Here is the quilt I wanna put in:
I did this quilt for my husbands Mom...they want to put a quilt block on their shed behind their house...I think they are called Barn Quilts.  So, I did several blocks that they might want to choose from...when I send it to them I plan to put a blurb on each quilt block the most visible is the Saw Toothed Star...not to be confused with the Sawed Tooth Star : D.

In the are my hand pieced blocks - still need to sew them together, but this is how it is gonna look.
Another thing that for some reason just makes me happy is thread!  I recently bought these from Superior Thread it is everything from King Tut to Rainbows to Kimono Silk - that project scares and excites me immensely - more on that later it is a satin front with hand crocheted doiles on the front and dupioni silk on the back - yikes!  However, if having a quilt to load is happiness...having new thread is pure joy!

I love your quilting, and wish I had that kind of talent. I have always wanted to try to quilt on a long arm, but am afraid that all I would end up with is a big mess.
