Charming Girls' Quilt Club Project - DONE!!!!!

The Wabbit Daze Gang joined Kelly's Charming Girls' Quilt Club challenge on my behalf and I have finished my project. Yes, my "1930's Black & White" quilt is finished! WooHoo!

I have to show you the backing - found 4 1/2 yards high on a shelf - PERFECT!

A "1930's Black & White" flimsy on my design wall - this baby was a ton of work!

The quilted "1930's Black & White" - whew!

On July 15th Kelly tagged all club members with five queries....
1. My favorite fabric:
I don't have one favorite; I like it all and seem to work with everything (exept Batiks)
2. The pattern I'm most looking forward to sewing is:
I have plans to work on a few more projects from "Simple Comforts" by Kim Diehl
3. The food that is my weakness:
Chocolate might be the obvious answer but I don't really have a food that I consider a weakness.
4. If I knew I couldn't fail, I'd:
In hindsight I wish I'd gone to college - always feared failure.
5. The best "Life" advice I know:
Treat others as you want to be treated.
