Hubby and I got up early this morning and started out on a motorcycle ride for the day, beautiful and hot but having that wind in your face not hair cause we do wear helmets just nothin like it, enjoying what's getting close to the last lazy, hazy day's of summer. We started out going to visit friend's who have a camp down by Mohican State Park then we went to Landoll's Mohican Castle for lunch way back off the main roads in the woods what a beautiful place to enjoy the wildlife and each other. We left there and rode along the Mohican river quite a few people in canoe's and rafts leisurely floating down the river. I took the picture of Hubby while riding and the picture of the Amish buggy coming towards us what a difference in vehicles I wonder what the kid's are thinking when we passed them if you look in the mirror you can see me taking the picture we had a really nice day but my "butt" was happy to get home hope all of you had a great day whatever you may have been doing!

Well friends here is my first finished quilt I took it to Karen who helped me design the pattern and pick out the fabric to have her quilt it for me. I am so happy with how it turned out it's 74 1/2" x 85 1/2" the name of the quilt design is "popcorn" I choose just a white Moda muslin for the backing and the thread on back is rust color and white thread on front and I'm thrilled with it now I'm getting anxious to start a new one. I'd like to make one for each of my kid's and 2 grandson's that's the plan anyhow. I put it on my antique bed in the guest bedroom I think it looks like it was made for that bed!

I just completed my very first actual quilt top "am I excited" you bet I am...the blocks I have to admit I only made one of the them it was the block for our May meeting at our Material Girls Quilt Guild and I happened to win them if you make a block your name goes in the hat for all the blocks and I was the lucky one. I've had a hard time deciding what to do so I took them up to one of the girls in the guild who has a quilt shop and she helped me pick the pattern and fabric for the additional blocks and borders. The green border is by Deb Strain for Moda and the white border is IN LOVE WITH NATURE by Susan Branch for RJR fabrics. The name of the blocks is called Shooting Star made out of scraps everyone had we all have them don't we!! Now that the top is finished I will take it back to Karen, pick out the backing and get the batting wanted to do that today but didn't have time before the shop closed so will do it next week one day and then I will have her quilt it on her long arm think it will turn out to be a queen size. If your wondering why the green block is in there someone I guess didn't pay close enough attention to the directions of the block it was suppose to be a light background...oh well it turned out just fine and I love it!!
