Today was busy. I finally managed to get my hair cut. Took me three days to track my friend down. I really like the way she cuts my hair. You have to be careful, if you tell her to cut it short, you end up looking like a peeled onion. Oh well, it will grow.

I spent several hours at the local quilt shop. The owner was really busy, so I stayed long enough to put a few bolts of fabric away. We were going to discuss what I had seen at the recent shop hop, but the door just kept opening and she kept cutting fabric. That's a good thing. She is our only "quilt store". You can't really count Joanne's as a quilt store. Especially ours, it's so full of flowers, scrapbooking stuff, and home decor. So I guess I'll try again on Monday.

The picture of the quilt is the one I finished for my daughter. I bought the fabric on the way home from taking her to college her first year. That was September 2007. I just got it back from my longarm quilter September 2008. On a recent trip to Columbus, I took it with me so she could put it on her bed in her apartment. I was met with "That's not the one I want". So now it sits very nicely on her bed here at home. Now I get to make the one she really wants. It's called Exclamation. Then there's the lap quilt made from Moda's S'mores collection that she would like to have for her couch. Hope I can get all this done soon.
I spent the evening making huge pillowcase style sheets for the church nursery. I just finished those and will deliver them tomorrow.

Hi Joyce! Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. To answer your question, all of the quilts are mine! My friend, who has a longarm, only does quilts for friends and the occasional customer. She also works full time!

Hi Joyce! Thanks for your comment about my pincushion! I'm sure I'll have quite a collection one day but for now this is the first handmade one. Your quilt is beautiful! So bright and cheerful! :0)

Hello Joyce, you have a no-reply on your comments. I got the pattern from the book "Easy does it for friends" by Nancy Halvorsen.
