Pedal to the Metal

Or should I say .......the needle has been smoking! Pedal to the metal this past week & some very fun quilts! The flip-flop quilt is a raffle quilt for one of the beach communities off of Marine View Drive. I think maybe Spee-bi-da? If you are there on July 4th you can purchase a ticket for a chance to win. This is just the center of Betz' fabulous "PepperDish" . She took a class last year at the Sister's Quilt Show & wants to take it back to show everyone.
Chris made this fun quilt to brighten up her kitchen for the summer.

Jonne made her youngest grandson, Epson, this quilt for his 1st birthday. She'll be taking it to Norway, Epson's home , for the party.

I promise to update webshots today. I think I got distracted last week & forgot! See you later!
