Friday Finishes

We are having a heat wave, its 27 degrees and the sun feels so warm.  I have been hearing the snow slide off the roof as I sit here typing.  I almost think I can hear the trees' relief as the snow and ice melts off  as the branches.  It will be interesting to see what happens to many of the large pine trees that have branches touching the ground.  Will the branches bounce back?
This lovely woven quilt is my finish for the week.
It is quilted with the Drop of Paisley pattern by Anne  The thread is Mulberry by Omini.
Below is my computer screen showing the pattern. 
This will be Cathy B's entry into our Covered Bridge Quilt Guild's Bi-Annual Show on March 21-22, 2015.  It will be held at the Bureau County Fairgrounds in Princeton, IL.
Today I have been working on printing pictures and completing entry forms for my own quilts for the show.  Tonight at quilt guild we have to turn in our entries.  So my goal is to finish seven (7) quilts.  All the quilts are made, but six of seven still need to be quilted.  I also have four customer quilts to finish quilting.  One is loaded on my machine and the other three will be dropped off to me tonight.
I also completed an entry into a juried show today.  This is only the second time I have had the courage to enter a juried show.  I am praying the quilt gets accepted.  I will be notified by Feb. 13th.
Yours in quilting,


  1. My you are busy! I like the quilting on the quilt but don't see it on the computer screen. That is over my head I guess! Good luck with your entries.
    PS The pines will bounce back!

  2. Hi Terry, beautiful quilting. All the best, and praying with you, on getting accepted on your juried entry. I'm excited to be attending my local quilt guild's (St. Andrew Bay Quilters' Guild) show on Friday--will be a first for me! Happy quilting and stay warm! :)
