Special Exhibit at the New England Quilt Museum

Check out this fantastic exhibit at the New England Quilt Museum.  I am torn whether to attend it or not.  That is the only Saturday I have home in November to devote to quilting. So, I can go and look at other artist's fabulous quilts or stay home and work on my November Schnibble, tackle a UFO for the UFO challenge, finish my granddaugthers' pocket dolls, and/or work on the self-portrait wall hanging I am making for my mother for Christmas (well, let's be real, I would probably start a new project too).




Here is a picture of the quilt I made for my new grandson last year.  It is my first attempt at discharging.  This is a whole cloth quilt made from the dark blue fabric that I had painted with bleach then used paint markers to give some additional color.  I think it iwas the last project that I quilted by hand.  I used that new batting with 50% cotton and 50% bamboo.  I really like that batting--very soft and drapes wonderfully.

That is the Love of my life holding it.
