Christmas with Friends

This is my DJ Christmas Swap block wall hanging. It still needs to be bound, but I wanted to publish here because I have signed up for a fall frolic swap that will be similar but with fall colors. I wanted those that are thinking of signing up to see what they could have :) and maybe that will get more participants! Great way to get beautiful DJ blocks from talented ladies (and maybe men) all over! So, come on and join the fun!!!!

Utah Fair Quilt Challenge Quilt

This is the quilt I am doing for the Utah State Fair Quilt challenge. Each year in September at the fair, you can purchase a fat quarter of the challenge fabric (the backing of this quilt). You then have until the next fair to come up with a quilt to enter. I have done this challenge with my friends Sue C. and Ruthie D. for the past 2 years. So, even though I moved to Ohio, I had to do this year's quilt. I chose to do a patriotic theme because my son, Tim, has served in Iraq in the Air Force during this year. We owe a lot to our men and women who are serving, so this quilt is for them! Now, just to finish quilting and get it bound by mid-August!
