2016 in Review

The highlights of 2016

I was asked by my friend, Kim to do a presentation at Mt Bachelor's Quilters Guild 
and was honored to do so. I LOVE sharing my quilts and would love to do a 
presentation for your quilt guild too.

Finished Stars in a Time Warp top- it's still a top but have plans for it.


Took a class with friend and popular author, Sujata. 

Was able to attend Houston Quilt Fest and meet this wonderful lady, Debbie, who was also my roommate.
Right on the heels of Houston I got to go to Peru on a missions trip and hand deliver little dresses to lovely little girls.  (I'll be taking more to Columbia in early 2018)

With 4 other blogger we collaborated on a Gwennie Inspired medallion quilt along, which I deem to be sucessful. We also talked about trying to make a small exhibit to share at quilt shows or other avenues, so if you have ideas about this, please let me know. (Must get mine quilted! pronto!)
Had another successful small quilt swap. (will do this again this spring, so feel free to start making a quilt)
Elsa, who was hurt and left to fend for herself, came to live with us. 


I hosted another quiltalong- "Quilters Matter" and love the quilts I've seen!

And, you have all been a big part of my quilting year and projects! Thanks for all your encouragement, participation and kind words!
