Happy Beginnings

We've had a busy and exciting June.  First the busy.  

I don't know how many different patterns and fabrics I contemplated for this quilt. But once I found this pattern  by Hyacinth Quilt Design, it all started to come together.  With mostly some miscellaneous Amy Butler and other modern prints in my stash with an emphasis on oranges, grays and aqua, I finally completed this large throw  for my niece and her new hubby. Note the circle quilting. I wasn't sure of the best design to use with all the straight lines of the quilt, but Tina, my LAQ, was wanting to use this new design.  I think it works well, especially with the polka dot borders.   As usual, I was the queen of procrastination with this project but managed to get it done with a few days to spare!

On our way out west to attend the wedding, we had an overnight stop.  A few laughs with these little guys (who are growing up so fast!) and a short visit with their mama and daddy, made the remainder of our trip the next day not quite so long.

Wedding photos to come soon!

I've been bad about not leaving comments on blogs lately but I wanted to pop in and say that I do read your blog and try to keep up with what's going on. You keep busy as we all do. I hope you have a great summer and get to ride lots of places.
