A gorgeous Mariner's compass - perfect points everywhere.
And here is my little butterfly quilt made in Year 2000. It has a special butterfly with the sparkly 2000 fabric.
And this quilt was made by a great quilter and friend Linda Dellinger. Her father was a Prisoner of War in the Vietnam War and she makes these quilts in honor of POW's. You can't see it very well in the picture, but names of POW's are embroidered on the blocks.
I won a door prize at the pre-show party. A FQ pack from Quilter's Loft in Mooresville, NC. What a wonderful prize. I did not take any ribbons on my quilts in the show, but I sure did come home with a special prize!
And just a little product endorsement - when you are tired, hungry, and need a treat, might I recommend a vanilla coffee milkshake from Chick-fil-A ! Oh my, so yummmmmmy!

I have another finish to report as well, but the picture will have to wait for another day. I finished my Granddaughter Tess's quilt, dust ruffle and bed pillow. I will be giving it to her tomorrow and my daughter will hopefully get some pictures for me of the setup in Tess's room.
I will be leaving for Richmond Va tomorrow for a business meeting and just hope I can find gas! Its becoming expensive and scare around here. Prices jumped from $3.55 on Thursday to $4.09 today and my daughter took a picture of a Flying J close to our house selling it for $4.89! She sent it in to a the price gauging patrol.
Hope you all have a great week. My guild's quilt show starts on Friday with the pre-show party on Thursday night. There will definitely be pictures of that to show!

I spent most of my Saturday, right here in front of this New Home machine quilting on Tess's quilt (my granddaughter - who just moved into a big girl bed at the age of 3 and needs her big girl quilt!). The New Home machine is a favorite of mine. I can't remember exactly when I got it, but I think it was before my youngest child was born and she turns 23 on the 2oth of this month. Happy Birthday, Ellen! I discovered that if I put a table behind my cutting table and quilt there - I have great support for the quilt and a lot less drag.
Check out this beautiful little wall hanging that Joan is giving away!http://makinquilts.blogspot.com/2008/09/give-away-sunday.html
