Another finish

I just finished hand sewing the binding on this quilt last night. Then I washed it and ran it through the dryer to give it the "crinkly" look. I think this is my new favorite. The top was pieced back in January. I've had it back from the quilters for quite some time, but have waited to bind it. It is a wedding gift for a friend's daughter. I hope they like it as much as I do! :)

Of course it wasn't open yet, but here is a photo f Eleanor Burns' shop in Paducah. We did stop at Hancocks of Paducah, but I didn't take a picture on this trip.

We spent the night in Paducah on the way to Tennessee. Of course, nothing downtown opened until 10 am, and we really wanted to get on the road before then...

Ok..... this is an experiment........ let's see if it's any bigger from flickr....... :)

Back from Tennessee.... well, that was awhile ago...

I have some issues with Blogger...... I suppose it's just me, but I have a lot of trouble posting pictures, getting them to be the size I want, and in the order that I want. We'll see how this goes...Ok..... see what I mean? That picture is way smaller than I want it to be.... It's the van from the TV show "American Pickers". They passed us on our way home from Tennessee. We were back in Iowa; down by Waterloo. Ok, I am going to leave this as one post. I will probably post again today......

Charisma top before borders

Here's another one I worked on this weekend. It will have borders.... I am thinking a rusty brown inner border and then maybe one of the bigger prints from the Charisma line for the outer border. The only trouble is, they are hard to find - well, I should say the ones I like are hard to find. I'll have to keep my eyes open....... :)

Black and white windy day

not the greatest picture, but you get the idea! It was really windy when I was trying to take the picture.... I just noticed it's rather blurry and out of focus on the left side.... this one is going to the quilters tomorrow. The backing is black with white polka dots.
