Is it Friday?

It's Friday and I haven't posted since Wednesday. Know how I know? My sister told me. LOL I didn't post yesterday because I really didn't have much to say. Other than it being Jim's first day of a 12 day vacation, it was pretty much a regular day. After going to the gym and fixing dinner, all I got done in the sewing room was joining some of my Churn Dash blocks together.

The picture in tonight's post is the DWR I made for Mom and Dad's 50th anniversary two years ago. Has it been that long?! Anyway, I just wanted to show you that I don't just make tablerunners! lol I used John Flynn's method to do this one. Quiltsmart is just so much faster.

Tonight I have machine appliqued the next set of DWR arcs to the background and am now adding the cornerstones. I really, really like this technique. My plan is to make a few more of them and have them at the shop for sale. Can I ask if $50 is a reasonable price? I have had a lot of ladies ooh and aah over them and some even hinted that they might like to have one.

The county fair begins next week and I still haven't decided if I'm going to enter some of my quilts. My first instinct is to say 'no' because I'm not going to be here on Saturday when we would have to pick them back up. I hate to make friends be responsible for that chore. Although, I do have several that wouldn't mind. So, if I enter anything, that means I need to get the binding on my reversible quilt and put sleeves on a few more. That, in itself, will probably be what keeps me from entering.

I better get back to those cornerstones. Busy day at work tomorrow.

As to whether that's a reasonable price - the answer is it depends. How does it compare to the prices of everything else quilty? Do people go there to primarily "window shop" or are they serious buyers? What is the clientele like? I don't know where you are located in the USA - that makes a huge difference. To me it sounds like too little. When I participated in Quilters Market here in Portland Oregon my table runners from complicated piecing like this sold for $95.

Beautiful DWR. I was wondering about the QuiltSmart stuff. I read about it in the Egg Money Quilts book, Eleanor Burns. I have the packet of "stuff" that goes with it, so I'm thinking I might try it and see how I like it. Addictive, you say? =)
