It was a good and productive weekend. I got a chance to work in the garden. I got a large section of it weeded (still lots more to do though! *sigh* it never ends). These are some close ups of the beautiful lilies in DD#2's garden. Aren't they beautiful?
Last week DS went to Lax camp and this was after he came home. He was a little sunburned and very tired! Jack felt it necessary to keep him company during his nap. Notice the Texas fleece he is sleeping with? I took the quilt so I can put a sleeve on it and de-cathairify it. (Like that word I just made right up??)
I was determined to get the "M" string quilt, if not done, at least mostly done. I had quilting with the CL's this Sat and worked on sewing the blocks into rows. Here is Hallie helping me make the additional yellow blocks I needed to make to make this quilt work out how I wanted it to.
Here is the quilt all layed out at the church. All the rows are finished but now sewn together. I thought the "M" looked a little squat so I needed to make one more row to lengthen the "legs" of the "M". I did manage to get the whole top finished on Sunday. I will photograph it today (By the time I finished it it was dark outside and I don't have anywhere to put it inside). It turned out to be 84" X 105", so it is a HUGE quilt.
If you are a Michigan fan it certainly is an "in your face" Michigan quilt! Now I just need to put a back together and I can had it off to Liz. This is for the Pathology raffle for this fall. So, what do you think?
