Fair Results, Finishes and Fish

The picture to the right is a double wedding ring table runner and got a blue ribbon. Below is the heart quilt, a red ribbon. The house picture not shown also has a second place ribbon.



My finishes for this weekend. Quilting the 4 patch swirl from the QSC retreat last year. The picture doesn't do it justice. Its really bright and cheerful. I'm going to surprise someone who has been encouraging me from the start.
And a Love Quilt suitable for a young boy. All home spuns and a flannel backing with buffalo on it.





Here is another picture from our fishing trip. The trout in front is the 19 incher. The fish were so heavy I had to wrap the stringer around a stick to carry back to the camp ground.
More pictures later.
Trying to rest up today. Back to work tomorrow.

Home from NC

We are back from NC after having a wonderful time dispite the rainy and cool weather.

Here is a dresden plate quilt I will be quilting soon. It is one that has been on hold in the closet and I want to get it finished.

We caught plenty of large fish this year. One was 19 inches long. Our friends from Scotland learned and caught plenty of fish. They enjoyed the experience and liked our big fish fry.

This is a few hours of fishing, a limit of 10. :-) One of the few days where I caught my limit.

Give me your heart

Last year at fall retreat we were challenged to make heart quilts to bring awareness to heart disease. I made two. One is totally "free" - mistakes became creative features. It has lots of beads, and different items representing things used to correct heart problems.


The second one is three hearts in one.

Our friends are here from Scotland so I will be a little busy for the next two weeks.
Happy Stitching,
Frog Quilter
