KNOWLEDGE IS POWER, BUT IT DOESN'T MAKE MY BLOW DRYER RUN!

This little quilt (8 1/2 x 11) is for a guild challenge in September. We decided to make small quilts for theAlzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative. After the challenge we will offer them to any guild member who wants to buy one for $100. The money and the rest of the unsold quilts will be shipped off toAmi Simms where they will sell them with the proceeds going to Alzheimer's research fund.
Here is a close up of my machine quilting. This is a perfect opportunity to play with some designs. It is small enough to manuever under the sewing machine and there is very little quilting in this piece. I also added a little thread detail...the green spikes in the purple middle. It felt kind of flat so I added the green. I also quilted the background first before I put the fused pieces on.
I showed this to my husband and I said would you pay $100 for this? First he said "no, $200" then he said "do they think they can get $100 for a potholder?" Yes he really thought it was a potholder......
How cool is this...we saw a blue heron on top of our garage this morning. He stayed there for a long time...
Sorry the pictures are so bad but I had to take it through the screen. I was afraid if I went outside he would fly away.
