I have finally finished my dad's birthday quilt and since my grandson has been staying with us every other week I haven't been able to sew as much. You can't take your eyes off of him. LOL. We went on vacation to Cheyenne, Wyoming and had a great time even though it was very hot. The Frontier Day's Parade was wonderful. On our way home we stopped at Pike's Peak in Colorado, I do not ever want to go back up there. My wonderful husband let me stop and shop at about 6 to 8 quilt shops on this trip, I had a app on my phone listing quilt shops in our area and he would go find them and let me look around. Of course I had to buy something at each shop :) This quilt is a free pattern of Judy's at patchworktimes.com

"Let's Make A Diehl" this is what a group of us at our lqs "Quilts Bayou" is calling our meetings every Wednesday. We are picking a quilt out of one of our Kim Diehl's books and we are going to each make our own. Vonda one of the owners helped me by putting a kit together for me, since I am terrible at scrappy and picking out colors. I think she did a great job! I have my stems made for the applique borders and I will be working on that this week.

I have finally finished my sons quilt. I bought this kit from Bonnie Blue Quilts I think it was in 2006. I started on it about 2 years ago and it got put away. I am thinking about putting a border on it to make it bigger if I can find the fabric to match the black squares. My second picture is my haul from the Shop Hop that, "The Borne Quilter" out of Lafayette had this year. This was my first time to go and it was so much fun but very tiring, 8 shops in 2 days was alot. I didn't need anymore stuff but I just can't pass it up. LOL The black and pink bag was a prize I won at, "The Quilt Cupboard" in Morgan City.
Now I have to get up and make a dessert to bring to dad's today. He is BBQ for us to honor Labor Day.

I have bound 2 quilts this weekend and now I can start on something else. I made this quilt for my sister, her birthday is the 20th. Thanks to Beth from our local guild for showing us how to do this piped binding, I love it. Now if I could just sew a straight seam it would look alot better, I guess practice makes perfect. I found a tutorial on this binding at tlcstitches.blogspot.com. The quilt is made with jelly rolls and the fabric is from Fig Tree Quilts.
