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

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.
