I was able to finish the hand stitching on the binding of the "Love" quilt, but it still needs the sleeve stitched down. Time for handwork around here is severely limited!
I finished a couple of customer quilts I thought I would share with you though. One of them is a string quilt belonging to Bonnie at Nap Time News I talked to her on the phone about this quilt and the fun butterfly blocks she included in the back! Hmmmm...something about them being in a box under her grandmother's bed? Do I have that right? She might have to jump in and comment here. I think it is a wonderful way to use orphan blocks, especially ones with meaning!
I've posted about my customer Jacque before. He handpieces EVERYTHING! This is another one of his fabulous quilts. The fabrics are fairly busy, so I'm showing you detail of the quilting on the back of the quilt. Way to go Jacque!
I'm off to the office in a bit. I'm just working from noon until 4 and then I'll be back home to load the next one on. I'm feeling under the gun! The days are passing so fast.
This coming week my friend Randy is arriving from California...on Wednesday! Thursday she and I are headed for a "Just Stitchin" retreat at Camp Gravatt, SC. The retreat ends Sunday, and the two of us are taking off like Thelma and Louise and heading down to Charleston for a couple days to do a lot of touristy-girly stuff! We found a really affordable town house on vaction rentals by owner! Our little town house is a mile from the beach, 6 miles from the historic district of downtown Charleston. Whooowhoooo!
