Ribbons... aka Quilt Bling and some news!!!



I was so happy to receive my "Serenity" quilt back in perfect condition (I have been a little paranoid about quilts since the fiasco with my last quilt) - by the way, thanks for all the helps and tidbits on how to fix my quilt - I will let you know which method I chose when I get to fixing it.

Ribbons - Aren't these fun? I want to submit my quilt into more shows - but I am not sure which shows I should enter - any suggestions would be great! I already know what my next show quilt will be (it's designed in my head), but it's going to be a long time before I can get to that.

Anyway - news, I am sorry for the overload of older quilts and the lack of new quilting pictures in my past posts, but I have been working like crazy on a project! A BOOK, if you can believe it! I am knee deep in piecing and quilting, but I can't show you anything and I can't give you any more details than that. So, forgive me in advance for not being able to post what I am working on.

PS -- We just got some Riley Blake precuts in - so check them out here.

Congrats on your upcoming book, Judi! Can you tell us who is the publisher? This is wonderful news!

Have you thought about entering your quilts in one of the American Quilt Society shows? They are listed one their website. Then there is the International Quilt Festival in Houston each year!

Congratulations on your ribbons! What a tribute to your talents. The book sounds exciting - let us know how it's coming. Also, have a question - what type of batting do you use to get that wonderful look! Sure would like to know. I'm Still a novice at machine quilting on my standard Pfaff 2170. How abouta few tutorials if you have time. That would be special.
