Life Is Beautiful

Life is Beautiful block #6
I have finished stitching block #6 for my Life is Beautiful quilt. Every time I finish stitching a block I say to myself "this is my favourite one so far"!

And this week my quilt guild is pulling off another miracle. They are building a show of amazing quilts! It really is a miracle when so many people make the effort to work together, to take an empty room and fill it with an incredible display of quilts. It is being held this Friday and Saturday in Guelph, Ontario, so be sure to come if you are within driving distance. Prepare to be inspired! Details are here.
And of course I am sewing on the hanging sleeves, which I always leave to the last minute and then am mad at myself for doing that! But still, I do it every time!

  2. Lovely "red" work... can you remind me what type of thread you are using for this? I am loving each block more than the last as well! This seems to be such a fulfilling project... Hope your guild show goes splendidly too :) Kathi

  3. I'm so glad of the reminder of the quilt show this weekend. I'd forgotten about it with all the hub-bub going on around here. I've never been to a quilt show in Guelph and am looking forward to attending on Saturday!

  4. And, every time you post a picture of one completed, I say to myself, "that's my favorite one, so far", too! Love it.

  6. I think this block is a stand alone - perfect. I was amazed when our guild did their little show (that turned out so large and went so well). It takes everyone pitching in though.
