it's been a while

It's been a while I know but the weather has been wonderful and I don't get to the computer to blog or check out blogs very often. I love to garden and walk outside. My indoor time has been spent quilting and getting samples ready for demos and classes that are coming up and finishing up some designs that I am not quite at liberty to show right now. I did finish this little wall hanginng. It finishes at 6 1/2 inches. I think if I were to do it again, I might shift elements of the design a little.

I also finished up the quilt for my brother's retirement. He has a mountain cabin so the blocks in the quilt are log cabin and delectible mountain....I will be giving it to him later this month. I don't have a full picture of it but will try to get one later.

Kathy, at Serendipity Quilt Shop, is getting ready to move into her new shop and will soon have online shopping. The new shop will be bigger and better with more classroom space. Be sure to check out her site. My quilting buddy, Pat, and I will be doing some demos there during her grand opening.

Last Friday, I went to the Chantilly VA quilt show on a bus trip with one of my guilds, Delmarvelous....and had a marvelous time.

I'm heading back into my sewing room right now ....have to meet some deadlines.

Happy Quilting

Lovely seaside peace, your quilting is really a great touch. I'm not sure if it makes me want to run on the beach or sit in the shade with a cool drink and read a book. :-)

I love the seaside wall hanging. Just the thing to think beach and sand.
Your brother should just find the quilt perfect...which it is.
