Back From Omaha!

I am so sorry that I haven't posted anything for awhile...I guess I became a little discouraged with what happened in the spring...but I am back! I just got back from the Crazy Quilt Convention in Omaha and everyone I was with had a wonderful time! I worked on my Victorian Fancyworks Sampler while I was there. That is the class that Miss Carole Samples came to Wichita last fall and taught us. I have only 3 more full seams to go and a few embellishers on two of the seams. The sampler has definitely been a challenge! We are busy working on our new MCC Quilt for next year and it is being done in pastels! Here is a picture of the beautiful stitching that has been done on a fan so far. The beautiful work in the corner has been done by Miss Lori of our group. Also here is a picture of my sampler in it's final stages!

See you later!



  1. This is beautiful! I just love the tiny little bird. Take care!

  2. I wish I could have gone to Omaha. Will you have a separate post for each day you were there?

  3. Yay! Comments are back! I haven't been by lately. =)

    Your block from Miss Carole's class is looking gorgeous! I'm glad you got to go to Omaha!

  4. What a wonderful block, Miss Valerie! I can hardly wait 'til it's finished. Meanwhile, I need another couple of days to finish my project for YOU. Soon we can "trade items" and get busy doin' the next thing! +++ Bless you for ALL that you do to keep crazyquilt making and embellishing alive in the 21st century!! (What else have you been working on?) +++ Wishing you another scathingly brilliant idea, very soon (and one for me, too!). . .

  5. Your block is just beautiful! Glad you had a great time in Omaha.
