If you're here from Modern Quilt Guild, welcome!  I have a humble little blog here, but my love of all things quilt is strong!  So you can imagine my feelings, when earlier this week I received a Flickr mail note from Alissa- yes, that one!  You know, one of the founding members of the Modern Quilt Guild, the author of this fantastic book, and this one I can't wait to get my hands on...really, she needs no introduction - but for the person who reads this blog that doesn't quilt (Hi, Mom!), I'll just tell ya she's a quilting rock star I've followed and admired for a long time now.  I was about to fall off my chair pleased when she wanted to feature Racing Stripes on the 100 Days of Modern Quilting Week of Solids.  Thrill!  Here's a couple more pictures of the quilt because I just can't resist:

                                                                        (the back)
 So a giant thank you to Alissa and the folks over at The Modern Quilt Guild for being a source of encouragement and inspiration, and for including me in the process- I feel humbled and honored and you've made my day for many days!
And here's a sneak peak of things to come...

Have a great weekend!


  1. Congrats, it's a fab quilt, love all the colours :o)

  2. Congratulations -- and I *love* your quilt. I had actually seen it on MQG's "100 Days," but hadn't followed through to find your blog...and then you entered my blogiversary giveaway (yay! good luck!) and found myself here. You have a great colour sense, and I can't wait to explore your blog :)

  3. Yay, Valerie! It's so exciting, and a totally worthy quilt!

  4. Great quilt - and title. I'm loving solids these days too.
