Every once in a while I do a quilt that just seems a little more special to me. This is Stars for a New Day, which was a block of the month kit sponsored by The Quilt Show in 2009. Several of my friends purchased the kit at the 2008 International Quilt Festival in
. I think three of us finished it. I knew I did not have the machine quilting skills to do it justice and paid a professional quilter to do the work for me. She did a masterful job and I am very pleased with the results. Every time I look at her work, I am inspired to keep practicing. Houston
The Texas Hill Country has had an extremely dry fall and we are already listed as being in a severe drought. Last week we had our first shower in many weeks. It was good to see water flowing through our rain chains.
