Yesterday we spent another day out on the Mississippi river. The weather was perfect and we had a great time with friends. Lunch was at Ducky’s in Andalusia, IL.

Build Bob on the riverWe saw this neat log in the water (not a very good photo) and it looked like it was wound around a rock. We couldn’t get any closer, I’ll have to see if I can go out with my brother in his mud boat and get a better look at it.

Today I’m staying home and will quilt.

  1. Very nice little quilt, Connie. Great colors and the quilting is lovely. I've not done enough paper piecing to perfect the method so I'm sort of hanging out on the fence about whether I like the process or not. lol My one day I'll get busy and do enough of it to decide.

  2. I like your paper pieced project, bright and cheery, with really nice quilting too! Like you, I do like paper piecing – once in a while. But there sure are some great designs out there that are easier to accomplish with paper piecing!

  3. That paper pieced project is gorgeous. Makes me want to finish the one that is laying on my sewing table. I like the fabrics in yours and am NOT liking the fabric choices I made for mine, which is probably why I set it aside this summer.

  4. It came out beautifully. I can't believe you fmq'd it on your vintage singer. Today, I've been practicing FMQ on my Janome and am wondering if I'll ever get the hang of it. Perhaps if I practiced more than sporadically. Have a great afternoon!
