Another Quilt

I know it has been a long time since my last blog. As I said in my last blog, I had picked up quite a bit of quilting material. So I got busy and put together another quilt top with some of that material. I really loved putting this quilt top together. The material used in the narrow border is what I will be using for the back of the quilt. I will hand quilt it with the same coloured thread as the backing.

Since my last blog, we did a couple of trips. One to Moncton to visit my MIL and to go to my DH's cousin's interment. The other trip was to Pennsylvania for two weeks. It was a wonderful trip, very relaxing and we did have great weather too.

In between the travelling and quilting, I helped DH to work on our sun room. It is all completed except for the trim around the doors and the windows. We were finally able to put our new furniture in that room, that we had purchased two years ago and we had stored in our garage. I have already started to enjoy that room by having my morning coffee and reading there and enjoying the great view of the lake.

I have also spent some time putting in my flower garden. It was late to put it in but I waited until we came back from Pennsylvania as I was afraid of having a frost while we were away. DH and I moved one of the shrubs and put in a smaller one in its place.

We are planning a couple of more trips both the St. Martins, New Brunswick, one in July and one in August. We always enjoy our camping trips to St. Martins. Century Farms Campground is always a very nice park and it is run by great people.

It has been a great summer so far and I hope every body's summer is going great too. Take care.

Glad to hear from you again. You certainly have been busy. And more trips this summer. I know you'll have a great time.

Your sunroom sounds lovely. I've always wanted something like that, although it's so hot here in the summer, that I would probably only use it fall and winter! Not going to have one in this house, anyway.

I'd be glad to send some of our 95 degree weather up your way!

Sounds like a busy summer, but a fun one. The quilt looks lovely.

I absolutely love the way the quilt colours play with each other! Beautiful!

Safe travels!
