Top finished and win!


I have to share the Clover & Violet Embroidery 101 QAL quilt top.  It is finished! Not finished enough to count in my stash report, not until it is bound.

I was very tempted to let these blocks languish until more pressing projects were done.  However, we started this QAL in May and it just seemed appropo to make the deadline and join my fellow QAL'ers.  It was only 9 blocks, the sashing, cornerstones, and borders were a cinch to cut and I pinned while I watched TV Monday night after a long day of "going, going, going."

At our guild meeting last night I volunteered to be secretary next year.  Then I won the BOM exchange blocks - 5 "Union" blocks (mine makes 5)! 

Charma? Maybe. Aren't they pretty?  

They join these Ohio Stars that I won months ago for a grand total of 10 twelve inch Civil War blocks (won 8, made 2).

Oh - and our guild president is a H-U-G-E Cardinals fan. 

Honestly, she sent out an email last week and before opening it I was convinced that she probably wanted to move our meeting b/c there a conflict with the World Series  --LOL!!  For volunteering to fill the empty positions she gave us all a rally towel, pictured above.

Have a great hump day!
