On the Edge King Pillow, Clamshells, etc.

Just want to say right up front that just because I haven't posted anything in a month, does not mean that I haven't been busy busy.  First I finished my Hoffman Challenge entry and it was mailed and received on time.  Have not heard any results yet, but the website says that by August 1 2013 all of the winners will be posted on their website.  I also read that if you do win a prize that you will be notified my e-mail.  I check my inbox about every five minutes, but nothing yet.

I have also been doing a little work with Chantell.  I can post a couple of those items. One that is finished is the King Pillow cover created from one of her new embroidery "in the hoop" collections called "On the Edge".
This was made from one of my favorite fabrics; "Oh Deer!" from Moda by MoMo.   I have been hording it for awhile.  I made another pillow cushion from the same fabric, but I can't show you that one yet.

I also have another project that I have been working on that is not quite finished.  It really only needs to have the binding attached.  This was also created using one of Chantell's new 'On the Edge" sets.  Sort of looks like clamshells :-)
Both of these projects were done "In the Hoop".  Chantell really takes the extra time to make sure that her blocks stitch out pretty much perfect.  It is because of her attention to little details that make these blocks all stitch out so great.

I am keeping my fingers crossed that Hoffman will be e-mailing me any day to let me know that I have won a prize!  After the judging is finished, and the winners announced, I will post a picture of the completed quilt.  I think it is one of the best pieces that I have ever created, and I can't wait to show it off!
