What a delight in the midst of a busy teaching schedule to finish a quilt!!
The laundry was hung out so I can repack for the next leg of my schedule.
The sun was shining on a pleasant fall morning
and so I adjourned to the circle of chairs for an hour of hand stitching to put the final stitches in the binding!
My main squeeze, Willie, showed up to supervise and enjoy my company in his domain.
It's so relaxing to just hang out together!
A first look at the finished quilt, spread out on the grass
demanded closer inspection before final approval could be granted!
"Nice job, Mary!"
The blocks that feature some vintage textiles are my favorites -- Instagram inspiration from @treehousetextiles!!
I think the pink pearl cotton big stitch quilting is perfect!
I hung it on the clothesline for some beauty shots but the sun was so bright it washed out much of the color.
So I moved it to the side of the "cowshed" -- right profile.
Straight on -- the breeze kept moving the bottom edge and I hope it's straighter than it looks here!!
This is my fourth finish from my list of six goals for the third quarter of the 2016 Finish Along!!
It's headed for the Mutton Hill Quilt Show in Akron, Ohio, October 22 and 23, 2016.
And it's one of the teaching samples for my new Six-Pointed Sampler Workshops!
Linking up to the third quarter 2016 Finish Along party HERE!!
