This morning Shamu and I are hitting the road and pointing our way North East toward Williamsburg, VA!
I’ve got audio books loaded onto my MP3 player – love listening to “stories” on the road. First up in the queue? Stewart Woods thriller/mystery “Grass Roots”. Love a good one – no fluff for the road!
I got the binding sewn down onto Wonky Wishes last night during Quilt-Cam! Did you miss it? You can catch it in the post HERE.
I shared some interesting info on walking feet that you might not have known before, so be sure to check it out.
I’m sharing this photo just to give you a good overview of the STUFF that is used in this quilt! Just in this photo alone I spy a modern, a recycled, a 1970s calico, a zombie ((Ha! Thanks, Tonya!)) a chevron, aqua cow spots, millennium y2k, Christmas, a batik, and those horrid sun bonnet sues that make me crack up every time I cross their path!
This mix makes me a happy girl!
This photo is for my Canadian friends! I spy two flags, do you?
Close up of Quilting detail.
This is an edge to edge design called Je t’aime by Urban Elementz I love the texture, and how the stitching blends into everything instead of being a really distinct motif. Fun!
Trimmed and ready for binding!
I took my first “Deck photo op” of the season yesterday! It was a beautiful morning!
Even the back looks great!
And yes, there is Y2K Millennium fabric HERE too!
I’m sorry to say, there is still MORE Y2k stuff in the stash, and it will just have to get used up little by little!
My plan is to NOT bring a machine to Williamsburg. I’ve got 3 evenings to hand sew binding and just relax, and that is what I need…so hopefully by the time I come home, I’ll have TWO bindings completed – and there are ALWAYS ALWAYS hexies!
I'll be returning home on Sunday.
Have a great Thursday, everyone – this girl is hitting the road!
