DWM: a finish, lotto winnings, and next up

This was a busy week as I prepared the AAUW-IL financial reports (and trying not to get too confused by Quicken, which I have not heretofore used). The AAUW-IL summer board meeting was in Bloomington, about 240 miles from here, from mid-Friday afternoon through Saturday afternoon.  The board members are a collegial group and the meeting was productive.  I did sleep well Saturday night!

Good Cheer! is finished: quilted, bound, labeled.  Back, binding, and hanging sleeve used 2-3/4 yards.
YIKES! Did anyone look closely at the label? I wrote *July, 2012*.  I have now corrected it to 2013! 

I was one of three winners in the June Block Lotto.  39 tall sailboats will dock in my studio. Here are those I have received so far.  I have a commission for a quilt for a little boy (1 year old this summer). These 6 x 9 blocks will be ideal. 

The July Block Lotto is for novelty-and-bright houses. Here are my contributions. 
Next up:  I pieced the backing and basted Four Patch X, a flimsy from 2011. 
Check out what other quiltmakers are working on at Judy's  Design Wall Monday.
Have a great week!

  8. Love your Good Cheer quilt, the blue background really makes it shine.

  9. Good Cheer, indeed! What a wonderful finish for you, good job! I laughed WITH you about the wrong date, I'm still writing 19__ for the date on some checks, sigh! Every time I seem to be able to figure out the date, then they go and change it on me, LOL!
