Finished!


I added the binding and finished "The Intruder" yesterday. So plenty of time to send in the application for the Quilt Expo Show.

Last night I was graciously invited by Pat Bishop (http://patbishop.blogspot.com/2009/06/she-1-in-series.html) to attend a lecture at the Appleton "Darting Needles" guild.
The guest speaker was Trish Williams from Chicago Illinois (http://trishwilliamshandworks.blogspot.com/).

The lecture was wonderful and Trish was a great speaker full of life and funny as well as
so creative. Totally self taught she just goes for it in her quilts and they are fabulous. It was an evening well spent.

Going to this lecture also gave me the opportunity to meet Pat Bishop, a fantastic quilter as well.
I have met her as a blogger but now have met her in person. It was a pleasure and
so nice that she is taking the time to inform me of opportunities offered by her guild that I might enjoy. Thank you Pat.

Wow, that's a really beautiful quilt! I like the balance of vivid and muted in this piece, so much movement and curve contrasting with straight bold lines. Yes, yes, and YES!

I have to say that this one came together and finished really well. I just really like the way that your stitching enhanced it.
