Happy Birthday Dad!  It has been an incredible past couple of weeks for my parents.  First the 5.8 earth quake that's pretty much unheard of in Maryland.  Second hurricane turned Tropical Storm Irene hits the eastern coast; putting them without power/phone/cable/
Internet for nearly two full days.  Mom's Birthday and their Anniversary on Monday.  Finally today celebrating his Birthday.  Wishing you many, many more Dad.

I am happy to have Komet done.  This is Bonnie Hunter's Star-Struck design taken at a Road to California workshop with her in late January of this year.  The fabric choice for the binding was a bit difficult, but I think it has worked out perfectly.  It's quilted in a stars and swirls pattern called Moonbeam with a variegated blue and yellow thread by Kerry's Quilting.

Today is my OFF Friday...YIPPEE!  Monday is also Labor Day (one of the rare company holidays).  This of course all means a FOUR DAY WEEKEND!  Hope you have a great sewing weekend as I plan to have.

Very nice finish on this quilt. Binding looks good to me.
Your parents have had an eventful time lately.
Wow, sounds like a fun weekend for you. I'm thinking I'm going to have to fight for sewing time, but I'll fit some in somewhere.
