Well, I finally did it. Today, I completed the application to enter a quilt into the Independance Hall Quilt show. The show is in October and is held at one of my favorite places to visit, the Ironstone Winery in Murphy's CA. I'm kind of nervous but also excited to be sharing a very special quilt I just finished for my grandson. Here's some shots of it. Can't wait til October!

Isn't it colorful...so happy and childlike. I found the pattern, a Tammy Tadd Designs, in a magazine while standing in line at the grocery store. My eye was drawn to the 3-D effects in the kite pinwheels and kite ties. Some of those details are captured in the next few pics.
