Baby Quilt for Emily

I made this quilt for Emily Andersen.  I work with her and she is having a baby boy in June.  We are having a shower next week, so it needed to get done!  It is a strip paper piecing class that I took online.  I think I like this technique and might try it again.

I received a letter from AQS yesterday and both of my quilts, Supernova (Bargello) and Cactus Flower have been chosen as Semifinalists for the Des Moines Expo.  They will be displayed with 230 other quilts from 41 states and 7 foreign countries.  I feel very honored that they were chosen to be included in the contest.  I now must put sleeves on them and get them ready for the trip to Paducah, Kentucky.  The show is the end of September.
