Design Wall 1/31/11

This weekend was our Quilt of Valor sew day. We got 5 quilts bound, and 3 more quilt tops started. I was so inspired that I came home a stitched a little bit more on my quilt kit.  It is the rail fence (found here:
http://alyciaquilts.blogspot.com/2011/01/scrappy-rail-fence-pattern-for-jan-30th.html

and it is very very scrappy. So scrappy, that I just sewed darks together until the strip reached 42 inches, so some of the strips consist of a few colors.... we will see how it turns out!

 This is all of us *girls* quilting. We moved all the tables close so we could talk too - I LOVED it. These ladies are the BEST!!!

And they brought chocolate and Gluten free crackers. - see just AWESOME!!




****GIVEAWAY ALERT*****

I have a postcard quilting book - yes - I had a few of them - but it wasn't my fault..... I swear!

So - If you are interested in a book about fabric postcards - leave me a comment , (and a way to get in touch with you)  and at 8pm on Wednesday I will draw a name and get it in the mail to you.


This is a picture of one of the postcards inside. It is a cool little book.

I think chocolate is a required assessory when you get together to quilt :)

I would love the quilted postcard book. I make them and send to my son - he 'hangs' them in his work cubicle.
Thanks

Don't enter me this time. I just have a question on the QoV. Do you have a place I can donate just a top or do I need to have it quilted first? keep up the good work- cheryl

I've never held a fabric postcard, never saw a pattern to make one either. Would love to win this giveaway - thanks for the chance!!

The postcard quilting book is really pretty! :) By the way, glad to hear that when you were quilting with the other ladies, you ate gluten free crackers! It's not only healthy, I'm sure it's yummy too! Thanks for sharing these great photos! :)
