row of quilts

My Liberated Rainbow quilt is second in this row.

This is the weekend of the 20th annual quilt show put on by Sea Pals, the quilt club in Ocean Shores.  I have been a member of this group for 12 or 13 years, though I haven’t been active since Seneca and Raven’s school schedule has made it impossible to be at Ocean Shores during the week when they meet.  I have recently joined the club in Sequim and am getting acquainted with Sun Bonnet Sues there.

But I decided to enter the  Sea Pals quilt show one more time.  There were over 200 hundred quilts on display, and I was very surprised this morning to see that my Liberated Dresden Plate quilt won third prize in viewer’s choice  for the hand quilted category.  This is the quilt that took me three years to finish due to my broken arm.

My friend Barb also won a prize, second place for her art quilt, which is an Oak Tree in wild colored fabrics.

Another art quilt by my friend Barb, I sent her a picture of an octopus quilt and she made her own version. This is titled “Armed and Dangerous.”

It has been very rainy here this weekend.


Rain and more rain



The kids finally went outside to ride bikes in the puddles.

I sewed the binding down on this quilt that will be given to to someone who needs it.

I had them pose with a Community Quilt I hemmed for the Sun Bonnet Sues group, they give away many quilts each year to people who need them.

Seneca and our little foster boy then tried on Halloween costumes in anticipation.


Getting ready for Halloween

Ted replaced the garbage disposal and I worked on a new project, a blue and white quilt made with blue scraps.
