LG (as per Elaine)

Hi There!

Remember my 9 Patch scrappy quilt?  The pattern, "Rick Rack Nines" came from Bonnie Hunter's book called "Adventures in Leaders and Enders" ?

Well, the top is finally finished and I pieced the back, as well.... a-la-Bonnie-Hunter!   I added 3 or 4 orphan 9 Patch blocks and pieced reds and yellows and beiges.... all together!

Gilbert made the label, yesterday evening and it was pieced onto the back, as well!

 Having put that quilt aside, it is now patiently waiting for it's turn with Bertha, our longarm machine and with Gilbert.

After "Tequla Sunrise" was (temporarily) put away, 
I dug out these blocks.

My Aunt asked that I put these blocks together and have it quilted.  She wants to give this quilt to her niece, this summer.

As you can see, I made some progress, by late afternoon.

My Aunt painted these roses with fabric paint, called "Cameo".  
She used to be a "Cameo" representative.

As you can tell, I've been a busy and happy camper!

Got this whole week off -
LG - Life is Good!
(as my friend Elaine says... )

Looking forward to seeing your quilt after Bertha gets through with it.

Great start on the next project.
