocks were hand-pieced, the top set by machine; long arm quilting by Laurie Derr of Elmira Heights.

A close-up of some of the blocks. Check out those points! Love the colors--so fresh looking. Great job, Traci!

Sue Y., whose work you've seen in previous posts, brought her finished Baltimore in 3D wallhanging to share. Check out the quilting! It's so exciting to see completed tops...and even more exciting to see finished pieces. Did I mention it's exciting for people to share their quilts at any stage? Sue's fabric choices are almost always on the bold, dramatic side.

I'm so proud of both these ladies!

It's been a week of painting (still my parents' house), mowing and raking my lawn (read "hay field--should have just baled it!), horsing around, and some classes and a bit of quilting and some planning for future quilts. Next up will be a couple posts to catch you up on all the doings. Stay tuned!



P.S. I am listening to Port Mortuary by Patricia Cornwell. And reading...wait for it...a horse book.
