So is a quilt a quilt if it's not on the bed?o

I think art quilt artists and traditional quilters can argue this until the cows come home. To me it's a quilt if it has the 3 layers, whatever those layers may be.

I once took a class from a woman that kept her quilts in a locked safe. The teacher was Judy Cloninger and her quilt Shiraz was picked as one of the top 100 quilts ever made. I guess I couldn't blame her. The intricacy of the design and meticulous way it was put together would possibly make me want to let no one get their grubby paws on it-cause you know there are some quilters that can not restrain themselves.

This is my cat quilt that won a blue ribbon in the Kentucky State Fair and was accepted in Paducah. I like to rotate my quilts so they don't get permanent creases in them from being folded.

Part IX-2 newer quilts that are cut out and need sewingget

Did you see this fabric? It's the Wizard of Oz, of course, and I couldn't resist. I had big plans for a baby quilt, but, you know, life gets in the way and I'll get around to it. I am so blessed!

This is another project that I've cut out. My mom already did this one too. I don't have a picture of it, but, when I do I'll let you

Part VIII-UFO's that are pretty darn close to finishing

The story of my UFO's continues. Hmmm, now should I count them, I don't know. My theory is, they never go bad on the shelf and I'll get around to completing them. Some are closer to being finished than others. I've got 3 quilt tops ready to be quilted, so I don't count those, except for the fan quilt from my father, which, in the time I've been writing these posts, I have completed! Yeah me!

So, here is a kingsize pink and brown quilt. I've made postings about it on the blog, you can click on the label for it to see the process. Whenever I need to use up a color of fabric, I'll add a white on white to make a scrap quilt out of the colors I've chosen.

This is the Flight of Swallows quilt that I've posted as well on the blog. I just need to applique the birds and baskets on the borders, then quilt it.
