Dorito's Quilt

Lex love's my new Dorito quilt because it's personal. The saying on it says 'If I bury a bone, will it grow to be a Bones-I tree?' It will be hanging at the lake house on the breaker box cover with the dog leashes hanging on hooks below it.

B&W backing

As you can see the back of 'Black and White Lime Squeeze is quite bright. I guess all of the color from the front drained to the back. lol. The quilt is 80 x 86 so it's about the right size for a full bed. Why not make the back of a quilt as fun as the front?

Black and White Lime Squeeze

Here's my most recent quilt. The back of it is full of color - bright pink, purple, lime green. It was very challenging to quilt because I couldn't see where I'd already stitched with the white thread.

FPQG Quilt Show

The local quilt show was this past weekend. I won one first place and three third place ribbons. Seems I should have won two second place ribbons too. (1 1st, 3 3rd).
The first place was for a quilt I call Stepping Up. I had fun quilting feather designs on it.
The 3rd places were for a tote bag, my mini baltimore and the Hearts on Fire (same quilt from the H&C challenge.) These winning quilts can be viewed on foothillsquilts.com.
I was disappointed that my Black and White Lime Squeeze didn't place but happy that some of the quilts I quilted for others won ribbons.
