Inspiration & PhD 7 Day Count Down...

How is this quilt for inspiration!?!
Machine embroidery (something I've never tried) and applique... Click on the image for a closer look! 8-)
This is a gorgeous quilt that was hanging in the shop I visited in Kelowna.
"Linda's Quilt Shoppe"
Not much to see on their website, but if you are ever in Kelowna, I would definitely recommend visiting this shop... Credit card in hand... An easy 2 to 3 hour visit!!! 8-)

They have many a yummy fabric bolts to look through, and have a big classroom setting, through a hallway in the back...
Lots of wonderful quilts hanging everywhere!!! 8-)

Tomorrow, if time allows, I shall post the quilt to the left of this one on the photo...
Another awe inspiring creation!!!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Tis the start of the PhD, "7-days left", count down to the challenge finally date of June 30th!!!
For those participating in the challenge, I mentioned in this post, that I'd be having a giveaway for the participants of this challenge listed in my sidebar. More on that next Monday...

Participants; Would it be too much to ask each of you to do a post, to pop up on June 30th, featuring a photo of each of your PhD Challenge finishes? No need for a big write up... I will then link to each of them in my July 1st post for other bloggers to visit and "wow" at your wonderful finishes...

I had hope to finish at least 1 more PhD myself, but alas, it was not meant to be... Up to my earlobes in Socials, Showers, Weddings, life, family, and 2 queen size wedding quilts...
2011 can't come soon enough!!! lol! 8-)

Happy stitchings!
Myra

Happy sewing to you!

I'll be in Kelowna at the end of July. Hopefully I'll be able to see that gorgeous quilt in person.

Hmm, I can try to get organized and do a post. I tend to get chaotic with work at this time (literally, doing dishes and taking a shower are hard to accomplish tasks) but will if I can remember. :)

Hey Myra, I'll be glad to post my finishes! I'll have all but two done, those two are the ones I'm handquilting, and I just can't rush that. I will have my hubby hold up the backs so I can post pics of what is done. thanks
