Well been busy the last two weeks working on the gardern, cancer quilts and getting ready for vacation. The red and black quilt picture just doesn't do it justice. There is more of an optical illusion quality to it. Went to a Vikki Pignatelli class last week that was really informative. Need to put some of it into practice. Also been busy getting ready for the Miami Valley Retreat in February. Think we have it ready to go . It's going to be a "Quilters Rendezvous"
