This next picture is a 'blurry' close up view of the quilt. I do need to work on this type of shot. The border and backing fabric is a Judie Rothermel fabric which I absolutely love and goes very well with these Jo fabrics. Along with this quilt I also sandwiched my small pink and brown quilt to hand quilt also. With the Olympics coming I thought this would be a good opportunity to do some hand quilting in the evenings after supper.
On another note I will be leaving on vacation for almost 2 weeks in August. I have been getting a few quilt kits dug out to take and work on. I haven't started my "Web Celebration II" quilt yet so I will be taking it along with, "Victory Garden" quilt kit of Jo Morton's and her "Peppermint Twist" kit. For hand work I will be taking my blocks of the "Elegant Garden" quilt. That should keep me busy I think. Friday I mapped out some quilt shops we will be stopping at. The husbands are being wonderful about this so we ladies are going to take advantage of it. Two that I have picked out so far are "Mill House Quilts" in Wisconsin and "Main Street Cotton Shop" in Minnesota. We are going on 90-94 in Ill. to 35 north in Mn. If there are any shops you know that we should stop at, please drop me a note, the more shops the better! The other ladies that will be in our group also hunt bear and fish, I am the only one that won't, do you blame me? I plan on staying mosquito free by sewing all day in the cabin with my DVD's and my music. I imagine it will be pure heaven on earth. LOL
