Margaret's Strip Quilt

Margaret gave me this lovely strip quilt to work on. Generally these quilts don't have such lovely big borders, but hers did and she let me play!

I had just seen a new border design in one of my many books, so I got to try it out. Its very geometric and a nice contrast to the curved allover in the body. Here's a quick shot.

And the body has my usual heatwave allover. It certainly seems to be my "go to" design!

Thanks for looking!


Geesh--Sometimes I HATE Change!!

Its been a few months since my last post--actually, longer than that because I tend to schedule posts way in advance. I'm not very good at sitting down to do this when I should (gee, bet you're surprised!)

We are in Cannon Beach, Oregon, at Ecola Lodge for our 16th wedding anniversary.  Isn't it beautiful--or it would be, if the sun were actually shining!

King Suite with Kitchen & Fireplace

The plan was to do lots of hiking and checking things out; however, the weather is not cooperating. It rained and gusts of wind shook our cabin windows all night long. And its still going on outside. So perfect day to sit at my computer and update my blog while Dennis works on his stuff--we're waiting for the weather to improve. And then Google changed everything--took me hours to get into my blog again--thus the blog title!

More posts in almost immediately.
