Free Motion Quilt Challenge August 2012

I have been otherwise occupied here for a while now, and not able to get to my quilting,
However I have done this months quilt Challenge inspired by Wendy Sheppard of Ivory Springs, who is our tutor for this Months August Challenge. 
A very Special thanks to Wendy, whose wonderful quilting I have also long admired!

I did this small piece the other day in a quiet space of time.

I have staying here with us a lovely young lady from Canada BC staying with us.  The is Andrea's exchange student...and will be with us for another 3 weeks.  So as you can imagine time has been busy, and really great...plus Andrea has been ill and at home for a week and a half too. So more school to catch up on!

This weekend we celebrated Andrea's 16th Birthday and we had some of her friends over for the night.  It was great fun for all of us.
These are some of her school friends, and Caitlin too... I couldnt fit the others all in the photo.. but this gives you the idea.

We will be busy the next two weekends, so I dont expect to be getting any where fast with my quilting for a bit longer yet.

Till next time.....soon I hope :)

Your jester's hats turned out well. They certainly have been more difficult than it would appear. Enjoy your time with your exchange student - I so well remember the exchange students we hosted when my son was in high school, and what fun it was learning about their cultures and showing them ours.
