Baby Whale Quilt Nearly Done...

THIS QUILT IS LISTED ON ETSY.CLICK HERE

Took the Harley out with the man yesterday. It was an absolutely gorgeous day in North Carlolina. Temps only in the 50's when we left. We drove down to Pope Air Force Base on beautiful country roads, up to Chapel Hill, then back down to Raleigh.  About a 6 hour road trip.  It's been almost two months since we've taken a decent ride - our last ride being our Montana trip. 



I  worked most of the rest of the day on a commission quilt - that is almost complete.  I am so in love with these homespuns. After I started this quilt last week I went out and bought more as my supply is running low.  They are rather hard to find in this area - particularly in these beautiful blue shades (they remind me of Glacier Lake in Montana) - but I found a shop that carries about 20 different blends of color and they are really, really pretty.



This morning I made the bias binding and all that is left is to sew it on by hand and add the water spout to the little whale on the back.  Then I can pack it up and send it off to the little guy who will soon be snuggling beneath it.



Sometime today I will be taking a studio break to take Sabrina to the sporting goods store to shop for Lacrosse equipment.  We're not even done with tennis yet.



Next up: complete the quilting on Indian Summer Quilt, complete the commissioned tote bags, work on my art journal and paint some gift tags. 



Hope you get outside today and enjoy some fresh air and sunshine!
