24 hours later

Last night Sew On Studio hosted the Quilts for Quake survivors bee.
So much fun.
So many awesome quilters.
So many completed quilts.
So many treats to eat.
So many new friends.

These quilts are all done!

These just need binding!

This is Irene, who came to the QfQ event with these beautiful blocks.
Irene, who is 85 years young used to live in Japan.

Today, I swept the studio floor, reorganized a bit and and marveled at
all the quilty goodness! Then I sat down and created this block for the
upcoming PMQG swap.

All in 24 hours.

How do you get Denyse Schmidt fabric for 50% off?

By now most of Quiltdom knows that Denyse Schmidt's collection Fabric Traditions can be found at Joanns Fabrics. The fabric retails for about $10 per yard. Also at Joann's, you will find this booklet selling for $2.99.

On the back cover are 8 coupons that can be used on regular priced fabric. Four are for 50% off a cut and the others are for 40% off. My 8 yards of fabric came to $44.00 instead of $80.00. Total score!

In other news my birthday quilt is done.....I did have a challenge with it though....originally I had a wide red voile border on the lap size quilt. Unfortunately, the voile got stretched during the quilting process as I did not stabilize it. After quilting, it was too wavy...what to do, what to do?

I cut off the border and now have a sweet baby quilt! Here's a picture of the back. I am totally loving the voile. (note to self- stabilize the borders)
