Welcome to my world where I try to figure out what I'm going to do next! These days, it is mostly quilting, but you never know what it might be... come find out with me!

what a hoot!  The Blue Mountain Slashers had a fabulous time at the FVQG's Iron Quilter competition.  We arrived with our fabric in hand and our cutters ready to roll!  Unfortunately, so did the competition, and the judges declared them the winner - by a single point - talk about a close competition!  In the end, everyone was a winner - we got to quilt with friends, make a donation quilt that will be appreciated, and take in a great quilt show, and had a lot of laughs in the process.

The team, L-R Janet, Brigitte, Joanne, Kari, May and Mary Ann
Thank you Kari for the picture!

I didn't take my camera, and was a little pre-occupied even if I had, so many thanks to Kari and Christine who have provided the pictures for this post.
Happy quilting!
