Planet Patchwork EQ Design Contest

It doesn't take much to excite me but I just checked Planet Patchwork and one of the quilts I submitted for their EQ Design Contest won third place! I'd like to make this quilt for my entry to the AQS Expo but .. that may not happen unless someone wants to loan me a few hours out of your day! :) I didn't get anything entered for Paducah. Oh . . the Road to California show starts today and this is the quilt that was entered there. It didn't win a ribbon but at least it was accepted so I am happy about that. The Circle Lord order is supposed to arrive today and I'm busy trying to finish a huge customer quilt so I can play! Snow is totally gone and it's a gorgeous day. It is really hard to believe we had a snow day yesterday. Ribs are in the smoker as it is supposed to start raining this evening and rain off and on through the weekend. Can't smoke in the rain because I don't have a covered patio in the back yard. Judy


  • both beautiful quilts Judy-although I realize the EQ5 one is on paper only! wish I could send you some extra hours-that quilt deserves to become an actual quilt.
    I am doing the crockpot version of sweet and sour pork ribs today-as we don't have a smoker and it's just too iffy with rain around here lately-Cher

  • Love the EQ5 design. The interlocked diamond border really makes it... Hope you find time to play for yourself...

  • I'll trade some time for your cooking, how's that? Everyone else seems to get my time, so why not you? LOL! Love the designs and how crisp everything looks. Congrats on the third - do you win anything other than the recognition?

  • Judy,
    The EQ quilt is YUMMY! I'd love to see it made up for real. If you don't make it this year, you can always go for Paducah or Nashville next year.
