RCQ Tote and Gloat Challenge

This is my Rose City Quilters Tote and Gloat Challenge. At this time most people will already be there. The theme was inspired by a piece of music or singer, Mine is inspired by "Gene Pitney's Song Autumn Leaves"
Well I will be of to the Tote and Gloat shortly, and will try not to spend to much money. They are having a great speaker this afternoon.

Marking the Quilt

Well I am not sure if anyone can work out what I am trying to say here, I love to use Glad Press'n'seal to mark dark quilts. I use this idea for feathers and other biggish shapes BUT found out doing loopity loops or stippling on it is NOT A GOOD IDEA. Far to many little pieces to pull out.

Another Challenge almost finished (I will store it away safely until August) that will make 4 finished and 2 to go.
After the 1st of May I will be able to post my first Challenge of this year.

Cara's name bug

This small wall hanging has been made by using some painted fabric. Painted by my friend Anne and the centre name bug is my grand daughters name, I thought it would be a nice way to use some of her work that she had been playing around with one day while she was staying with me.
By the way the leaves on the quilt are miniature maple leaves.

I made this lap quilt for my sister who loves music.
