Progress and a Favor

Hello friends! Thought I'd check in and let you know I'm still alive and still quilting! We haven't had a TV in our living room for a year but we put it back in there the other day, so last night I brought up a daylight lamp, put it next to the couch, sat my butt down with some applique, turned on American Idol and after watching it for 2 hours, I had appliqued a bunch of leaves and some hearts. Boy have I missed doing that!
Now for the favor part - a friend of mine, Laurie, is a finalist in a contest by Andover Fabrics, and needs more votes to win. She's currently in 2nd place so it's totally within reach! If each of you reading even just 'liked' her quilt, it would be a landslide victory! Her quilt is gorgeous as you can see below, and she absolutely deserves to win! Just go to THIS link, https://pinterest.com/andoverfabrics/your-andover-finalists/ and either 'like' her photo, or repin it, or both - everything counts! Thanks so much - quilty friends are the best!
*UPDATE* Wow my readers are the BEST! Laurie's 'likes' and 'repins' have jumped dramatically! She has a real shot at winning this - it's so close! If you haven't voted yet, please do!
