This quilt was made by Barbara Sawyer and I forgot it in the line of Whisper Challenge quilts.  So it is now corrected.  Check the last  post to see where it fits in.  Thanks Janice for the heads up!

I visited and joined the Antelope Valley Quilt Guild last night in Lancaster.  Nancy Rink was the speaker and was very enjoyable.  I enjoyed getting to know some of the ladies and look forward to going back.  Now I just need to get the Loose Threads to change our meeting dates as they conflict.  I really miss my other guilds and find it hard to fit in but I guess it takes time.  I'd like to go to the retreat but it interferes with Houston. 

To kill time before the meeting I stopped at Bolts in the Bathtub and picked up some fabric for a quilt I have been asked to make for my sister-in-law.  She wants a purple Asian style quilt for her employee who is retiring.   Now to decide on the pattern.

I have been working on my Material Girls Challenge - scrappy half square triangles.  The top is finally done but I'm not sure I can quilt it.  I'm not a very good machine quilter and it is so busy I don't know how to quilt it even if I could.  How do you quilt a scrappy quilt?

The workmen are here working on the last electrical panel for the solar.  Next we wait for Southern Cal Edison to give the OK to hook it to the power grid.  You know they are going to take their sweet time about it.  With this hot weather they love all the energy we are using.

  1. First off, you are a good machine quilter. I don't know why you keep saying you aren't. Look at what you did with the one hanging in the bathroom. Anyway, as far as busy scrappy - just do an all over design. Don't spend time on something that won't be seen.
    Glad you joined the guild and are enjoying it and the ladies. The Loose Threads will have to work on scheduling for all the members.
