I cannot believe how much I have traveled (by car) so far this summer! Two trips to Wisconsin. One for an amazing quilt retreat with some seriously talented ladies!! Like so talented, I found myself thinking "what the heck am I doing here??" More about that trip later. Then last weekend Scott and I traveled to Wisconsin for the marriage of Lisa and Nick Bongean's son. We had the best time EVER!! Again, more on that in another post.
Since I have not posted in over a month, I have a really REALLY good one for ya all!! "Portland Rose" is the final quilt for the book Flannel Gatherings by Lisa Bongean. Flannel Gatherings is available here. Lisa has been waiting patiently for this last quilt to do the final touches for the book. In my opinion, this quilt is spectacular. It may very well be my Michael Jackson's Thriller....meaning I may never top the quilting on this one. A little background on the quilt...it is wool applique on flannel. It measures around 105" x 105". Not small. I will share just a few photos. Wink. Wink. :-)
The girls have Competitive Team Dance Camp this week. I told them they could invite some of the girls over for the night. Now I have 6 twelve year olds running around upstairs. Again, what was I thinking??? LOL!! Gotta run!!
