Ribbons From The WNC State Fair

 I'd never entered the State Fair 
even though my friend, Joy encouraged me each year as she did.
That is until, Joy passed away and now
I enter each year in her honor.  
You can read about this knitted fabric quilted purse here.
 And this reversible Clergy Stole 
is for sale in my Etsy Shop.
 This is the reverse side.

 AND - this wall hanging also won a blue ribbon.
I'm so humbled and excited that my art found favor at the Fair.

Things Learned While Quilt As You Go

 1- Cut excess batting after joining rows carefully
so you don't have to add a tiny strip of batting later.
2- Stay at least 1 1/2 inches away from edge to be joined
and don't leave open ended sections.
Possible yet, there's lots of starts and stops and thread.  
 See photos for some of the many threads that will need attention.
3 - Consider somewhat larger sections to quilt
creating less sections to hand sew the back on later.
Overall - I would use this technique again.
Considering the title "Contemporary Saved Remnants"

Hand Made Rose Water Coconut Oil Olive Oil Flax Seed Oil Soap

Time to create more hand made soap and wait
the 4-6 weeks to allow it to cure.
 No scents this time since I find a pure and natural soap 
 quite refreshing.
