Retreating 2...

 We had a beautiful day and I needed a photo setting. Here's my Lincoln Museum Quilt by Barbara Brackman.
 Blind Man's Fancy reproduced from an old quilt from New York.
 They weren't interested in me as I was out taking a walk. They are annoying when they eat your flowers, but they are so cute!!
Old gnarly juniper tree. 

 Playoff games were on, so we had to show support. (I know Seahawks were out, but they are still "my" team)
 Geese crossing. Looks how lovely this day was!
  Christy got a lot accomplished. 

She was also working on Bonnie Hunter's mystery. 


Michelle had a lot going on! 
 Trying to decide on borders. 
Wine usually helps the decision making process. Especially if it has a hiker and mountain on the bottle!! LOL 


Taking a look from above to see if it cohesive. We declared it was! 
We admired her harvest moon. 



Looks like I was piecing my background for Together Again 2020 Quiltalong.
I got binding and labels made for quilts I've sent off to be quilted. 

I hope you are having a fantastic week!!

  12. Love the pics of both your quilts hanging out on the fence. I've often wished I could just leave a quilt hanging off of our balcony to welcome us home. lol Looks like a great time was had by all at the retreat.:) Great job getting your binding all prepped and ready to go!

  19. Love all the quilts Lori, but especially the Lincoln Museum and the Blind Mans Fancy quilts.
    Fancy the deer not moving, but I guess they are used to people being around them. They must be in your garden at times, to be eating the flowers. :-)
