Energized by my quilt guild meeting

Yesterday was my monthly quilt guild meeting, and as usual, it energized my creative juices. We had a trunk show by a guild member, who shared a portion of her antique quilts collection, as well as a portion of the quilts that she has made. We also had a UFO Challenge, and the quilts entered were awesome. One in particular caught my attention, a version of Hop To It by Edyta Sitar, but made with flannel background fabrics and felted wool appliqué pieces. It was also hand quilted.

It got me to thinking about a project that I haven't worked on in quite a while - Dream a Little Dream by LizzieB Cre8ive. I pulled that project out and tried to reacquaint myself with it. I created some more of the appliqué pieces, and I actually sewed one down. I had previously machine appliquééd the green hills and the house body with the two windows down, but nothing else. Last night I hand-appliquéd the red door. Everything else is pinned in place. Also, this is just one of three panels.

And here is the latest on my plums pillow.

Next post I'll fess up to what I ordered online... :)
