SAQA Auction Quilt

 Yesterday I finished 2 small quilts.
One of them is my donation for the SAQA auction.
Loved this fabric when I bought it.
I made a tote bag from some and have been
Snipping at it little by little.
I think I have a fat quarter left.
They look like quinia hens
 The other quilt is for my Chairs show in august.
Flowers and fences from a photo I took
in Douglas Michigan.
Love the views around Lake Michigan and
the Saugatuck / Douglas area.
Now I must concentrate on my prep for Chicago.
I have learned to start early.
Something always comes up.

So far this week

 Four more small quilts done this week.
Only 4 more to go.
Thanks Goodness.
I am tired of smalls.
 But I must get ready for open studios at the
International Quilt Festival in Chicago.
The Photo to Quilt is almost done.
I just need to do Painted Quilts.
 These quilts are not wonky I took the photos
with them laying on the bed.
I will not do this again.
Well off to bed.
Need to be off early for a pain shot.
Hopefully it will help me handle next week.

Works in progress

 My 3 design boards are full of works done and
works in progress. This board is painted quilting.
I haven't done much with these yet.
The sunset on top is my inspiration.
Lots of work here.
 Board number 2 has completed works on.
Some really  nice smalls here.
I like the sunflower and the bird.
Board number 3 has the 4 projects I will
demo at the International Quilt Festival

Ready for a busy week.
Now off to the studio early.
