Supernova Progress

T's Supernova is looking great, all blocks complete, and one border on.  She manages to get here about once a week, so progress is slow.  But... I think the quilting bug has bitten...she has found a blog that will teach her some basics (never mind that I have library of quilting books!).  I think it is fresh modern fabrics that she is drawn to.  And she has hauled out about 30 fabrics, and has made the first block. 

Only a week to go to our National Quilt Festival!   I'm really looking forward to this event, especially meeting up with far-flung quilting friends.

Today is a good day.  Daughter here, working on last Supernova block.  We were a little short of last fabric, so had to patch together the leftovers, looks OK.   Sad news, we lost the best cat in the world last week - a beautiful tiny tabby-point Siamese, 14-years old caught a nasty virus which just chewed up her lungs in 3 day.  She purred to the very end.
