Whew, finally got the contest quilt off the machine.  Now the clean up on the back.  Had to use a white batting even though the BG is black.  It was showing through on the white areas.  Binding, sleeve and photo are the next steps.  The deadline is the 12th.  So I must get a move on.

Can you believe this is August in Kansas.  We are being spoiled with these temps!

Whew, it's finally on the quilting machine!  This is my entry in a contest and I was beginning to believe I wouldn't make the September 12th deadline.

Now all I have to do is quilt it....which will take some time, bind, add a sleeve, make a label and photograph.

I'm once again reminded how much lint and threads black backgrounds collects.  I'm delinting it as I go along right now.  And I'll have to redo it several times more before it's completed.

The Kaw Valley Quilt Guild donates 100 doll quilts to the Salvation Army each Christmas time.  Here is mine, hopefully the first of several.
