iPhone-o-Gram! Stretching my legs!

I crossed over the Georgia state line just a bit ago – Time for a walkabout and a leg stretch!

I am at the Lavonia antiques market off of I-85. --Always good for a wander and a rest stop.

Aisles of goodies to browse through – and even found a wonderful simple quilt to drool over!

This Goodie is hand pieced, has a plain muslin backing – and is hand quilted. But the maker was showing off their machine stitching skills by turning the back to the front for binding and stitching it down by machine!

I absolutely love the row of half blocks at the top :-)

Love the colors! Don't you know that Clemson country is just across the border in South Carolina? :-)

Go, Orange!

I'm just as surprised as Sue ... it's a beauty! I think Shamu would like it - maybe as a cover for the back seat? Of course, I think Shamu would share it with you, once you get back home ;)

Great finds!

Sorry Sue, I posted my comment in the wrong spot and then deleted it and moved it down :)

Looks closer to a Florida Gators quilt.

I just finished sewing the last seam in my version of your Easy Street mystery quilt. It's in Christmas colors and is named 34th Street, after the movie.

Thanks Bonnie, for all your mystery quilt-a-longs, and all you do for us. You are the best!

I think it's a FL Gator quilt too, there are lots of Gators in GA.

Love the mistake in the lower corner...the block is turned wrong! Must have been distracted!
