I am a bit late linking up to Val's Tuesday Archives, but I was working today and had evening meetings. But better late than not at all.
The two themes Val has chosen this week are Animal Quilts and Award Winning Quilts.
I will begin with the last catagory. The Flowers on Green quilt, below, was made for our President's Challenge at the Tall Pine Quilters Guild a few years ago. We had to use scraps of mostly green fabrics. There were measurement requirements. My quilt is a wall hanging measuring 18" x 31". I made yo-yo flowers and used leaves from some artificial flowers. I had fun piecing the quilt background influenced by a technique in a book by Weeks Ringler and Bill Kerr.
I never expected to be the First Place Award Winner, but I was. It was an honor that has been bestowed on me one time. But I will persevere and maybe in some future year I will have another award for a quilt.
Now the other catagory is Animal Quilts.

fabric as the outer border. I have the pattern for sale
Work gets in the way of my quilting too! LOL!! I really love the Flowers on Green...it is a true Award winner.(I think it's the simplicity that makes it so stunning) And what an ingenious idea for a pool table cover! Serious! I have a fondness for 30's..so absolutely love that final quilt. Thanks for linking up and sharing!!! :)V
Love the Turkey you made with your AccuQuilt! Did you use the GO! Dresden die?
I used the Dresden die for the AccuCut Machine at the LQS where I teach classes. I don't have an AccuCut system at home. :(
