The first quilt will be at least loosely based on this quilt from the Fons and Porter Fat Quarter Friendly book published in 2000. Theirs is called French Country Strippy, and I loved the quilt since I first laid eyes on it.
On the slow-stitching side, I'm closing in on finishing up Campfire Memories, hand stitching the binding down on the final side, then just a few stray quilting threads to tie off and bury. Hopefully the finish will coincide with a non-rainy day so I can get some photos to post later this week. Still plugging along with the hand quilting on the Blockade quilt, trying to put in at least a few stitches every day. Looking forward to getting down to the borders on this one, where I think the quilting will progress a bit more quickly.
We're heading out to the city later this morning to one of the daughter's where we'll celebrate Father's Day with some of the kids and grandkids. Wishing you all a wonderful family-fun-filled weekend!
