Baby Bella's quilt

Finally, here it is! This little quilt has found its home in Jacksonville, FL where Baby Bella lives. I used the Yellow Brick Road pattern. I did the quilting on my Grace frame. I think I've got the hang of the stipple/meander but definitely need to do some practicing with free motion as you can see by my dizzy daisy. I did these free motion all around the border.

I know I have been missing in Blogland but l am busy as the proverbial bee this summer. We just got back from a lovely weekend on the Jersey shore visiting our good friends and the beach. The garden keeps calling to me and I must listen while the weather is lovely.

But I am doing some quilt related activities. I am meeting a mystery friend tomorrow for some quilt shop hopping and lunch. On Sunday I am headed to the quilt show in Lowell, Mass. with a couple of my guild friends. I also picked out my mini classes for Houston Market. I am going with my good friend and LQS owner, Diane in October. I hope to get to take a class with Billie Lauder.

I have completed my 6th blue work snowman block and I am plodding away with my pillow shams to match my summer quilt. Hopefully, they will be done before summer is over. I just don't have anything finished enough for pictures.

I really have to turn my attention to my Round Robin which is due in August. OOPS! It is August! Better get started on that!

Check back later this week for pictures of my shopping goodies and the mystery friend I met!

I think I can guess the mystery friend's identity. You two have fun!

You sound as busy and me. What is it about summertime? Things should slow down not speed up.

Looks good for a first time! I have been out playing with my mid-arm too. It takes a little while to get warmed up and loose.
