Greetings everyone. Whew! it has been a whirlwind since last weekend. I had a few house guests last weekend and even a four legged one. Isn't he just the cutest? And he was so well mannered. His name is JD which stands for Just Dog. His owner, Pat, is a Marine Vet who had two tours of duty in Irag. What a wonderful time we had getting to know Pat. Pat is a friend/co-worker of my son David.
I also had a visit from my cousins from Florida, Vern (aka Sam) and Mike. It was a somewhat hectic visit since we had our two youngest grandchildren for the day. But everyone enjoyed the homemade vegetable/chicken soup, corn on the cob and Indiana tomatoes. You just can't go wrong with all of those fresh vegetables.
I actually have been very busy this week quilting, but in my haste a few of the quilts went home with their owner before I could take pictures. Those quilts owned my Nancy J from Nancy Js quilt shop in
Wabash, Indiana can be seen at quilt camp at Camp Tecumseh, Brookston, Indiana next week Sept. 10th - 14th. If you are looking to attend a great quilt camp I highly recommend Camp Tecumseh www.camptecumseh.org
The picture of the brown/orange quilt made by Cindy S. has such beautiful autumn colors and the oak leaves/acorn pattern I chose only enhanced the beautiful colors.
The last quilt made by Kathy W. has some beautiful fabrics by Camille Roskelley/Thimbleblossoms/Moda. It was such a pleasure to quilt this quilt with the Pearls/Curls pattern by Nancy Haacke.
And here's a little quilting trivia. Did you know that quilting may date back as far as ancient Egypt? And there is a quilt made around 1360 that is still in existence? Wow that must have been some great material on that quilt. The quilt I am referencing is called the Tristen Quilt and is in a museum in Italy. Kind of makes you proud to call yourself a quilter, doesn't it?
Blessings to all.
