Angel in Heaven

Cali has gone to  heaven, hope the trip was safe for her, and that she is running around and having a great time!!! 

Angles in the sky!!!









this is Francoise quilt, calling it "Angles in the sky"
I have to name the quilts so that they can talk to me and me to them!!
I am free handing, with Cairo-Quilt from Fil Tec color cream and in the green I will use a green thread from them also.  There is a 20/80 HOBBS  batting so that will make the stars stand out, micro stippling in there so it makes that effect!!

Holland, I am going!!! "Laugh at the sky" was accepted!!!

I am really excited, my first contemporary quilt that I designed, and made and quilted has been accepted in the OEQC show in Holland, The show starts the first week of May, so I will be going!!!   I am so excited,   did the happy dance around the house two or three times and today I put the binding on, of course the quilt  was blocked first, now to do the label and sleeve, then put the embellishments on. 
I can't believe this is happening, just the thought of " it was accepted" is my biggest dream, now it will be up to the judges...
No pictures for now, once it has been judged I will post a picture of ME in the front of My QUILT in the OEQC show!!!!!
