Updates!

Foto/Fiber 2012 was a success! More than $7,500 was raised! Congratulations to all who participated. I cannot wait to receive my photograph.  A non-fiber patron purchased photographs at the last minute and Virginia Spiegel asked me if I had a small piece of art I could send him as a BONUS. As I dug through my small quilts, I couldn't find anything that I thought appropriate for a guy so I made a small "pod" piece (approx. 7" by 7") because I loved my large "Pod" quilt so much (promise to share as soon as I get a good photo). I sure hope he likes it!

I continue to be blown away by the people who joined in on my vintage fabric challenge.  Be sure to check out both Sherrie Spangler's chocolate bunny quilt (great use of vintage fabric and makes me smile every time I think about it) and Vivian Helena's wonderful quilt. I love how she used black in her quilt. Wish I had thought of that!

Laissez les bons temps rouler! (Lots of thoughts of Louisiana and missing it today.) Let the good times roll!

  1. Karen, I have finished my 50s challenge fabric quilt and have posted a picture on my blog. I've named it "What Was I Thinking?" and the size is about 37" x 37". It is definitely fun to stretch and get out of one's comfort zone. I hope others are coming along with theirs.

  2. Just to let you know, I broke my arm last week so probably will not be finishing my piece anytime soon. Please post an updated link to my blog with progress so far in one of your next project updates. I'll let you know when this gets back on track. Thanks - this has been fun so far, Irene
