Debra Miller sent me this photo of her finished Bullseye wall quilt. Here’s the story:

I took your bullseye class at the Ky Heritage Quilt Society getaway (Cave City, KY) in June 2019. Finally finished the quilt during Covid shutdown. Did the quilting myself. Trimmed with flying geese and done with extra trapunto behind the bullseye. Measures 46” square. Unfortunately I didn’t win a ribbon (at the Kentucky State Fair 2021) but I love it and so does my husband. I have a place for it in a guest bedroom. Thanks for great instruction. I picked up a lot in your class.

Debra, your quilt is lovely and how wonderful that you got to share it in person with those who saw it at the fair and here, online! It does not need a ribbon to be a winner :-). Thank you for sharing it with us!

On a personal note, I always enjoy hearing when projects started in one of my classes get finished. If any of you are interested in making a Bullseye quilt, large or small, you can find the book here AND you can find my online class that includes the ebook on Creative Spark.

Sue Kersey sent me this photo of her Christmas Delivery quilt. I love the way she embellished it!

I got pieces of the pattern from a friend as she found it at a garage sale. So I did the best I could figure out and made it into a small Christmas quilt this last year during the pandemic. I thought it might be yours but it was not marked and I would love to know what it is called. Was it a book, just a pattern or I think you said it was a download?

To answer Sue’s questions, Christmas Delivery was never in a book. It has always been a downloadable pattern (click here to find it). I made mine into a pillow but, as you can see, it makes a wonderful wall quilt! Thank you, Sue, for sharing it with all of us :-).

Do you remember this post from July 28 where you saw the start of Marilyn McWilliams’s Bullseye quilt? Well, she got her flying geese border blocks made and sewn on!

I think the colors in the photo above are more accurate than in the photo below, but either way, this is a stunning quilt. Well done, Marilyn, and thank you so much for sharing your quilt with us. Can’t wait to see it once it is quilted :-).

Lap App show and tell…

Look at the cute Lap App cover and matching pillow that Janet made! She sent me this photo after watching last week’s Time Out. I think that using a small pillow with the Lap App is a brilliant idea—well done and thank you for the idea, Janet!

Janet does not live in the US and would love to hear about the various Quilting Festivals and Shows that take place in here, so on her next trip she will have a Must See, Must Do Quilting Travel Wish List. Feel free to leave a comment with your suggestions!

I will kick off the ideas with Quilt Festival in Houston. It is an experience that every quilter should have at least once! More than once is even better :-).
