Weekend Recap……….

And it was GORGEOUS!!!! The weather we have all been holding our collective breath to experience!!! So, off to the river and the camper we went. We spent time with friends on their pontoon on the Mississippi—glorious! And just sitting…………………


Yup, DH is ‘caught’ again, with moi behind the camera!!!!

The client’s quilt I had been quilting (here) went “out the door”…005


This was one of those super relaxing quilts to stitch. The “Trailing Vines” motif is so very flexible and fills even the most awkward little spot. Now, it’s on to the next (client) quilt.

I’ve dubbed this the “I Love Lucy” quilt for very obvious reasons……….007008   The backing is super appropriate…009   Now, just what to stitch??? A sketch/doodle or two……010

Thread will be Aurifil (top) and Connecting Threads Essential Pro Poly (70 wt) for the bobbin. Stay tuned……….

    Yes, I’m a bit behind again…ugh..name of the game for me these days. I so love the first quilt – that purple and green fabrics are gorgeous together…Maybe it was a layer cake that she did HST with. Either way, your quilting brought it to life!! Gorgeous.

    I’m so glad you were able to be outside enjoying the beautiful weather! Wasn’t it last year that the flooding kept your from getting out there?

  3. What a great weekend to be on the river. Unfortunately, we were stuck in our basement mostly, trying to finish that drawn out project.

  4. have you seen Dusty Farrell’s or Jamie Wallen’s heart vines? I think those would rock. Similar to yours only the vine doesn’t go thru the heart. This is a panto, but could free hand it easy enough: http://www.digitechpatterns.com/product_p/dfpanto13.htm

      That one is a “keeper”!!! I just “Pinned” it! It would have been a very good design. Thanks for sharing it (for the next time…….). Hugs………………..

    Nice weather, good friends and a relaxing weekend, what more could you want?
    Those hearts will be a great basis for the I Love Lucy quilt. It will be a really fun one to do. I watched Lucy and Desi in The Long Trailer only a few days ago. It never ceases to make me laugh out loud. 🙂
