Just so you don't forget me...

I didn't want you all to forget me, so I'm posting a few teasers today. As I said, I've been way too busy, but have dabbled with a few things. Above is my ongoing back-basting applique project. I just couldn't stand it any longer and had to get some of the blue flowers on it yesterday!

And above is my joke challenge quilt. The theme is Butterfly Fantansy. Butterflies are beautiful in real life, but I don't care for them on quilts or "things" - just too cutesy for me. I really thought about making a quilt with dead butterflies on it and with words saying "Dead Butterflies are the Best Butterflies". But then I thought it might be a bit too bitter for some ladies - so I did a toned down version for a joke. You'll see the whole thing after Wed night.


And then these last "pieces" are my real challenge quilt. I"ve shown Laura a picture and she loved it. Nothing like getting this whole thing made, quilted and bound in a week! I"ll leave you wondering and with these peeks. Thurs I"ll share the full quilt!
