Yesterday I had the fun experience of attending Quilt Fever 2009, the show of a local guild. So much eye candy!!! Here's some of the Hoffman Challenge quilts that were on display.
But, the most fun exhibit had to be the bras. This is a traveling collection, made by artists. All funds raised are given to breast cancer organizations. The one below is covered in dominoes, and was accompanied with advice that, just like a row of dominoes, everything eventually falls!

A friend asked if I had fabric I could donate for pillowcases for a charity. I said sure, and that started it all. Suddenly I had everything, and I do mean everything, out of my sewing room closet. While going through long-abandoned stash, I found this quilt all completed, still with it's left-over scraps, in a box. I made it right before we moved to this house 6 years ago! I think my little 9-month-old granddaughter will enjoy playing on it. In the process of the 'big clean out' I have a box for our sewing ministry at church, and also a box for my 9-year-old granddaughter for her sewing.

This is my stack of Step 3. First strips sets all sewn and cross cut.
And here's one Step 4 block that I just had to jump ahead and put together.

Here are my Step 1 blocks, all trimmed.
And here are some Step 2 blocks, all trimmed.
Here's one of my first 'strings'. It feels like I'm making tiny siggies for a DJ siggie swap:)
