Here's a pic of a quilt top that I finished quilting and binding for someone. The top was hand pieced by her grandmother years ago and measures 62" x 74". The circles are all pieced (not appliqued). A very unusual looking quilt, I really like it!

Here's the second of seven quilt tops that I'm currently quilting for someone. It is of course the simple nine-patch, but I think the piecer did an excellent job in color selection for this one. The top was pieced decades ago by the customer's grandmother and it measures 58" x 72". Sometimes simple patterns make the most striking quilts.

I entered two quilts in the Arkansas Quilters Guild's bi-annual quilt show which is being held today and tomorrow. My wife and I went to view the show today and I found that I won two ribbons. I won First place for one and Third place for the other one. I was very pleased and honored! Especially since I really wasn't expecting to win anything since I knew there were a lot of entries. The show was held at the Laman Library in North Little Rock. This was a big boost for my confidence, since I started not to enter anything at all.

Here's some pics of a quilt that I have just finished quilting and binding for someone. It measures 73" x 82". The top was pieced years ago by her relative and was done in a "Robbing Peter To Pay Paul" block pattern. The scalloped binding was a challenge, but not too bad.
