You should be able to click on the picture and enlarge it. After it was together I realized that the side blocks might get cut off after it is quilted. Bummer. But I was ready for this to be finished so I'm not changing it! I'll quilt it early next week and pass it on to the Mid-Atlantic English Springer Spaniel Rescue for their fund raising. You can see part of the front here.
As I was finishing the backing I started sewing together a few 9 patches to use in the disappearing 9 patch that the local quilt guild is making for Quilt of Valor presentations in July. I need to make 7 more blocks, cut them and then sew the top together. Hopefully I'll have time to do it between now and the next meeting.
Wednesday I head north to Maryland to Faithful Circle Quilt Guild's biannual show. For the last 8 years or so I have gone up and spent part of the week helping at the show. I'll be back up working at the end of this week. I've maintained my membership but I don't get up there all that often. I do go to the retreats, sometimes I get to a class and a meetings occasionally. I figure working the show for three days is a good way to give back to the group aside from just paying my dues. It is a great show held in Columbia, Maryland. If you are near the area come for a visit.
I was a super woman this week on goals. I did way more than I thought I could but still have a little bit unfinished. (Really, was I that vague with sew rows together? What rows, which quilt?)
