Karen has gifting me so many things and I thought I'd show a small sampling of a few. They are by no means small as she gifts me quilt tops! Can you imagine letting go of this beauty after you put all that work into it?! When Karen sent me the top she also included the backing so I just knew that this one would have to be quilted immediately.
Drats the picture turned! I wanted you to see the backing. Perfect!! I took the last stitch on the binding last night, washed, dried and crinkled today. I talked with Karen about placing this one on Etsy. We both agreed we didn't know how well a Halloween quilt would sell and would we get back what we put into it. Any offers? Perhaps a Fall bazaar quilt for a school fund raiser?
The day before July 4th I ended up in the ER with diverticuliltis. Not fun! It took me down for several days. I did get several of my client's smaller quilts finished and mailed back out but haven't put together the photos for a blog post. So I'll go ahead and show you what I've slowly been piecing when the urge to just sit and sew strikes. This is another gift from Karen is her UFO called, "Come On-A My House" by Miss Rosie Quilts.
Here I'm standing at the end of the drive looking towards where the house will be.
One last photo of DH in his Toyota FJ40 affectionately known as the jalopy. We've been having a grand time cruising out and about the country roads of North Carolina just enjoying the ride and time spent together!
