Quiltcam and Soaring to New Heights!!

I was checking Facebook and saw where Bonnie was doing an impromptu Quiltcam this afternoon.  I was in the process of pressing and trimming my 80 step four triangle in a square blocks. I am now caught up until Friday!!  Check out all the progress Link-ups to the En Provence Mystery here.

I received some very good news on Friday.  My friend, Colleen Eskridge and I collaborated on an entry for the New Quilts from an Old Favorite Flying Geese Contest for 2017.  I pieced the top and Colleen quilted it.  We call it "Soaring to New Heights".

We won the Third Place ribbon.  The 18 quilts that were accepted for the contest will be on display at the National Quilt Museum in Paducah, Kentucky from March 31 thru June 20, 2017.  Then they will be in a traveling exhibit for several months.

Each year for the past 24 years, I have made Christmas ornaments for my children and grandchildren.  Since they are getting older, (we can't blame ME for getting older!!) I only made ornaments for the grands this year.

Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas!  Hope to have more to post next week.  Until then...
