I have made some progress this week. I am making both my daughters big quilts at their request. I showed LIsa's last week, it is a queen size. I couldn't get a great picture without things in the way but this is a sort of layout on the leaves. There will be three vines randomly coming down and leaves will be on either side. I wanted to see if I had enough. They have fusible web on the back with the paper still attached currently. The quilt will be bound in red.

I have this top in my collection for awhile. The pattern was in McCall's quilting in 2001 and my friend Debi wanted to make it and bought the pink. She gave it to me along with all her 30's. Amy wants a quilt roughly 126 X 108 with a very thin batting and navy blue on one side so it can play double duty. When she was here she saw this in my stash and said it would work. I had set it aside because there was a booboo. I had somehow mismeasured on the pink border and the quilt was not laying flat. After taking the outer borders off and removing 2" off each side I got it back to this point. Then I had to make two more white boders and then the piano key and finished it off with the only piece of 30's I had that had enough yardage. It's so big I didn't have a place to lay or hang it. It's in my lumpy yard so it doesn't look even and it's wrinkled so ignore that! It was sunny so the color is a bit washed.

Linking up with Patchwork Times.
We have woods behind our house and I have been going out and laying out trails for our dog to follow. She is 15 months old and is doing very well at her search and rescue training. I loved this mushroom, not sure what it is, and I love the purple flowers on the skunk cabbage.
