Sewing Sunday

 Here is how I spent my Sunday. I finally finished the quilting on this. It's 62 x 62 and I think it came from a Fons and Porter magazine (??) 
 It's hand appliqued and it was N's first time trying hand applique.  I think she got the hang of it.
This is going into a show, so the plan was "lots of quilting"
My body can't take much more of this, thank goodness my next one is an edge to edge.
N is one of my special quilting friends, so this was more a labor of love. She deserves it and I think this quilt is staying in her home. I can't wait to see it hanging in the Guild show in August. I'm sure I'll post pictures again!

Hope you got to stitch a bit on the weekend, can you believe it's June already? Good golly, I guess spring is over, but were the heck is summer? Are you all keeping the warm weather to yourselves on the east coast?

and did you all see Victoria's BIG NEWS? Check it out!

The colors used in the quilt are very good. And good applique especially when I read that it was the first time.

Just found your blog while surfing the net a bit and I've enjoyed seeing the wonderful quilts that you show. I'll have to come back and read further. Always glad to run across a blogger in the NW. I was in Portland, OR a month ago visiting family and blogging friends--loved every minute!
