ArtOMatic opens

ArtOMatic Frederick ( opens on Saturday. My quilts will be there, but I won't. I will be in Pittsburgh doing my final oral exam for the Professional Coaching program. I find it somewhat ironic that these two things are happening at the same time. I have a lot of my future dreams tied up in both events.

I am also nervous about both events.... in a good way. I feel pretty good about the possibility of passing my exam... until I start to think too much, and then anxiety kicks in! I also hope that I get at least one new coaching or quilting client from the show.

Blue and White Stars

I have been collecting blue and white blocks for a while with the idea of making a quilt. I needed another quilt for my ArtOMatic exhibit and I have a space of 24" x 36". I put together some of the blocks I had, along with some purple and white ones, and I love how this quilt turned out!


Ray finished quilt

I finally finished Ray's quilt. His widow loved it and was very touched. It was one of my favorite quilts to make. Here's some pics of the final quilt.

I even used his shirts for the back:

When I was sorting and taking apart the washed ties, Rita got involved. She could resist rolling around and playing in them!
