Hmmm, I'm starting to think I may be involved in too many sewalongs! 

One of them will be ending in a couple of weeks, though...the Hand-Pieced QAL. 

I finished up the stitching on this week's block during my morning coffee today...

I have also been keeping up nicely with the Harry Potter sewalong. This week we worked on Snape...

Here are the whole gang hanging on the design wall...

That's about all for today....except I just have to share...

I was so excited to get the email yesterday informing me that my Down the Rabbit Hole has been accepted to the National Juried Show this year in Ottawa! 

As someone who has been a hand-quilter since I was 19 in 1980, it feels so special to have a hand-quilted quilt accepted...I can't even explain how it feels!

It's been quite a few weeks since I submitted my quilt. Then I had to put it out of my mind. I really couldn't believe it when the email came in :)

Now....anyone going to Quilt Canada this year?....Maybe you could take a picture of my quilt hanging in the show for me? That would be wonderful.

Today I am linking up with Elm Street Quilts for the Hand Pieced QAL, and with Sew Fresh Quilts for Let's Bee Social.


  1. How exciting about your Down the Rabbit Hole quilt! It is so beautiful it would have been hard for them to resist. I am hoping to get to Quilt Canada this year and will be on the lookout for it. If I get a pic or two I'd be happy to share. Congrats again. And thanks for the IF info in your last post. Looks like an interesting process and I am going to dig into it further.

  2. Not hard to see why DTRH got into the show! It is a beautiful quilt! Congratulations!

    I try not to sign up for too many quilt alongs...I find hey can suck up all my sewing time if I let them! Tour two sew along blocks look great!

  3. Congratulations! That is terrific news! I'm not going this year, but if I had a quilt in the juried show, I'd have to find my way there LOL

  4. Your block looks great - Thanks for linking up with the Hand Pieced QAL!
