Warm Wishes

Remember the "Warm Wishes" link from last week?
Well, one of my quilting buddies, pieced one for her son's wedding gift.
Didn't it turn out beautiful?
I'm sure the Bride & Groom will love it! 

Look at the perfect "love" fabric she found.

The chocolate brown color adds such richness.
And the striped inner border, a perfect accent.

At our August "Saturday Sew Day"
I demonstrated how to make bias binding
using my favorite "tube" method.

Doesn't the diagonal stripe bias binding add zing to the quilt!
Notice the perfect backing fabric?

Check out the bowl she made using
fabric covered clothesline.
Don't ya just love when a project comes together.

Last weekend we had a "family gathering" at my son's home in Tomah.
It was so nice to see family and catch up on their lives.
Hard to believe I'm one of the "old aunts" now.
Where have the years gone?
I was able to corral my grandbabies for a picture.
They had such a good time, jumping on the trampoline, playing whiffle ball,
and, of course, a water balloon fight.

 After all, isn't this what life's all about?
I'll leave you with a little campfire entertainment.
The beautiful voice belongs to my niece Ariel.
