Dad says he's the luckiest guy around--the whole country celebrates his birthday in a HUGE way each year--4th of July. When I was little, I believed him--heck, I still do! :) Here's to ya, Dad! (My daughter was down in SC visiting him--so thanks to them for the picture).
And while they were playing, I was back home sewing away. I'm trying to get samples done for the fall classes (my Open House/Quilt show is at the end of August)....here's some of what I've been working on...I FINALLY got the binding on my Grandma's Double Wedding Ring quilt. This is a top I finally talked her into giving me..I had it quilted by my Amish friend and then stalled for quite a while (I'm taking the 5th on this one! LOL) and decided since it's about my oldest UFO--I should get it done. and it finally is..hallelujah!
I'm playing around with my HQ16, aka Zoe, and am doing a modified Baptist Fan. Still working out the kinks, but it looks pretty good to me--and it's another DONE quilt! I'm donating this one to a local charity that supplies foster kids with basic neccessities and their very own quilt.Finally got the Tennessee Waltz quilt done--I named it "Vintage Paradise"--after the fabric by that name. It actually was leftover fabric from another project I was doing that got changed and I had a lot left. It's now almost gone! A great stashbuster for sure!
