Quilting Gallery Weekly Contest

I took the plunge and entered my September Alzheimer's Quilt in the Weekly Themed Quilting Contest at the Quilting Gallery. This week's theme just happened to be paper piecing, and my quilt just happened to be paper pieced, something I rarely do - I used to but not any more. I also never enter contests.

Nine Patch

Nine Patch I am working on for Debra Spincic, from fabric she sent to me.  Nothing more wonderful than a 9 patch. I could do them al day long.

I loev this fabric. It has a wonderful, soft hand.

I don't know where I'm going with this blog. Facebook has ruined me.  Bear with me while I get my bearings again.

September ALQ Quilt

Posted by Picasa
I made this quilt some time ago but did not know where it was going. Didn't seem worthy to me. I took it out again and thought; 'beads'. Thst seems to be what it needed. I noticed after taking the photo that I had missed some areas where it needed more quilting so I took care of that. I'm pretty happy with it. I paper pieced each quadrant then stitched them together and appliqued the circle in the center. I used organdy ribbon for the binding.
