Well, it may not seem like much, but in the middle of so many other things going on I finally finished the hand quilting on my untitled wall hanging! This project has been in the works for so long I can’t even remember when I started it. I also have the binding made and ready to attach and the quilt hanging sleeve! AND I know where it is going! Yes, I am very excited over this one!

So now I am off with my husband to check out the American Quilt Society’s quilt show in Grand Rapids! We are both so very excited to see what an international quilt show looks like. He doesn’t yet realize there is shopping involved….

Then Saturday, Saturday!!

I’m gathered with some online friends to meet in real life, for the first time. We will be making quilts for Margaret’s Hope Chest, one of my very favorite quilt charities. And it is actually based out of Grand Rapids, which is pretty cool! And to meet and work alongside Amanda Jean, of CrazyMomQuilts, is super cool! And don’t be jealous, green isn’t becoming on you…

Have a great weekend! I’ll see you on the other side!!

      I have to go and see when I started this one before I write a true finish post. It had to before before I started blogging, I know that… And yes, it is quite the accomplishment to cross that one off the list!!

      And the weekend was *wonderful*! I’m not even sure how to blog about it!


  2. I love the color and patterning – I greatly admire quilters, a craft I could never quite master.

    Popped in from’s SOF.


  3. How about ‘the planets’ as a title. It looks like planets with rings like Saturn or layers of the atmosphere around them to me….may e I have been watching too many science documentaries???

      You are so right! I am going to have to think on this to come up with something clever. The solar system isn’t my strongest point, though we do love to star gaze! Thanks for the suggestion, Bert!

    It’s beautiful. And good to see another hand stitcher out there. We’re definitely a minority group 🙂
    Congrats on the finish
