Batik Fish quilt top and raffle quilt preview

In case you think I don’t do anything quilty anymore, I do, and today I thought I’d show you a little of what I’ve been up to this week.

Earlier this summer, I took a class from a local teacher who taught a class titled “Drunkards Path Revisited”. Her sampler was really pretty, but, I had to change it for me a bit. So after class when I was making the final blocks, I decided to lay them out around a batik panel I’ve been wanting to work with for a while. And then I had to do something different for the border. With the help of Gayle McKay and Ronda Beyer, I had some instruction on scalloped borders. Having never done one before, I was a little stumped for a while. Yep, I’ve been quilting for 19 years now and had never before done a scalloped border! End result, a top I can’t wait to put on the machine and quilt! This one’s talking to me, big time!!!

Why don’t I load it today, well, I’m working on quilting Lincoln Quilters raffle quilt. A pretty Tennessee Waltz quilt in blues and reds. Here’s a tiny preview of what I’m putting on this beauty

Sorry, you’ll have to click on the link. My photo software program isn’t playing nicely since I transferred it to the new laptop and 20 minutes is all the time I have this morning to get it the right size to upload as a clickable thumbnail. I probably need to sit down for a couple hours and figure out how to get it to do what it used to do on the old computer, before the programming was “upgraded”.
