Sue Spargo in Chico!!

 Last night was the Annie's Star Quilt Guild meeting in Chico with quilting super star Sue Spargo.  Here she is  pictured with our local star Kitty Pippin.
 Sue's talk was very interesting, and she showed us her wonderful quilts.  These pictures don't do them justice.  The quilts are amazing and the quilting is wonderful.

I have been busy

 Last summer I went to Alaska to my best friends son's wedding.  Then it took me what seemed like forever to decide what to make them for a gift.  I finally decided I would make pillow shams.  Hand quilted of course.
 The process took way longer than I thought it would, but as of last night they are completed!  Standard size pillows will fit.  the only machine quilting I did was around the inside where I have it pinned.  And of course the outer edge.
After I got out the blue and put them in the dryer they turned out awesome.  Just enough crinkle to make them look hand done.  If it wasn't so much work I would make some for me!  They look great.  Now to buy new pillows and get them in the mail to Denver.
