here we are at the end of the Quilt Along journey.
I hope you all have enjoyed this as much as I have.
The blocks have been beautiful and inspiring to view.
I am sure the finished quilts will be a delight as well.
Here is a close up of the quilting on my version.
I am hoping you continue to post pictures right up to the point your quilts are quilted and bound.
Did you have leftovers? I did!
Once all my pieces were cut I decided to use up the rest of my batiks on a coordinating project.
I cut everything into squares and triangles and managed to get them stitched together in rows before my life was taken over by Quilt Market projects.
I plan to make a table topper for the unit that is under my television in the living room.
I challenge you to make something with your leftovers!
Piece them into the backing for you quilt, make a pillow, table topper or wall hanging.
Go ahead, knock our socks off!
I double dare ya.
Now, back to my vacation...
We have been at the Oregon Coast
since we left Quilt Market in Portland
and have to go home tomorrow.
While we were here, we ate and ate and ate.
We created a couple of blown glass pieces.
Here is mine.
I intended to make a wine glass,
but this would take half the bottle
(I guess that isn't really a problem, is it?)
Watched a master glass blower in action
(I might be bringing home a couple of pieces he created).
We spent time with family and friends
(you know who you are).
We drove up and down the coast while exploring paths rarely taken.
Did some Whale Watching.
Ping Pong, lots of Ping Pong.
Toes in the Water.
Nothing soothes the soul like the crash of the ocean waves.
Well, I am off to enjoy the last of this vacation!
(and some more Ping Pong and Food).
So, Blog at you later,
