Another Whisper Challenge quilt finished

But of course I can't show it.  Not my favorite but not my least favorite quilt either.  Check back in July after we share all our quilts.

I don't have anything else finished but what I do have to share ...  I finally won a blog contest from Quilted Squid.  I won a signed bag from Eleanor Burns and a cute fat quarter of fabric.
Took Sue Rasmussen's machine quilting class (sponsored by the Common Threads Quilt Guild) on Saturday.  Just her lesson on needles was worth the cost of the class.  She helped me perfect my stitches.  Since she is a judge at quilt shows, I will take her word that my machine quilting stitches are too big.  She also gave me some great ideas for the background quilting of the Vintage Moments quilt which I WILL START QUILTING ON THIS WEEK!  She also spoke at our guild on Thursday night and she was very impressive.  And funny.  Here's a picture of her during her lecture.
I also finished my green and white quilt top.  Need to figure out a good backing fabric for it.  I'm sure I'll piece it but since it's a lot of white on the front, I'm afraid to use a dark backing fabric and I had a lot of greens left over so I have to figure something else out.

I still have to work on FMQ Challenge with Sew Cal Gal (see link on right).  It's a feather design and the teacher this month is Diane Gaudynski.  She does feathers a little different than what I normally do so this should be fun.

Thanks for looking.
