Weekend at Quiltville

My goodness where did this past week go? I was so stressed out last week that it was good to get out of town. I had so much fun sitting and sewing with Bonnie. Sewing with a good friend is the best medicine. She is an amazing friend to let me re-energize at her home for the weekend. I didn't take any pictures. Her home and sewing room are awesome. I worked on my Crush. Don't hate me but I got my top put together. I promised I wouldn't reveal anything. I will say this. When my 2 year old grand daughter saw it she said and I quote "I yike it" and she politely climbed up on it and smiled the biggest smile. I guess I will gift it to her. There wasn't enough time to do all the things we wanted to. She wants me to come back for a Friday through Monday. I would love to. I also got the machine part of the binding done on my basket wall hanging. I have been hand stitching it in place a little every morning before work. What was I thinking when I chose to do it that way and not make it square or rectangular? We were even able to do some hand quilting while watching a movie on HBO. Her son was so funny. He watched about 3 minutes and said I think I am going to my room. Of course it was a chick flick. It was an old one that neither of us had seen so we enjoyed sitting with our quilting in our laps watching and munching on mints. Chloe even came up stairs to say hello. She let me pet her and give her a good neck scratching on Sunday. On the way home my husband drove and I quilted some more on my other wall hanging for my office. I have unpacked everything but haven't machine stitched anything. This is getting far to long without any pictures.

Your basket quilt sounds intriguing! I hope you post a photo of the finished product.

I know what you mean about binding a quilt with "non-traditional" edges. Took me a month a little every evening to finish mine. And it was just a 1 block art quilt!

Those quilts below are breathtaking. Fantastic. I like that black and white, and I usually wouldn't like something like that. It's amazing.

I loved your post and was terribly jealous reading about your wonderful weekend with Bonnie, but what really made me smile was when you wrote, "I yike it". My two year old granddaughter, who lives in New York, says that too! She climbed up on my lap last month and looked at my coffee cup and said, "Grandma - I - yike - coffee - too. She pauses between each word ever so slightly before she says them and it so makes me laugh. Thanks for the smiles...
