We spent a week in FL. A little R & R and a chance to get away from the cold. This was our view from our hotel room.

If you have been looking for a nice way to help support the community - and get a special gift for yourself or someone you love, now is your chance. Raffle tickets for theQUILT Inc. (Quilters United In Learning Together - Delmar Chapter) has a wonderful quilt that will be raffled off in April 2013. Now is the time to buy your tickets! The quilt is spending about a month at many of the area quilt shops - I believe it will soon be at Joyful Quilter in Glenville.
Here's a sneak peek at the raffle quilt:
The ladies did a wonderful job with the piecing and hand applique. You can check with the guild ladies for the current location - www.quiltinc.org So grab your tickets and cross your fingers and maybe you will own this quilt before the end of April!
"Hawaiian Dawn" at the QUILT Inc Delmar quilt show in April 2011 where it won Best of Show, Best Machine Quilting, and Exceptional Merit.
This is a picture of me in front of my quilt "Hawaiian Dawn". It is my original design created after attending classes with Ricky Tims. This quilt has won several ribbons including: two Best of Show; Best Machine Quilting; Exceptional Merit; All Original Work Special Merit; three First Place, and two Teachers Awards. And this is probably one of the few times you will see my face in this blog!
Hi! My name is Laurie Collins. I've been quilting for about 25 years - which means I must have started when I was four since I only admit to being 29! I'm a longarm quilter - trying to make the world prettier one quilt at a time!
