Do you ever talk about doing something for years and never do it?
Well I fixed that last weekend. We finally, after 8 years, went for a picnic in New York's Central Park.
The runners went for a nice run on the bridle path (over achievers)!
Then it was time for lunch! It was a simple affair.
It was really fun to stretch out and relax and people watch. Here is Hanna reading her summer book for college. We moved her in last Thursday and she's very happy. Me? Oh, I'm fine....really.
So, what's this quilt you ask? It's my best copy cat quilt, I think. One of my guilds did a project where we chose quilts from the New Jersey Heritage book to make. We could replicate it, change it, reinvent it, etc.
Here is the original:
It's a little hard to see, but I used several muslins and tone on tone lights.
Here is the back. I love this Jo Morton fabric. Don't you?
Here you can see the machine quilting.
How funny is this? Doritos has reissued this original bag for their taco flavored chips. This chip was introduced in 1967 - hence my little troll friend. Anyone remember watch Brady Bunch, Partridge Family, etc and munching these chips? How about with an RC cola?
Have a fun week! Keep your fingers crossed that my machine comes home this week!
