And More Aliens~~~~~~
Have you ever noticed that once you get going on a basic theme it is hard to tear yourself away from it? After my alien quilt I became known as the alien lady. Okay, not so pretty a name, but the goodies that came with it were great! My friends bought all the alien fabric they could find and gifted me with it. I received little gifts of alien heads, etc. In return I found suckers and candy shaped as aliens and gave to them. It has become great fun.
At our last guild show the challenge was to create a 9 patch quilt. I made some cute little 9 patch houses and gave them a twist. But how to finish it off? I wanted to place something alien in the quilt but couldn't figure out exactly what. That is where my many hours of watching Home Improvement re-runs came in handy. Wilsons, Hidey-Ho, Neighbor kept running through my head. That was just what I needed. I would have our worldly friends visit the neighborhood with there own Hidey-Ho. And another quilt was born. Isn't life and quilting fun!
