Today, I am binding and putting the finishing touches on one of the quilts that I entered in the Salute To Texas Quilt Show.
Back in January, I was walking around JoAnn’s and I found six different fabrics with birds.
I love birds.
Anything with birds.
With no plan in mind for how to use this fabric, I purchased some yardage of each of the six.
On the way home, my favorite poem by Emily Dickinson came to mind.
At this time, I was studying and making blocks from Lucinda Ganderton’s book, Block a Day.
I chose some blocks and used the bird fabric for the center points of each block.
Here are some close ups of some of the blocks:

I’ve made and attached the label.
I have also made the sleeve.
Now, it’s binding time.

Quilt Show

Reality just hit.
I received my information letter and participant ribbon for the Salute to Texas Quilt Show.
This is all new to me, and I felt like a kid when I saw the participant ribbon.

Then, I realized that I have only put the binding on one quilt.
I entered three quilts, and the two remaining quilts are large.
I also have to make the hanging sleeves.
Yikes!
Need to get started.
