Christian's Quilt is Finished











I finished Christian's quilt on Monday, washed it on Tuesday and now need to get it mailed, the shower is June 8th. Sure wish I could be there.I had to stand on the bed for hubby to take the pictures, there is no where else with enough room in this motel. We have 2 rooms, but both are pretty full.In the " living room" I have all my sewing stuff.... I have been able to sew 3 days this week and that has been so good.Our event got rained out today so I have been working on a table runner.That was a little more involved than I expected, but it is turning out pretty good. I am making it out of batiks and I don't like to sew ( nor handle) batiks. I also seem to detect an odor that I don't like???? OK, I know I am crazy, but that's me.... I do plan to make Christian another quilt when I am at home, and all my sewing things are close at hand. I am finding it very difficult sewing " on the road" I never seem to have what I need, and buying more seems like a big waste of money. BUT, I sure have enjoyed sewing this week. FUN,FUN...VBS...
There is a lady that works at this motel ( she does breakfast) , she is a quilter and works one day a week at the LQS here, she has been so nice, and has brought some of her quilts for me to see. She is very good. She was really complementary of my quilt also. It has been fun having someone to talk quilting with. I think she and I will probably keep in touch. She has a daughter that lives in Charlotte. Maybe she will come visit me sometime.
I am going to get up from here and get ready for my day tomorrow, hope all of you are enjoying good weather and busy quilting memories. Later, Bobbin

I love the quilt! It really turned out cute. Did you applique by hand or machine? I like the quilting job too. We just got back from visiting our new grandson, Jonah Scott. He is adorable! I will post a picture soon. I am too tired to think tonight, so I need to go to bed. I see from your schedule that you were/are in Palatine IL today. An aunt of mine lives there and maybe a cousin too.
