Loose Threads - Design Board Challenge Quilts - Round 4

Tonight was Loose Threads.  Our group keeps getting smaller and smaller due to people moving and such.  However, those of us who are left, met tonight with a guest and previous member, Deolinda Rhoads.  It was great to see her again.

I had Adena Joseph's board and on it she had an apple core, with a swatch of solid green and some green frond leaves.  However, my creative side of the brain was over loaded and I ended up doing something a bit traditional.
It is a Lori Holt's pattern.

Karen Taber couldn't make it but she did email a picture of her almost finished project.  She had Barbara Sawyers board.

Barbara Sawyer inspired by Grace Hoya's board.

Adena's Shockra quilt inspired by Sara Kelly's Board

And Grace Hoya inspired by one of the stained glass pieces on my board.
Thanks for looking.

Been busy.  Got some more guild boutique items made.  Here are the latest.

I need to tag all the items because I have to deliver them to the boutique chair person on Tuesday since I won't be around on the day they are due.  

I also am caught up on all my block of the month/weeks.

These are the Marcus Brothers block of the weeks (weeks 5, 6 & 7).

Fat Quarter Shops Block of the Month.
Pat Sloan's Globetrotting Block of the Month.

Also, finished my Loose Threads quilt based on Adena's board.  More on that when I have all the pictures from our exchange this coming Tuesday.  

This past week was the Tulare County Fair.  This year only 27 quilts were entered so my chances of getting a ribbon were pretty good.  And I did, I got 2 blue ribbons and a red ribbon.  So excited about that.  I entered my Halloween Solstice Quilt, my Best of the Valley Challenge and the Fat Quarter Shops 2013 Block of the Month quilt.

I leave in less than one week on a grand adventure to New England with 3 of my quilting buddies.  We plan on going to the New England Quilt Museum, Boston Art Museum, Harbor cruise, Maine for Lobster, Freedom Trail in Boston, Newport Mansions, Norman Rockwell Museum and more.  And of course, there will be some quilt store stops along the way.  

Well, I'm off to tag my boutique stuff.  

Thanks for looking.
