Weekend Update... ... ...

More goodies have been finished! I took strips I won at strip poker at one of our quilt guild meetings and made a donation quilt.

I didn't have enough of the leftovers to do a border. I may run by the LQS and see what they have. It's only 36x36 so it would need to be a bit bigger for a lap quilt.

I also took some of my twin quilt leftovers and made myself a calendar cover from this tutorial. I didn't follow her directions for doing strips on the front, but I did what she said about how to put it together. I bought this calender and then wondered why I never wanted to put it in my purse. Well, it was ugly!
Here's how it looks on the calendar.
and opened.

Oh, and I came across a wonderful event going on right now. My friend Michelle over at Quilt Matters posted today about an online Quilting Conference going on at WillowBendCreations.  It's called Inspired to Quilt, and there are little classes, vendors, quilts to look at and it's all online! I've already got a minky scarf I've watched them make that is on my list. Check it out! And if you've got a minute, check out Michelle's gorgeous Don't Worry, Be Scrappy quilt. It's in this week's Quilting Gallery contest (Scrappy Triangle Quilts).  I know she'd appreciate the votes and it truly is gorgeous. Check out all that FMQ; I'm so jealous!

Hope you're having a fun weekend!
