Update ...

Friend Wanda and I entered two quilts in the East Cobb Quilt show earlier in the summer.  Wanda did the hard work - piecing a Jacqueline de Jong pattern is not for sissies, believe me!  

Curling Colors (Jacqueline de Jong pattern) got a 2nd place ribbon:

We also entered Wanda's By My Hands - pieced with machine applique.  She did a wonderful job and I had a great time quilting this one.  It was a dream to quilt!

By My Hands received a 3rd place ribbon.

Congratulations to us both!  We were gob-smacked at the honors!  

A Salute to the University of Georgia

Friend Patsy Ruth's daughter Julie graduated from the University of GA some time ago and is currently working on her doctorate.  She is employed by the University as the Alumni coordinator and recently got a promotion ... new office with a big blank wall.  Patsy decided to piece a wall hanging for her and gave it to me to quilt.  This is Capristrano by Judy Martin from her Stellar Quilts book.  Isn't it stellar?
