 Here is a picture of my RRCB finished.  Yea!!!  another UFO bites the dust.

Beaufort Quilt Show

Mothers Day weekend we went to Beaufort SC to see your son and go to the quilt show.  We took William to lunch at a great place to eat.  I had a shrimp burger.  Boy was it good.  Wayne had crab cakes that were great too.  After lunch Wayne and I went to the quilt show.  William said he would pass.  No shocker there. LOL.   Here are just a few pictures from the show.  I hope you enjoy them.

This one is wool applique with lots of embellishments on it.  The picture does not do it justice.

This was wonderful applique.  Ok, pictures are sideways again.  I cant seem to get it right tonite.  Lol.   I need my son to help me. 

all of the work was great and I enjoyed the show.

Happy quilting,

Beach Retreat

I had the chance to go on a beach retreat to quilt, with a group of friends from Aiken.  Some one in their group couldnt go and they thought of me.  It was wonderful and a great surprise.  I knew several of the girls before and made new friends while quilting.  My pictures didnt turn out.  I lost them in the camera.  What am I to do.........

I finished several UFO tops.  Yea!!!!  And I have quilted 2 of them.  One was a t-shirt quilt for a customer.  I hope the grad loves it.  Her mom sure did.  Next was a disappearing 9-patch.  It is quilted and I will try to get a picture soon.  Then came a kids quilt that I started at the state fair when doing demos back in Oct., still needs quilting.  Will wait until I have several kids quilts and do all at once.  I like to sew the backings together to load on the longarm.  Then only one load for several small quilts.  Finished my QSC retreat quilt top.  Will quilt it next, may load tomorrow.  Need to come up with a backing.   The other think we all worked on was bags for The Lydia Project.  Check it out at  They give chemo bags to cancer patients.  You can have one sent to a friend in need.   I made 5 bags and total I think we made over 33 bags.  That was great work.  I even had some more bag kits sent to me to make. 

Sorry no pic this time, will try to do better.

happy quilting, Vicki

Donation quilt

Donation quilt for The Orangeburg Quilters Guild.  Sorry it is sideways.  It looks great in person.  Queen size.  Every year at our county fair one area guild gets to have a donation quilt.  We take turns, and this year is our turn.  That means lots of hard work for everyone in the guild, since we are a small group.  We use the money raised to help with charity projects and bring in a teacher or 2.  We only get this opportunity  about every 7 or 8 years.  So, you know we make the best of it.
