My Quip – Sous Vide Time Today – Evolution Is Set – Tampa Lightning Gets Quilting

Well today is definitely a catch up day.

And it is a day to Sous Vide supper… The menu – Applewood smoked Turkey tenderloin with Tomato-Onion Chutney, Grilled Asparagus, Baked Sweet Potatoes, and a Green Salad.

This is what happens when the pollen count is so bloody high that I have to be cooped up indoors.

Evolution, our special Quilt and Wall Hanging Exhibit for MQX East 2012 in Providence, Rhode Island is now in four organized piles on the dining room table. MQX East 2012 is April 11-14 at The Rhode Island Convention Center in Providence. The Public Quilt Show is Thursday, April 12 through and including Saturday, April 14.

Andy is finishing his final review of all our 25 quilts and wall hangings that will make up Evolution. All-things-being equal, I will be able to group and package them orderly together for their trip to Providence.

Blue Diamonds is now on its way to Rhode Island.

I have been playing around with ideas for quilting Tampa Lightning. All-things-being-equal we’re exploring this quilting process on both our Longarm and Domestic machines, and a combination thereof. The 21 batik fabrics are each separated with a fabric of a beige light sand hue. The backing and separating sashing of Tampa Lightning is the same fabric that we used on our original quilt design NC the coast.

To see previously posted quilts, there is a visual Grid presentation at the bottom of the Quilts SB page. Move your cursor over any mini-picture found there and click to see an enlargement. Move your cursor to the "Q#" link to see the quilt's details. If the quilt’s title is highlighted in yellow or in red, it has found a home in a collection and is no longer available.

If you have any questions and/or comments please feel free to get in touch with me via Email Quilts SB.

Enjoy... Will let you know how the Turkey Tenderloin turns out.
