Introducing my 4th finish of the year!!
This is my Giant Starburst quilt. I followed the quilt along by Megan at Canoe Ridge Creations.
This backing is one of my favorites!!!

I quilted it with straight line machine quilting. I love how it came out. To mark my lines I used painter's tape. Each line of blue is two strips of tape. Sewed down one side, removed one strip and then sewed along both sides of the second strip.
I absolutely love how it turned out!
This is my second Angel Quilt: Helping find a cure for Joshua and CF of the year. (5th overall) If you don't know about this project you can learn more here.
In the past I have done a silent auction on fb with my friends. I am still very nervous about strangers having my quilts. Is that weird?
A friend recommended that I raffle them off instead. That way I could set the price and determine how many tickets I wanted to sell. What a great idea!!! Thanks Michelle.
I am very proud to announce that after the raffle I was able to donate $220 in profits, to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. The check is in the mail today.
I have another announcement too!!
I now have a facebook page for my little business that I am starting. Check it out. It is still a work in progress. Hope you enjoy it and "like" too. ;-)
I have been keeping a list of all the quilts that friends have asked me to make for them. I also am working on seven memory quilts for a client that my brother found for me. I am so blessed to have so many people asking me to make them quilts. Business is beyond great... now just to schedule time during the summer, with 3 kids home, to work on the giant list I have.
