I am new to Ohio Quilters. Just wondering why the blog posts are so old? (2011). Do you all not blog, and just comment?

Janis, those are gorgeous and the possibilities are endless using different fabrics.  The ones in the picture look so elegant, but they could fit in to a rustic decor with homespun fabrics and would have such a peaceful wintry look with blues and silvers.  Love them!

Comment by Sheila Craft on Monday

Janis, those are adorable and it doesn't look like they'd take much in the way of fabric, either. Looks like the perfect project to get you into that brand new sewing room, too.

Well, vacation is over. Back to the grind tomorrow morning. Grrrrr....

Carol, Sheila and Sherri, you are inspiring me to get sewing again. I haven't sewn since I moved last year. I finally got my sewing room in my new home set up this spring and it is on the second floor which gets pretty warm up there in the summer. I am itching to sew some Quilted Christmas Trees this year for my new home. I'll have to look at my stash and see if I have everything I need.

On the two for the twins, she specifically said - NO PINK! Do you know how hard it is to find charm packs with no pink in them???? 

Comment by Sheila Craft on Saturday

Very cute projects, Carol! I'm sure the 3-d effect is better in person (LOL!). That's awesome that you could provide them with a new quilt in the preschool.

Darn, Sherri! I was hoping she'd win but, guess they have to learn how to lose gracefully, too.

Well, I can finally show what has consumed my time for the last 2 months. One of my cousins is soon to be a grandmother again - to twin girls! She is paying me for these 2 quilts.

Just need to launder and mail.

Then a previous co-worker has been trying to get pregnant for about 3 years and finally did. She has a little girl coming next month (she's in CA) so, I'm gifting this one to her.

All are made using the MSQC "Falling Charms" tutorial and I quilted it using my Amelie Scott "Edge to Edge" machine embroidery designs. Not the best pics but, DH doesn't get paid to hold them up for me so, I guess I can't expect perfection in the presentation, huh?

Finished a couple projects.  Ladybug Landing is for a young mom-to-be who works at the school where I sub.  Love the 3-D flowers -- nice texture for baby to touch.  The other is a banner for the lobby of Jill's preschool.  There are 10 classrooms.  Teachers in each room chose a drawing to represent their classroom.  I turned them into an appliqued block.  Jill had the names embroidered at a local embroidery shop and I put it all together and quilted it.  It will replace an old, dusty, outdated one in their lobby.  Luckily, there is already a beautiful quilt hanger mounted on a brick wall that it can hang on.

Sherri, I sure was hoping she would win. Although losses early in life teaches you how to handle major losses later. She sure did deserve to win though. I hope it helps her to know a lot of people were pulling for her.

Comment by Carol Vickers/OH on Friday

Doggone, Sherri.  I was so hoping (and voting) that she'd come out ahead.  You are right, losses are part of life, and she'll be fine but she sure deserved this one.  

Comment by Sherri Eley on Friday

The votes are in and my dear Madi lost by about 100 votes. But she is a level headed, self confident young lady and I am not worried about her. She will continue to do her best in everything she does, and these little things won't bother her. I think she has gotten pretty strong dealing with all the health issues she has faced in her young life.
Getting ready to head to the reservoir to walk the pooch. She and my spouse go almost everyday. I am not so committed I manage several times a week. But it is cool today so going to have to bundle up in sweatshirt and hat and gloves. Thanks again ladies. I appreciate your support for my granddaughter.

we have found that we have to wait 2 hours between votes.  If your vote isn't counted you get a message, "we have already counted your vote" 

If it is counted you get a simple "thanks for your vote"  My husband and I have developed a system every 2 hours we each vote on our laptops then again on our I phones. and that seems to be working.  But she has been falling behind and then getting a little lead and then falling behind all day.  It's going to go down to the wire.  Thanks for all your efforts on this. Also I was wrong on the voting times.  It is over tomorrow at 11am.  so votes can be cast until that time.
