The Slightly Bias Bee Christmas party was yesterday and I was able to give Cheryl Hutchins her quilt. The rules were to get 6 fat quarters from the person, no names revealed, and make that person a completed quilty item, your choice. I did chose to make this quilt and it did turn out fine. Joan, my friend allowed me to stand and watch while she quilted it on her long arm machine. Thanks to her it got completed.

I've also worked on finishing up swaps and on the log cabin for Emily. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel with that one. My daughter is going to let her use the quilt I made for her king size bed. The point is to give Emily some idea how big a quilt she wants. Orginally she wanted a quilt 110 by 130. Then I need to decide on what pattern to place the logs in.
I've made two backs for quilts plus the bindings. One is the project for the Slightly Bias group. Tomorrow I go out a a friend who is going to help me quilt it. She has a long arm machine. I've never worked on one of those before. Guess I can learn.
I have the row by row to do next for the Happy Scrappers group. Hopefully, after Christmas I can work on things like dear Jane. I've gotten totally stopped on that project.
Well enough for now. Hope I can get my own computer working soon.

I only bought about 3 yards total at the show, but we also stopped at Painted Pony and Quilts in LePorte coming home and I found some fabric I had to have there. My big purchase was my new cutting table from Tracey's table. It should arrive before Christmas. Now I have no excuse for not cleaning up my room.
I'm still tinkling about dates fro the retreat from IQA raffle. I should be getting in touch with them soon to try and set that up. I think my feet finally have touched the ground.

Do I have a story to tell. These are the friends I went to the Houston Quilt show with. There are, (from left to right) Sharie, Joan , myself and Angel. Angel had us go to the IQA Quiltapollussa Thrusday night. As Part of the program you could buy 3 raffle tickets for $5. Angel told us she didn't gamble but we should get these tickets. Well, there were 3 quilt retreats for prizes. One in Calf., one in Colorado and one in LaGrange, Tx. Since you have to get yourself there, we decided to put our tickets all in the one for LeGrange. Guess who won!!! Yes, me. The prize includes a weekend for 12 of us free. The details are fabulous and my friends and I are all so excited.

Last Sunday I got to cutting on the quilt for Andrew. Then it percolated in my brain all last week about exactly how I wanted to make this. The LQS had 3 complimentary fabrics to go with this line, Alphabet Zoo. I got all 3 and decided to use the green and blue to border the letters and will be using the white with letters for the border. I also have a panel which will be part of the back. Andrew's name at the bottom will be in blue and I'm not sure how I will be handling the last few letters. I think I'm over thinking this whole thing. All this thinking also spurred planning for other projects. I did decide how I want to make another quilt I need to do for Slightly Bias bee, which I will start soon. So, need to get off this computer and go sew...
