Friends and Flowers Quilt
Yesterday I finished the body of my Mary Engelbreit Friends and Flowers quilt. I really love it and am glad that I spent the time drafting the pattern to suit my fat quarters. I ordered the fabric for the borders and the backing so it will be a little while before I can finish. The border is going to be black. I hope that black isn't too bold, but I do like the little bits of black that are in the line and wanted to accentuate them.
So today I need to get the house in order and pack for tomorrow as we are leaving to go camping for a week! I'm excited! It's a bit cold, but I just look forward to seeing something new. We are heading Westward. Also, on the way home we plan to stop in Melbourne to have a look at the longarm machine I plan to get soon to start my business. I hope to be up and running by September??? I can hardly wait.
