The Embroidery Group made postcards.  The ones with Berninas learned how to change it.  But I have a Brother and my computer program doesn't work like theirs.  So I just made the postcard as is.

 Our sewing group decided to do a challenge this year.  We are to alter a fabric panel.  Reveal will be in December.  This is my practice piece.

I cut 2 7/8" strips vertically and staggered each by 1 1/2" and sewed them together  Then cut horizontally, staggered them 1" and sewed them back together.

I think my real one will be a Christmas panel.


Went to the Kaw Valley Quilt Show on Sunday after the Shop Hop was over on Saturday.

It was at Crown Toyota in Lawrence and what a great large space for the show, lots of room for hanging quilts and setting up vendors.  Fortunately, the snow didn't amount to enough to keep viewers away on Sunday.

Front right is Jane Anderson's quilt from my pattern.  I designed it, Anna Aldman digitized it, Jan Hutchison quilted it and Jane Anderson embroidered and made it. I guess you could say it takes a community.   Vernice Flotman's quilt based in my light house pattern, was there too.  She's giving it to her grandson, who is graduating from school in California to become a ship captain.
