I finally finished the Carolina Crossroads quilt designed by Bonnie Hunter at

This turned out so romantic and I am sorry I didn't take a picture of the back before I gave it to grand-daughter. (pictured below) Viki Kirby did a fantastic job on the quilting. Long arm quilters still fascinate me. They are truly talented in their own right.

We recently made a rush trip to IN. due to the death of one of my sister's-in-law. Fortunately we got there and back before all the bad weather hit up in that area. While there I got to attend for a day the mini quilt retreat at Miss Mary's with all my close quilt friends. Had just enough time with them to put together this little doll quilt from some scraps that another quilt friend had turned over to our group.

I wanted to add one more border to make it large enough for a baby quilt but I was out voted by the group. So doll quilt it will remain.

To the left is a pic of grand-daughter who is a sophomore at the University of Texas in Austin, TX and the recipient of the Carolina Crossroads. She was excited to get the quilt which always makes Gramma happy. She is such a beautiful girl, smart and sweet.

Our other grand-daughter who is 14 auditioned for and was accepted to the 2011 London Troupe from our Civic Theatre. She will be going with a group of 15 young people to London & Paris for 10 days the summer of 2011 to perform at various venues. What an awesome experience for her.

One more picture of a recent finish. Sorry I couldn't get it turned around. This was a block of the month project done by my SIL many years ago for the guild. Glad to get it finished. Another fine quilting job by Viki. Love the colors!

I think I am caught up now with reasons I haven't been posting lately. Hope it won't be as long the next time.

Happy Quilting everyone.
