The borders have been sewn on this one.  I just need to give it a final pressing, along with its backing and it will be ready to load and quilt.

Here is the start for the layout of this one.

Last night (early this morning LOL) I got lots of strips cut from fat quarters I've been collecting for a while.  These will go into several projects brewing in my mind.

And just because I love you, here are a couple of pictures from Quilt Festival.

This is titled "Artist Village", a cooperative where Kathy York invited artists who have inspired her to create 3-D houses to symbolize the support each gives to the other in the creation of their art.

And along those line, may I just say that you ALL inspire me.  Each and every time you post what you are creating on your blog, it inspires and engergizes me.  That is one of many lovely  things about blogging.  Thank you for being part of my world!

Hugs and kisses,

Back at you, Elaine, you inspire me. In fact, what a great use for a drying rack!
