Twelve Oaks is Finished

With thanks to the Phillies for getting into the post season, I've finished binding Twelve Oaks and will sleep under it tonight!  Branky did a marvelous job of machine quilting this project.  And at this point, I believe I like Twelve Oaks better than I did Melanie Wilkes.

Branky presently has The Farmer's Whatever and I'm hoping to have her back early in November.

Next week I have an appointment with a new local quilter; some friends have used this person been pleased.  They tell me her quilting is different, that it is done by computer, and I'm eager to see what this is like.  If I like what she does the first time, I'll likely use her services for some of my quilts. 

I have Itsy Bitsy still up on the wall downstairs and haven't made any progress all week.  You know how much I like setting quilts on point with lattice.  All in good time.

Meanwhile, tonight I'll sleep under Twelve Oakes. 

And perhaps dream of Rhett!
