      Thanks, the quilt will be on exhibition at my quilt guild for the show.  It is not in competition for any prizes.  All of the members are asked to make quilts for the show, or else there will be no show.  It's our chance to show our work city wide.  We sell tickets to raise money for the guild and have a raffle quilt.  We have door prizes and other raffles.  We have vendors also with craft related items for sell, fabric fabric and more fabric.  giggle.

        OH wow to be your neighbor - I would love - but u live in cold country ! Even though I live in a sorta' southern state it is still too cold here too. (enough of that Great for all that u are a part of with this quilting guild!  My mother-in-law just went to TN to visit my daughter and they went to a Quilt show.  I haven't heard how it went - she has been busy with her little granchildren.  My husbands younger brother (age 40 ) finally has 2 little ones (age 4and 1) and mom is crazy over them.  Dad is getting tired of being a 2nd placer - he and I have had some good heart to heat conversations when she is away for a visit. I would love to sew more - so much for the family that needs my time - I get snip-its of time.   DO you ever go thru lulls of no creativity or not want to sew? I hate those times.  It is like you are in a warp or you have so much to do that your creative juices get bogged.  :~/ Did someone donate the prize quilt? Anyway, great quilting  - share with all how the showing goes?  :~)  tera

          Thanks sweetie:  And YES I go through lulls in creativity.  Usually right after fall and Christmas.  Then during most of the summer.  But when I'm on, I'm on and when I'm not, I can sit down at my machine and just look at it.  I pull out yarn and just re-arrange it in the tubs.  I look through books and look through books.  Then I go in an entirely different direction outside of what I usually do.  My mind complains about all of the time I'm wasting, but I can't get it together.  And OH the dreaded ideas and creations that never materialize.  I always have creative ideas.  Some hit the table and others dissappear into thin air.  giggle.  I still buy stuff during these times, but I've slowed down even doing this because I have so much I haven't used.  I start looking at it as money sitting in tubs, on shelves and in containers and I stop spending. 

          The raffle quilt is started a year and a half before the next show by the raffle quilt committee.  Themes are voted on by the guild and then participating members of the guild make the blocks.  Then a committee members put the quilt together and get it quilted.  It is shown to the guild and approved on by discussion and vote.

          The show will be in October.

            Neat my friend, been a little under the weather so I just been chatting with new and ol'friends I met here.   So great of you to share so much.   I would love a sewing group - not sure which one I would join thou, my great love is Cross-Stitch - I have too many there and I have several to be mounted and framed.  I love taking an empty canvas and seeing it come alive.  You do have to be so very careful.  I am with on the too much - it is monies in a box, bucket, table and etc..   I get alot on sale and or thrift store sales - it is amazing what people throw away, donate and just plain give away !  I was once given a hefty bag full of so so many scraps and I had so many that I gave them to a Nursing home for the ladies there quilted.   I hate those lulls and those times U have great ideas and they just stare back at you.  LIKE my Capri ones.  I am at a low point with them - I have been given the best of ideas and for some reason or another I can't see some.   I think my minds eye is on vacation.  As my mother-in-laws when she needs to heavy clean - she will call and say send me your cleaning bugs so they can assist me in my strength to get more done and then she will call later and tell me to call them off - they are wk'ing her to death.  Oh to wiggle our nose to get the extra wk' done.  I could so far- go the housecleaning - some times it is so so boring, but I put on music and we dance though the house.  I would do this when the kids were little and make a game out of it and we would make neat fun snacks.  Now it is harder - somedays my son is a go and others his focus is so off.  you never know. 

            SO what does that quilt prize look like - can you describe it?   I saw one yrs ago at a very expensive shop that I wish I had a camera - it was a design like I have never seen before and have not seen anything like it since.  It was so different.   :~)  tera

            Actually, the quilt was just four patch blocks made out of an ethnic fabric of your choice.  I didn't make all of the meetings, and I missed the one when they brought in the quilt.  So, I haven't seen it.  I made several blocks for it with African inspired fabrics.  I will see it at the show in October.
