Tops done

Here are 2 of the quilt tops I made at the lake this week.

This first one was made with some gorgeous metallic fabric Phylis bought me.  I didnt even want to cut it, so left it in big squares.

And this little one I think will go to my friend who is in a wheelchair.  It is made from Moda charm squares and my own pink and green snow dyed fabric.

I worked on 2 other projects too.  One I wont be ready to show you for months.  The other one is the One Block Wonder (OBW) that I put borders on.  I have just a little bit to do to it and it will be ready for quilting.

And here are pictures of our “front yard” at the cabin.  This was my favorite cabin in the whole park.  Best view, best everything.  Except the water pump that made an awful noise every time the toilet flushed…sounded like a chain saw!   I had a great time at the lake, got lots done and needed to come home and rest up!  We dont sleep much when we go there.

As much as I love to go to the lake with the gals…. I am always glad to come home to Steve.

    What a beautiful place! I always feel the same about my craft weeks. It’s great to go but even better to come home. I love how you used your pink snow dyed fabric.

    Looks lovely but still a bit chilly…

    Love the quilt with the big squares. Sometimes the fabric really is just too gorgeous to cut.

    Glad to hear you had such a fun break.

    Hi Gail,
    Love your fabric feature quilt and how you shadowed the square. Would love to see it when it is quilted.

    Gail, do you know what is a good size for a wheelchair quilt? I’m thinking if I make some for charity, if they are too large (the way I tend to err) they might get caught in the wheels?

    Thanks,
    Christine
