Sew & Tell Friday #23

AKA Blustery Day!!!
The sun is finally shining, but it's quite windy.


Are y'all getting tired of seeing this quilt yet?  The Feeling Groovy quilt top is finally complete!


The quilt would not stay still for a picture....reminds me of when my kids were little ;-)


While taking this picture, the wind almost blew it into the pool!!  That would not have been a good thing.  That's all I need... for the chlorine to bleach out the batiks!!


Here's one last shot.  
I'm taking a break from this quilt before the quilting part.  My kids are on spring break so not sure how much sewing will get done.  I'll have about five days after the break to quilt this before the auction.  Still trying to decide on how to do that.

Click on the Sew and Tell button to see all the creativity for the week.

Have an amazing weekend!!!

  2. It looks great "Blowin' in the Wind" - channeling Bob Dylan, just perfect for this quilt! You really put that together fast, like Thelma says, and preparing for your open house as well! I think you did a fantastic job and I look forward to seeing the quilting. Have fun with your kids on spring break!
