"Fly Away Home" is done. I finished the hanging sleeve when I got home from my vacation and I delivered it to one of the co-chairs of the International Plowing Match Quilt Show today. The quilt competition and show are this weekend--Friday and Saturday in Shedden, Ontario at the Keystone Complex at the Fairgrounds. If you are in this area, you might want to stop in and take a look at the quilts. There will also be vendors and a refreshment area. I will be there most of the day on Saturday. The judging will take place on Wednesday and the show will be set up on Thursday, and then open to the public on Friday and Saturday. The quilts will be displayed again at the International Plowing Match at the St. Thomas airport in September.
I just signed up for Amy's Online Quilt Show. I hope all of you enjoy my sampler quilt. Click on "Grateful Heart Sampler" in the list in the sidebar if you want to see close-ups of each block as I was working on them. I spent a few months piecing the blocks for this quilt and then had it machine quilted by a local longarm quilter. The original pattern came from a magazine.
I will do another vacation blog shortly.
