Busy Week

I am on the final lap of finishing up this commission - borders.  It will be a flimsy soon and then I have the backing/batt ready to get this sandwiched.  I hope to grab some time over the next few days to get this quilted as it is a busy week. 

I had some requests for local shops - sorry, you were no reply bloggers as you respond via Google +.  So here is a list:

The Joyful Quilter - Glenville, NY
Stitch & Time - Saratoga, NY
KC Framing and Fabric - Saratoga, NY
Common Thread - Saratoga Springs, NY
Log Cabin Fabrics - Selkirk, NY
The Yardstick - Cobleskill, NY
The Quilt Bug - Schenectady, NY

I have a Catskill Mountains Quilters Hall of Fame meeting down in Liberty, NY (2.5 hr drive for me) and we are to get heavy rains with the thanks of storm Nate - hopefully I won't be swimming.

Thursday I go to help with set up of the :

"Pieces from the Heart XII" Quilt Show

When this is all over - I am dumping a bag of scraps and play!!

Sewingly Yours,

Your commission quilt, what wonderful photo blocks, a lot of work there editing, printing, and the black strips set them off perfectly. Enjoy your week ahead.
