Off to the Museum

Well it is done and off to the museum, and I am so glad. This was really a tough quilt to do, as all that could go wrong did go wrong. But here it is:

I have several new projects to work on, one is a Chocolate Art Quilt for a group I belong to on Connecting Threads. It is such a lively group, full of funny women who really care about everyone else. I also have a Postcard Swap on the same web site, just a different group. Such fun, it is about spring, which is something I am truely looking forward to.

The Quilt is coming together

Well here is part of the Butterfly quilt I am making for the contest, mind you I will not be showing the entire quilt until after it is shown at the Museum.
Today I have been doing a lot of applique, which is what is known as rawedge applique, on this quiult. Some people preger to needle turn, others use pressing, I chose due to the size of this project to just do the raw edges. Now once all have been appliqued, it will be time to thread paint, you will see a preview, then the quilting will begin.
This has to be to the Musuem next week, so will be working on it for a few days.
