Secret Project Revealed and Catching Up

It's been awhile since I posted! Well I told ya'll about a secret project I was working on. It was a quilt for my daughter's graduation. She was so surprised!

It's a quilt made out of her t-shirts and blue jeans! All of those t-shirts have a special story attached to them. This was so hard to keep secret because it was so big and she always seemed to be home!

The weekend after graduation my quilt guild had their 2nd annual quilt show. I entered the t-shirt quilt and 2 others.

The wallhanging was my first attempt at hand quilting. It has lots of problems, but I'm pleased with it. The last quilt was from my first quilt class. It was like my 3rd finished quilt, but I pieced the top before I did any other projects.

This is what I bought at our quilt show from a few vendors. I was so excited when I opened the jelly roll! It was full of bluebonnet fabric! I'm a Texan living in Oklahoma and have missed the bluebonnets!

Well I have more to tell you, but I'll save that for another day!
