Yes it was. This was my first quilt entry. I’ve done lots of counted cross stitch pieces I ‘ve entered and received many ribbons including Best of Show, advanced division. Both were eligible for the state fair, but I didn’t want to ship them.

I don't blame you!
Today I’m going to see if I can get some time in the sewing room. Health problems have kept me from workin all week. I need to get a charity quilt bound to take to Guild meeting on Tuesday. Also hope to finish cutting fabric for more charity quilts.
What I did this long weekend. I've become intriged with black & white, finding quilt layouts I can use just the B&W novelties combined with TOT brights for the color. I've got 6 so far, all using 4.5" squares. One I finished last week, the others I decided to put together kits. I spent much of the weekend going through the black and white baskets and precutting 3 or 4 of each, or if there isn't much left cutting up all the piece. I ended up with a large pile of each, about 6" tall - that will last me a while. I then went through my scrap basket for the brights - yikes that was a mess. But now I have 4 complete kits - the 5th one will need some special cutting so I will do that one later. And yesterday evening I started sewing.
selecting squares for kit - this one will use a 3D square in each alternate corner - see the purple diamond in the 2nd row.
And here's the one I started sewing last night - lots of HST to trim but it's going to be a very happy quilt.
You have so much energy that you astonish me with your output.
Love the "Happy Quilt" name for the third photo.
"energy" or avoiding doing what I should be. It really is very much like a jigsaw puzzle, oh let's just do a "little bit" more. It all started by flipping through my scrapbook and putting post it flags on the ones I thought would work for B&W. Well then I need to draw them out on EQ. And then I decided to precut a bunch (after having used up most of the stash I had previously). And then let's make kits. and and and... and now the entire weekend is done and all I did was sew. Eh, vacuming can wait.
Dee, love all of your I Spy quilts. Glad you could spend your weekend relaxing in your sewing studio.
If you get a roomba most of the vacuuming can do itself and you save wear and tear on your back.
Wow! These quilts are wonderful!
After I finished DGS book quilt I wasn't sure what quilt project I was going to start. I was putting things away in my sewing room when "that little voice" yelled you have to get that string quilt done now. So I pulled out the string blocks, thinking about doing something fancy but decided to keep it simple. I finished it and took it to my mom's this past weekend so I could get a picture of her with it, left it for her to give to my sister. Now all of my siblings have a lap quilt with string blocks made by my mom between 2014 and 2017. There is still enough blocks to make a quilt for myself, but I will need to resew some of them.
