At the Brady's Run, in New Brighton, PA hosted by Beaver Valley Piecemakers
Left to Right
I didn't get the time to take the picture at the quilt show, I just went and picked it up. So I took a picture when I got home.
It has been folded in every which way, so you maybe able to see the folds.
It was fun doing the quilt, but I am glad it's over and all the quilt shows are done for this quilt.
Now it will be on it's way to the "A Way With Words Foundation", http://www.awaywithwordsfoundation.org/ for children with cancer. They will use it as a fundraiser for their projects for the children.
Thank You to the other girls who helped make the quilt possible.

Here is my part of the Season Panel Quilt that some of us are working on. I have finished with the applique part of it. We are getting to together on March 28, to put them together and decide how we will quilt them. Then I will finish embellishing my panel. I know what I have in mind, but any ideas out there? Let me know. I will post again when it is embellished and all four panels are together. Please post comments.

I enlarged the quilt pattern and then divided the pattern into 4 even panels, and redrew each one. We each got a season to quilt as we saw that season in Ohio, the pattern is called Road to Ohio, and we have permission from Two Cousins.
The sky is hand dyed fabric, the others are from fabric lines.
The pond water is hand painted, I really did not like the tree in this picture, I tried other fabric and finally came up the one in the next picture.
I didn't like the second panel of fabric up from the pond, the dark gold one with the brown lines on it, it just did not look or feel right to me.
Then I put this darker tree in place of the other one and it felt much better.
Both the tree and that dark gold panel seems to work better then before.
Now, I am thinking of redoing the bottom panel of fabric, I am thinking of going darker also. But not as dark as the tree.
I still have some the panels to sew down, the tree is not folded in yet so the limbs look large.
I am still working on what I am going to use for embellishments for this panel. I will keep you posted, I won't be able to show the done quilt until hopefully sometime in April, we are shooting for the deadline for the NQA show in Columbus, Ohio.
I hope to add more of my quilting adventures, I have started some new ideas, I am still working on my dreamcatcher, for the ones of my readers who may be wondering about that one.
Don't forget to check up on Miss Lilybelle, I think she will be posting tomorrow.
Till next time
May you spirit soar,

Tell your friends, and on Feb 4, Briston, my grandson will draw a name to see who the winner is.
I will post the name on the 4th or 5th, depends on when he draws the name.
Keep in Touch and let me know what your doing in the art world.
It snowed again today, and we got about 6 to 8 inches out there.
I know I would like some color, but then isn't white a color, what about ice?
Hubby and I shoveled the driveway tonight, so I could get my car out tomorrow, just in case I needed to rescue some fabric or art supplies from somewhere.
Better go and work on my panel quilt or collage.
Take Care all and keep warm where ever you may be,

I emailed Sue Spargo last night to see if she was going to be open today.
She emailed me back to say yes, she was.
So off to her shop, which is in her home. I had never been there before, what a great place to be
able to go on a short notice. It took about 45 minutes to get to her home. It was a wonderful day for a drive.
Picked up some wool and beads, and some really cool metal buttons.
Here is her blog, if you have never seen her work.
She has an online shop site also.
Take care till next time.

You can't see his face, but this is my grandson "Briston" and he is celebrating the new year.
We started the year off by putting Christmas ornaments and tree away and cleaning most of the house.
I have already started on making my new year a better one, then the last year. One thing that drives me crazy and stressed are my surroundings. I cannot put into words just how much I dislike wallpaper. I have never seen wallpaper that I can say I like.
When we moved into this home in 2006, one of the things it had and still has in some rooms, is wallpaper.
I took the paper out of the upstairs bathroom first, that was in Aug 2006, painted it, sea foam green.
I did paint the hallway the last time he was gone for business.
Nov 2008, I took the paper out of the kitchen and painted it cozy cottage white on top and a darker beige on bottom of the chair rail. With accent color of red and my collection of cookie molds. I love to take old things, yard sales finds, flea market items and use them in other places.
There is an old wood table now in the nook, that has been painted red with black highlights.
The dinning room is next. I am making my surroundings more pleasing, less stressful.
Even tho, my hubby said don't start anything that we can't finish in a weekend, I will start it when he's away for business. That's what I did last time, and it's done.
So, here's to you and a less stressful year.
I only have three quilt projects going on right now.
A large 4 panel quilt, that 3 other ladies are doing also, we are doing the four seasons and I have fall.
A wall hanging collage for my DIL.
A quilted tin for a swap with my F.A.T. group.
I still need to work on my sewing room, that area is stressful.
Take the bull by the horns and have a great year.
Yesterday was the end of another year, if yours was not what you wanted it to be, ask yourself "Why"?
Now take the steps to change your New Year. Make 2009 what you want it to be.
Make a list, if you must.
Read that self help book.
Start an exercise program.
Learn to say "NO".
Volunteer, in your community.
Take it slow and BREATHE!
May many Blessings come your way!
