Salute the Stars- 2014-Bloggers Quilt Festival

I am excited about joining the Bloggers Quilt Festival hosted by " Amy's Creative Side".

                       My entry  "Salute the Stars" is in the Large Quilt Category

Machine pieced and quilted to share at my quilt guild xmas party, our party was cancelled due to inclement weather last year and was I disappointed.

The quilt measure 52.5"x70.5" and is made using various quilting cottons.

You can read about one of the star blocks in this quilt called "Annie's Choice" here
Thank you to Amy for hosting the festival and to the sponsors for their generosity. 
Now  relax and enjoy viewing and reading about all the quilts you see.

I am linking this post up here and  here


Peace, love, and art.

Great News

I had totally forgotten about  Sheryl's "Craft It Now"  book giveway that I entered. You can imagine my memory lapse when I received the email. 

 Sheryl set out in January  2014 to take one photo a day for a year. She has a lot going on and I will share more with you when my book arrives.  You can find her blog here 

This is what she wrote:

Hi Angela,

You just won my "Craft it Now" book giveaway! If you could give me an address where you'd like the book sent to, I'll get it off in the mail this week.
Thanks for entering and I hope you enjoy the book!
I've been trying to email you. I hope you get this!


Sheryl Hastings

A wish for happiness to all of you on Mothers Day.

Peace, love, and art,

Memphis Rocks (a special blog post)

Historically Memphis gets it's name after the ancient capital of Egypt on the Nile river. Founded in 1819 by John Overton, James Winchester, and Andrew Jackson,  Memphis has it going on  many ways.  

One of the Best things about Memphis is the Food.

Most agree that our Barbecue ribs are #1

  And we have a place in Music History.

Known as the "Home of the Blues" and the birthplace of  Rock and Roll.

  We have a place in Sports too. We bleed blue with our UofM Tigers
And a "hunk of burnin" love for our Grizzlies
I am proud to say I live in Memphis. Memphis Rocks.

Peace, love, and art.
