Then my laptop froze up, giving all the symptoms of a dead or dying hunk of junk! Luckily, my wonderful IT guy was able to fix the problem and restore this baby to good health - yahoo!
So what have I been doing? Well, I went to the San Mateo County Fair to see the quilt show. I had 3 quilts in the show and many members of the guild did also. Here's a sampling.
Two of my quilts in the modern quilt category:
I won an Honorable Mention in the Modern Quilt Category:

My friend Jaye's quilt called Fresh Fruit. She won an Honorable Mention for this beauty.
It was nice to see so many modern quilts in the show. This was the first year that the organizers had a category called "Modern Quilts" (humming Times They Are aChanging).
The other project I've been working on was the Schnitzel & Boo Mini Quilt Swap. I didn't have a lot of info from my partner, so I jumped in with both feet and an + and X mini quilt, using the Sew Retro fabric as my guide:
I thought I'd make one big block for the back instead of a plain back so that my partner can use the mini quilt any way she chooses. This morning I made up my mind about the quilting and will get started shortly. My partner is international (I think it's o.k. to say this in my blog!) so my mail date is coming up. Also, I have to get this done prior to the movers showing up and rolling me out the door hanging onto my sewing machine!
No progress on the last 6 Steampunk blocks. They will have to wait until I get relocated.
What are you working on?
Aaaaanyway, that's it from the Robertson household.
