My Candy Jar Quilt

Since retiring, I’ve been on a crafty kick.  I’m active on Craftster and was just appointed as a global moderator last week.  It’s like a volunteer management position in a global crafting community.  I saw a jaw-dropping quilt posted by a member and contacted her to tell her how much I admired it.  Now, I’ve made one of my own!  It’s a combination of piecework and applique (which I’ve never done before).  This is just the quilt top.  I’m going to take it into my quilt shop next month and get their suggestions on how to finish it.  I plan to enter it into the fair this year.

    That is a really cute quilt. It is very unique. It sounds like your are busier than when you worked….

    Thanks Sandy. :-) Yes, I’m keeping busy and chores are starting to multiply now that the garden is up and milking is in full swing. It’s way better than working…
