I am off to Houston in the morning. This will be my first time at the Houston Quilt Festival and I am pretty darned excited about it. I am on pins and needles to see what ribbon we won on "Oregon Shores". I am also excited to see all the other amazing quilts. The vendor mall is calling to me already like a siren with all the great wares waiting for me to check them out...................boy am I gonna try my best to stick to the list of things I am looking for. A few embellishemt items for crazy quilting, stencils and some threads I am in need of.
I have almost finished up Round 1 of the Crazy Quilt Round Robin I am in. This is the block I recieved and I have done all the seam treatments. When I get back from Houston I plan to do a few extra things.

You are The Star
Hope, expectation, Bright promises.
The Star is one of the great cards of faith, dreams realised
The Star is a card that looks to the future. It does not predict any immediate or powerful change, but it does predict hope and healing. This card suggests clarity of vision, spiritual insight. And, most importantly, that unexpected help will be coming, with water to quench your thirst, with a guiding light to the future. They might say you're a dreamer, but you're not the only one.
What Tarot Card are You?

One would think pinwheel blocks are pretty straight forward to make. Not wonkey ones. These really took concentration to get them to have the wonkey look. I did have fun making them.
I think the best thing about making this quilt is that I am gifted with the leftover and the saris are each have about 6 yards of fabric. I am not sure what to do with them yet but the sure are pretty.
To win her awesome crochet scarf. She has also generously posted a tutorial on how she makes these scarfs so if you are not luck enough to win you can make your own. I am sure going to try to make one and see if what happens.
