Here it is, after the big reveal dinner!

It's great, and I love how it turned out.

I intend to add more quilting in the pink areas at the top and in the black sections, there is actually only a little quilting there.

Thanks to Joan, Jean, Jane, Barb, Amy and Denise!

OK Quilter's meeting

The meeting showed the self-portrait idea was a big hit! Lots of tops were brought in. Now we just have to quilt them.

We are supposed to continue work on this project and revisit the circles project idea. I want to start my thread play on the self-portrait, but not sure what I want to do with those circles just yet. I may start a second set of circles.

Now, my round robin group is about to do the big unveiling. Our group, the Friday Lunch Bunch, as I call us, is doing a UFO round robin. Basically, you hand over an UnFinished Object from your stash, one you may never want to work on again. While I don't have so many of these, I do have a few. I gave over a lime green and hot purple top that had these weird stack-n-whack hearts. I don't know why I did the hearts, I don't even like hearts.

We meet every two months or so to exchange boxes and we don't see what the final result is until everyone has taken a turn with your box. It's been over a year since I have seen this quilt, so I have NO IDEA what it will look like when done. This horrible picture is all I have of the "before". I'll get it back the 26th, during a dinner for the final exchange. I'll definitely post the results.

The other side of this is the box I have to work on before the exchange. Like the last box, I'm quilting this one. I'm not confident of my machine quilting, despite the new machine I have. Again, I am traveling for work the weekend before the exchange, so I have to work on it now.
