What I Did on My Summer Vacation

Actually, I just got back Wednesday from a week at a family reunion camping trip in Mark Twain State Park in Missouri. But since this blog isn't about camping I'll tell you about the quilt I finished yesterday while still on my summer vacation. 

I accomplished my goal. And I can mark off another UFO from my list.

I just did straight line quilting. You are not imagining things if  it looks like the lines are not evenly spaced.  Long story on that but I'm not going to rip out any stitches. The quilt is for me and I'm fine with it. 

The binding is scrappy. 

And the backing is muslin. Just like grandma used to make. 

Now, to finish off my summer vacation...I have toads in my swimming pool and wild raspberries in my daylilies so my work is cut out for me.

The colors look wonderful against the crisp white background. I particularly like the double churn dash block.
