Red White and Blue Pillow

I have been using my orphan blocks to make pillows for our couch. It helps to brighten up our room and our couch. I also like the fact that it is small enough to help me practice my freemotion quilting.

Ugly Quilt

I laid some fabrics out to determine which is the best choice for the border of this ugly quilt. BTW...I call it the ugly quilt because it was a part of an ugly fabric swap I did a long time ago. I am thinking the print on the far left is it, plus there's enough to go around the quilt. The other two prints in the center will have to go on the back to be included in the pieced backing.

Comic Con 2014

Every Summer Comic Con comes to San Diego and every year we go to check out what's going on downtown. There are quite a bit of interesting people walking around in costumes. The vendors and entertainment industries showcase upcoming games, movies, tv shows. The actors, writers and creative talents come together for various panels and interact with the audience. These are some pics I took that those who do not have a ticket can participate in.
The Nerd HQ has previews of games and other interactive activities like laser tags for people to do and a celebrity panel that benefits Operation Smiles.
