It IS Pie!

Happy Pie Day!  (3.14)  I'm sharing my quilt which is just back from QuiltCon.  It was a thrill to be part of the show in Raleigh.

Here is a close up of the quilting.  I used alternating lime green thread and rainbow.
Thank you to everyone who sent me a nice comment or a photos of my quilt.  It was great to see it on IG and get some new followers.

Hooray!  I finished another UFO.  It is an outreach quilt for Habitat for  Humanity.
Sorry, it is upside down, here is a closer look.  It is a cute print with Santa cowboys.  Why Santa?  dunno.
I machine stitched the binding down from the front using this blanket stitch and I really like it!  Good for a quilt that might get tugged and washed a lot.
I practiced my free-motion quilting, which is not great.  Not bad, but not good either.

Here are my Jane Stickle blocks.  Not a UFO but hey, I get to do one thing not on the list right?
I've decided on this red for the bindings on my potholder style quilt.  I'll be machine quilting it with silk thread.    I'm only making 100 blocks (ha ha - only)

I haven't been quilting on Jill's quilt nearly enough and must recommit.
I had a nice visit with the Hudson Highland Quilters. 
We had a day of building houses without patterns.  What a treat to have pizza dinner and a catered lunch with this group.
Don't forget to treat yourself to a Shamrock Shake!  I had one while running errands and it was such a good naughty treat.
Have a great Pie Day!!
See you in April.
