All three of the quilts that I put together from blocks received by fabulous CQI and RMCQ members, are going to be judged and exhibited in the Houston Quilt Festival! I am sooooo pleased that we're making a BIG splash in showing what can be done with crazy quilting! VBG!

Then, I received a GORGEOUS bouquet of flowers from a dear friend, Cathy Kizerian to celebrate our success! I HAVE to share them with all of you! They are JUST ...GOAJUS!!!

Beautiful Beginnings rr- Sheilas block

This is Sheila's block that i'm working on for the beautiful beginnings rr. The previous stitcher, Vicky Alktahib, had don the silky and the butterfly and the seam on the orange. My challenge was to try and pull some of the colors in the blocks together and help keep the eye moving. I envisioned a sort of window within a window. I created the mountains and some clouds and the added quite a bit of dimesional flowers above the cottage and around the mountain patch. I also created a dragonfly .....and made a switch on the wings....which I think look great now! Enjoy!
