So here is the top I'm calling 
"Under the Big Top" I'm thrilled as all heck about it although I think I am adding a border later
Several ladies, including myself, swapped 3 sizes of hst for 9 months starting in 2010.  You know what I say- good things can't be rushed! I love it!


Tonight we went into Bend and enjoyed the music of Pink Martini. It was nice to get away from the machines, relax and laugh a bit. 


Quilt show tomorrow!

  16. I have admired this quilt top since you first posted parts of it on your blog. I had forgotten that you traded triangle units. Are you thinking of adding a pieced border or a plain border?

  22. OMG!!!! I had not seen your quilt shop !!!You should not make deals ! Your quilts are lovely and if there is any way you can take them to a shop or to a craft fare to sell , it is what I would do with so many gorgeous quilts !!! If I had money I would buy as many as I could. WE just began a new job a month ago after being unemployed for a yr ..so we need to catch up.. Those quilts look valuable, you must take them elsewhere or advertise in a different place perhaps ??? Even Facebook ? Thanks, Izzy
