Quilting on the go!

Aren't those stitches pretty?
I love simple cross hatching.
Since the squares are only 2"...
I was able to "eye-ball" the stitching lines.
Another PLUS in MY book!
I hand quilted this
and took it everywhere I WENT this summer!

I almost finished hand stitching the binding
at swimming lessons today!
YEP!
I fit quilting in WHEREVER I go!
;)
Since it's been so hot here...
I was really wishing I was the student in THAT POOL
Instead of the MOM with the QUILT on her LAP!!!!
LOL!!!


This is sure a SWEET quilt!
I can't deny these colors make me HAPPY!

The nice tangerine backing and green binding
are favorites of mine TOO!!!

Since this quilt HAS been traveling,
it's acquired a couple of little "spots".
I hope they come out with some soap and water.
Otherwise.....
This Sweet little treasure just might end up
BEING  MINE!!!!

  6. Beth, absolutely beautiful! My quilts have been to dozens of states before they finish and I think it adds to the charm! I can't wait to actually get to keep one of mine!

  12. I don't know how you managed dragging that around in the heat! What a lovely quilt. Even better with the hand quilting.
