Works In Progress Wednesday

Monday, I decided to work on my quilting because it was a holiday in Alberta and I wanted to use the holiday for myself. I started quilting on my Lime Green Star Struck. I came close to finishing but not quiet. I need to finish it today and get working on a customers quilt next. I might make some more Jam tonight after it cools down (say midnight).

I have added today's post to Freshly Pieced WIP Wednesday and Needle and Thread Network.

I have left these two photos a little larger if you want to enlarge the photo to see it closer. I still have to finish the blue stars and the last of the boarder.

Look what I won.

Yesterday I spent the day in the city. Mom and I went to the Funereal of a old quilt friend. A perfect services for an old friend. Then some shopping, supper and then a quilter's trunk show, complete with a magic show too.  I won these tie silks at the trunk show.

Claudia Pfeil of Germany is in town to teach machine quilting. Last night was a free trunk show. Turtle Bay by Claudia Pfeil was there in person. She is shipping it out to a quilt show today.

This quilt is amazing to see in person. Great work. I will say she spend a large part of a year on just this quilt ( well and running a business and kids ect). But my point is I do not think I could do just one quilt at a time. I get far to distracted.
