This year I was one of the people in charge of the challenge in the Penn Oaks Quilt Guild. Our theme was "Where You Live". It could be anything, real, fantasy, and they all did a great job. The only problem was I forgot to take pictures! When you are in charge that can be a "challenge".  They will be hung at our upcoming quilt show and I promise I will take pictures.
Mine shows me living in my pink and green house surrounded by fabric. It is even sort of log cabinish. The triangles along the side were just a design decision because it needed something else. I like doing them wonky, it made it go fast and was fun.

Speaking of the quilt show, it is right around the corner. If you live anywhere near us please come and enjoy a wonderful group of quilters who put on a spectacular quilt show. Our guild has only 60 members and every single person contributes in some way to make this a huge success. I promise you will not be disappointed.

The other day I took a picture of something on my ironing board and it looked pretty bad. I made a new pretty pink one this weekend. I hoping it will make ironing a little more fun, not that I iron too many things other than fabric....



  1. What a beautiful bright happy home!! What size is your quilt? The show sounds wonderful, I'm sure you'll have a lot of visitors. I'm looking forward to lots of photos. Your new ironing board cover is so pretty too. New ones look so pretty that it makes you wonder why you left it so long.

  2. I love your house and what you surround yourself with. Such an uplifting, happy quilt.! That border is just perfect. I can't wait to see it in person at the show.
    Yeah.. My ironing board.. What a mess! Wait, I don't use one.. But you know what I use and it's a big mess too.
    Yours looks so pretty!

  3. What a cute, fun quilt! It looks just like you. Love those triangles in the border - I think wonky is more fun too. (But you knew that!)

    Wish I could come to your quilt show...take lots of pictures for us!

  4. I love the colors and the story. You look so fashionable in the doorway of your house. I wish I lived close enough to come see the show.

  5. Your challenge quilt is great. I especially like the wonky flying geese. That says a lot!

  6. I LOVE your challenge quilt... It is totally charming!!!

  7. Okay.
    I'm totally in love with your piece. Are you sure you didn't create it for me? I LOVE everything about it. The sawtooth border is inspired.
    I love the vintagy girl in the house.
    This made my day!!!
    gush, gush, gush

  8. Now I do like your house quilt! Lots of energy!


I love to read your comments, they make my day!
