Quilt show block...

 Last summer, I made a quilt block in celebration of the West Virginia sesquicentennial. I mailed it to the other side of the state and waited to see if it would be featured in the quilt that would be raffled off at the Mid-Ohio Valley Quilt Show this spring. Sure enough, it was!

My aunt and grandma went to the show {I don't think I'm going to make it} and submitted their blocks and quilts for review, too. Its pretty cool to think some total stranger is going to have a piece of me, a piece of my work. Grandma was beside herself last week that the organizers had a civil war reproduction quilt machine pieced! I was pretty disappointed myself, I think there are plenty of old timers still around, willing and able to hand quilt. Many hands make quick work, right?!

Both my block and Grandma's blocks are on the fourth row down; mine in the second column and hers last.
