Five Finished by the End of July!

My fifth project for Peg's challenge is finished! I'd made the blocks for this quilt over a long period of time -- not because I was postponing, but because I was enjoying the process of making them so much that I didn't want to finish. I did get the blocks finished and set, and sent it off to Kat to quilt last winter. She did an exquisite job, and it has been sitting in my WISPs pile for several months.

My #5 goal was to make and attach the binding and the sleeve. And I have done so!

If Peg had not started this challenge, I don't imagine I would have finished all these projects. I'm so glad she did!

We leave for vacation on Thursday morning and there is much to be done before then. I doubt I'll have an opportunity to post again until at least Saturday. We are heading to Niagara Falls where we'll spend two nights in a B&B and then down to the Chautauqua Institution for a week, then a night in Ohio with friends before returning home. Stay tuned!

hello Nancy! Thought I'd check in to see what you've been up to...well, the grass has never grown under your feet, my friend. This particular quilt is so beautiful, I almost have no words. Will we see it hanging in the office (hint, hint, fingers crossed)?

Enjoy your time away--see you soon,
