One of my goals this last week was to get a QOV quilted, and it worked!! I got two done. The first quilt came from my friend ,Jess and her group, sent to me. I quilted it with a pattern from Dawn R's Pajama Quilter DVD. Except that as I am typing this I totally forgot the name of it, and I am NOT getting off of the couch - its a fern thing... maybe fern ziggle???

Anyways - it was fun to do, and I think it looks pretty good.

This next quilt was made by Harriett from my quilt guild. She is a military wife, and spent many  years following her husband all of the place. I quilted it with stars. My boys helped a little here and there.

On our way home from High school this afternoon we saw a huge puff of black smoke go up. Turns out it was about 1,000 acre fire and it ended up taking down a house. We were (and still are) perfectly safe, but that was awful to watch. We have a few friends who have houses less than 1/2 mile away from it. Scary!!

Tomorrow starts Quilt A Fair at the Boulder County Fairgrounds, in Longmont. I will be visiting for a little while - so if you are there come say hi to me as I am shopping!!! ( there is FABRIC!!!)

Oh my goodness. That is frightening! I'm glad you're okay.

Did you way someone lost their house? I wonder if they could use some quilts.
