I Get Around....

I put some miles on this weekend.
On Saturday with girlfriends and Sunday Elkhorn.

Our first stop Saturday morning, Hawthorne Hill Farm.
For the Rust, Ruffles, Restore! Barn Sale.
Here's Bonnie's website if you'd like to take a look.
Next sale August 11 & 12.
I can't wait!

Next stop, Cedarburg WI to the Quilt Museum.
There are 3 exhibits hanging.
Nancy Zieman's Landscapes,
Chicago School of Fusing and
Cheddar Isn't Always Cheese.
Needless to say the antique cheddar quilts.....my favorite.
A day with friends filled with laughter, great food and quilts.....perfect!

Early to bed for me Saturday night.
Hubby and I were on the road at 6 am Sunday morning
headed to the Elkhorn Flea Market.
The weather was cool and overcast
which made walking around, hunting for treasures, bearable.
Unlike the 100+ heat we have been having.

Or should I say what found me?
This hand appliqued quilt top.
Don't ya love the colors?
The yellow makes it such a happy quilt.
Look at all that white space for me to quilt.
OOOOh, I wish I knew the history of this piece.
All those perfect circles, exquisitely hand stitched.
This wasn't her first quilt that's for sure.
Maybe her last?

Can you believe June is almost over?
Lordy, Lordy, were does the time go?
The older I get the faster the clock turns.

Have a great week!
