Scrap Happy Sampler Progress

In March I started a monthly sampler class at Blue Bar Quilts (The Scrap Happy Sampler).  It's been a lot of fun and we are nearing the end.  Somehow my monthly blocks haven't made it into my blog posts much (I'm usually scrambling to keep up each month...).  Here are my latest 2, the Lonestar and New York Beauty:

Prior to completing those, I put all of the blocks up on the design wall:

I can't wait to get this into a top. It is turning out great! The borders are up next and they are ...different.  It will be fun!


Lutherdale Auction 2018

I have quite a bit of catching up to do-- there isn't enough time to blog about all of my quilty adventures during the summer and now the fall has gotten away from me!!!  I've had a very busy late summer/fall this year and I was able to squeeze in bits of sewing here and there, but the blogging side of things took a back seat.

Where to start? In Mid-August, I attended the annual Lutherdale Quilt Auction.  I contributed many quilts and it was fun to see the bidding.  Somehow I ended up coming home with a vintage quilt!! =O  But in even bigger news.... I won a viewer's choice award for my Peacock quilt!!! What?  That was a big surprise!  Here are a few photos of quilts I donated or contributed.  I forget the total dollar amount raised by my quilts this year, but it was a lot!!!
