WHOOMP There IT Is! Gossamer got Honorable Mention in the pictorial category at the Arizona Quilters Guild Quilt Show 2016!
Not too bad for my first ever show entry! Thank you Janeen for the wonderful pattern! AND thank you Sue for your thorough and patient instruction! You can read about the making of Gossamer here. Needless to say, I’m ecstatic!
And in other news…
Last week’s craft sale was pretty much a bust. There wasn’t much traffic at all. I sold 3 bibs all day. We were out there from 8a – 1p. I came home and listed everything in My Etsy Shop.
Besides the bibs, I’d made several belly bands for small dogs. I decided to give my bands a name; Mr. PeePotty. I’ve always heard that baby and dog items sell the best. I sure hope it’s true!
I did manage to get another spiderweb block finished. I’m starting to see webs form!
I had a minor mishap though. On one section I cut off the web strings instead of my guide. It was an easy fix, but I did want to cry when it happened.
There are several patterns/tutorials for the spiderweb quilt. I chose to go w/ this tutorial because I found it the simplest. The blocks measure 11.5″, so I figure to have a decent size lap quilt I need 42 blocks (6 across, 7 down), which means my 1st block will definitely be in this quilt!
This scrappy Jelly Roll Race quilt is basted and I’m hoping to finish it this weekend to get it sent off on Monday. Then I’ll get started on my next commission for 2 baby quilts w/custom labels.
And lastly, for the past few years I’ve volunteered at the AQG Quilt Show. If I’ve had a name tag, it’s been a sticker but this year I have a real badge! Thanks Sue!
If you are local or just visiting this weekend, come see the 300+ quilts made by amazing Arizona quilters! I hope I see you there!
And one more pic of me & Gossamer for good measure. =)
Now it’s your turn to show us what you’ve been up to.
