Hard to believe but I won!

I know this will be hard for people who know me to believe but I won a prize for explaining to Michelle how to link from her blog to another blog! Why is this so amazing? Because I'm the kind of person who can't remember how to get her cell phone messages even though my husband explains it over and over! My technology ineptness is so bad that my family's been threatening to get me a Jitterbug cell phone. "No complicated menus or confusing icons!"

Thank you, Michelle, for the beautiful fabric, fun pattern and the Godiva Chocolate bar! Feel free to link to my blog anytime!



I thought I would be back to working on string projects by now but instead I've been motivated to finish some of my Jo Morton projects. You saw my "finished" Country Lanes little quilt top on Monday. Yesterday and today I've been working on one of last year's Jo's Little Women projects which I participated in through Liberty Quilt Shop.

This is the Holiday Inn wallhanging which still needs 2 more borders! The next one is Flying Geese. I worked on the applique block while my son was in the hospital last year and then I put it away because it wasn't possible for me to work on it any longer. It hasn't been difficult but those half square triangles were time consuming! I really dislike trimming and squaring up which there was a little of to do! Just to give you an idea on the size of the blocks, the half square triangles are one inch finished.

When this project is done, I will need to prepare my crazy quilt for a quilt show coming up in Wichita. I've done some embroidery on the backing and definitely need to finish it up since I think the quilt judge might find it hard to overlook that!

  2. Yea for you Maylene! I love the holiday inn wall hanging. Your projects are beautiful. Wouldn't it be great if they could just hold a quilt top only show no finishing required! I would have a lot of entries, LOL! Enjoy your day! Cyndi

  6. What a beautiful quilt. The colours and design, I love it. I like your previous post about your son, the "quilt designer". It is a great story to go with the quilt.
