and a back view...


As I played with quilting something different in the narrow border...I thought it would be fun to "see" it-which is much easier on the back side! As you can see, I used up more of the various donated blue fabrics that worked. The binding was pulled from the binding leftover tub as well. I have a few bins of donated fabric living out in the garage for these charity quilts.. Now, it occurs to me, I could have taken a better close up of that top section to show what I was talking about...too late! this quilt is packed in the back of the wagon and I am not pulling it out. Besides, it's time to walk Zoe and think about hitting the road. It's a glorious day for a drive -and meeting a quilty friend at the end of the drive is even better!

I hand quilted spirals on the Dragon quilt and I just loved them. Mine were different sizes. I found them so much fun to do and I found them visually pleasing.

Your quilting is beautiful. It reminds me how much I want to do the wholecloth quilt. There's something so elegant to me about stitching on an expanse of fabric.

I hope you're having a great day. It sure sounds like fun.

The quilt looks great, Cher! Even better knowing its destination soon along with the others that the Portland Piecers and BoBos made.

I expect to hear more about the trip and the rendevous from you and Pam. I'll be home by 5 or 6 your time since DJ wants to drive straight back.

Happy Mother's Day!

Sounds like a happy day...hope you enjoyed it and had a great mother's day. The back is nearly as much as the back on this quilt!
