Happy Fathers's Day
I hope you are treating your men as they should be on the one day in the year set aside for them. My Dad is spending the day working on his home in Maryland. He's always tinkering around with something to keep everything in order and him busy. I sent a card with a Lowe's gift card earlier and I gave him a call today to see what he was up to. Sure wish distance didn't separate us so much...I'd be grilling him up some baby backs!
Not much new to share today. Kordova Klosure is complete...binding, sleeve, and label done. I'll be sharing this one along with several others tomorrow at a presentation that I'll be giving at Canyon Quilt Guild in Kearny Mesa, CA. Since this one is HUGE at the great suggestion of my Mom I'll be putting it on a quilt rack. It is the last quilt I've completed... didn't think I'd ever finish the binding around this 100" x 108" quilt. The pattern is Bonnie Hunter's Orca Bay design that was a mystery started in November 2011. It is one of the several string designs featured in her newest book that will be available in July or August. If you want to preorder a copy you can do so on her website www.quiltville.com.
Mom and I have been using some stash. The inner border and back were assembled for her Chunky Churndashes quilt and some to complete the third border of her Round Robin.
