Hubby and I are back from a 5 day trip to Door County, Wisconsin. It was a beautiful area and a fun vacation but a bit different, the first time in 27 years that a summer vacation was just the two of us. Tell you the truth, it took me a day to adjust but we had a great time. I do think one or two girls will go with us next year on vacation, their summer school/work schedules just did not allow it this year.
On the road trip, I finally got around to hand sewing the binding on this rail fence quilt.
I am teaching this class at my friend's quilt shop, in a couple of weeks. It is just a 3 hour morning class in a workshop form. I like her method for classes, you leave with the knowledge of the technique. Then you can finish the quilt top at home.
This quilt took 2 jelly rolls, which in Free Spirit have fewer pieces than compared to a Moda jelly roll. For instance, most of Moda's have 40 strips of fabric, this Fox Field had 30 strips.
My quilt top was quilted by my local long-arm quilter. Some of you have asked, she charges per square inch.
I had just a few blocks leftover from this lap size quilt, so I made another baby quilt.
Another girl baby quilt for my baby quilt stash. I really need to get busy on some baby boy quilts!
