A finish, and a business...

I finished the Buckeye HS Boys Baseball Fundraiser Quilt, and here it is. The quilting was done by a friend, Linda Sekerak. She has a son who played baseball at Buckeye and was SO Kind to donate the quilting!! I really like how it came out, but I am very nervous as this is the first quilt that I have ever donated to raise money!! I hope it brings in a alot for the boys!!

And after determining how much this quilt is worth, its only about 64 by 56, I was like...why the helk am I working when I could be doing something I love!! So I am officially going to start taking orders and doing this professionally!! I know it will be slow going and it will take time before I am at the level that I can "stay home" but its worth a shot to me!! I know many of the people that read my blog are quilters, but put the word out for me!! I would appreciate it! My name is also going to be quite simple, the quilting bookworm. I will keep you updated on my progress! And more blog posts coming if I want to get this going!!

And here are the goodies I won from my Golden Ticket.

Awesome Bag!!

A Dilly Dally Layer Cake, an Oasis jelly roll,

Petit a Petit Fat 8th bundle, and 2 candy bars in a decorative tin!!

Now what to make with it all?? I also started a pattern that I have had for at least 3 years. Its called Strip Poker (found at Fat Quarter Shop) and I am using Portabello Market (from 3 years ago!) as the material!! I love that material and wish I had bought more, but now there are so many other goodies out there!! And as my dear hubby said "You really need to use up some stash". I, of course, disagree, but I do agree that some of my unfinished projects do need to get completed if I am going to try to take in some business!! LOL!!

Hope everyone has a great week!!
