Last day to enter for giveaway and Quilt Guild Meeting

Last day to enter for giveaway and Quilt Guild Meeting
Just a reminder about the surprise giveaway below. I will announce the winner on Tuesday. I worked on something to giveaway if the winner wants handmade and I also put a package together if the winner wanted something to work with. Can't wait to find out who it is.
It's been kinda busy around here, my son is moving from Dallas, Texas to Houston, Texas and we helped out. He is here at this time and will be going to Houston this week to look for an apartment.
We had our quilt guild meeting this last Thursday and I could only get close ups of the quilts. I was too for back when they had them open. Kay McGee was our speaker and she takes old quilts that might have holes in them or just tops that never got quilted and makes them into treasures. She gives them new life, now these are quilts that needed to be taken and cared for. You should of seen the before pictures. The blocks were wavy and you couldn't have even quilted them the way some of them were pieced. She adds borders or appliques to them.
So I'm leaving you with some of her quilts.






Keep Stitchen'

The quilts are lovely. People are always asking me what to do with "love spots" on quilts and what to do with vintage blocks. These are all really good for me to see because I tell people to use them, fix them and display them. Nice.
