Last minute tidy up...

I've been rushing around trying to tidy up life before I leave for Paducah! I sure can't wait. Above is the center of my BOM class at the LQS. I also had to get borders on for tonight, but I didn't have time to get a picture last night. So that will have to wait. Below is the original version I made. I like trying to make the demo one look very different than the first one I do for the shop sample! I suceeded don't you think! (wait till you see the different borders I put on it!)

I worked a lot this weekend for regular work. But I did tidy up some of my quilt books and sewing table. And my inspiration corner by my bed where all my books of the moment and stuff lay. And now I have a problem! I can't find my notebook with all my lists of things to look for in Paducah! I searched high and low for it last night! Can't figure out where I laid it down! How can a notebook that I just used a week ago at the Chicago show disapper! Oh well, I'm starting a new list today and I've got tonight and tomorrow morning to look again. Figures doesn't it!

Don't you just wish you could fit your notebook with a ringtone like your mobile phone so you could ring it to find it - I guess that's what one of those blackberry things is eh?

Both quilts look spectacular! I'm excited for you, have a really good time.

Suprising the power of color. So similar and so different the two quilts. Both are beautiful.
Hope you find your notebook soon.

Here's hoping you find the notebook - and have a fabulous time! How could you help but do so! I am so very envious of all of you. One of these years I'll figure out a way to join you.

Of course, you know you will find the notebook when you get back. Or at least, that is what always happens to me -- some guy named Murphy and his silly laws!

Have a great time in Paducah and make sure to tell all when you get back. Love both the BOM quilts!

Love your quilt Dawn! You are so right about the border--it adds so much to the overall design, and unifies all the different blocks and scrappy fabrics.
I had a notebook that was full of notes regarding my daughter's wedding that I misplaced. Naturally it turned up after the event...
