Love Entwined Part #4 and new quilt.

I am trying to catch up with Love Entwined. I have the first Vase done and hope to get started on the second one soon.
All four will be a  different design..
My cousin and I like to get together once a week to catch up and do some sewing. We decided to make a quilt for a special lady. We both love string blocks, so here is the result.
I have it on the frame and hope to finish quilting it tomorrow, Bev will do the binding and then we will deliver it. It is just so much fun to sew with a favorite cousin :)
This quilt was at least two years in the making. I was never pleased with the brown in the center. One day my cousin brought her GoCutter down and I had this brain wave to cut a bunch of daisy petals...this is the result...Log Cabin Daisies :)
Here is the full quilt, quilted,  washed and on the bed :)

Trip South.

Too much outdoor time and holidays, and traveling. I have really been ignoring my blog. My sister and I took a trip down south, to North Central Washington, then back to Keremeos to load up on fruit. And of course when we finally arrived home lots of canning to do!

And of course we were loaded with quilting goodies from the USA :)
It was a most wonderful trip, and now we have had a gorgeous Fall and winter will soon be here. Hello quilting!
