I made great progress on the antique quilt. Not only did I get the borders on I was able to quilt the top too. Next week I will get the binding on. I'm thinking of using the blue kona cotton from the back as it is a more pliable fabric. The green is from the leftover fabric and is surprisingly stiff. This was not a flat top, the blocks were bunched and pleated. I was happy it didn't pucker too badly.
"My bags are packed, I'm ready to go...." Well, at least my quilting bags are packed. I'll be leaving later this morning to go to Maryland. I hope to blog again tomorrow on my big adventure in DC. Yep, I'm not telling you what I'm doing.
I'm staying with Jenny and her family so I'll get some "grand" time too. Jenny's taking the day off Wednesday so we hope to do some sewing. Most of the stuff above is for my two scrap classes with Bonnie Hunter. I'll move up to Sharon's house Wednesday pm with classes Thursday and Friday with Bonnie Hunter. I may be totally pooped out by Saturday but I'm sure we're going to have a great time. I'll try to post a couple of times this week. I have so much going on this week there will be plenty to write and pictures to share.

I leave you with a gorgeous cherry tree in our yard.
And how about a closeup of the blossoms?
Easter Sunday was a beautiful day outside. I took a few minutes to walk around the yard since I spend way too much time in the studio. (Which, BTW, has a lovely view into the back yard.)
I'm linking with Patchwork Times and Monday Makes at Love, Laugh and Quilt. (Check back later, Monday Makes isn't up yet.)
