It is always my birthday

Whenever I like something it is always my birthday.
And I like a lot. My friends know this and let me be. Great friends.

Beautiful West Virginia.

I had the chance to visit family in West Virginia last week, so here are a few pictures of our trip.
My brother-in-law's hunting shed. 

Black Walnuts.

Real doe, she stood perfectly still. 

This cow always came to the fence to see me during my walks. 

Pretty wild flowers.

Old covered bridge.

The wedding quilt is done!

I have been working on this quilt on and off for about 4 years. And finally it got done and giving to the wonderful couple. Some of my friends in Germany helped make the friendship blocks, in purple and green and blue. The attendees at the wedding signed good wishes on the blocks , and I assembled the top .  I  found the perfect border fabric at the quilt shop on Vashon island. I quilted it with loops to represent the blending of the couple , who both have been married previously and have children from these marriages and to avoid quilting on the writing and coloring.

                       The quilt is 98 inches by 98 inches,
                                                       big enough ( still ) to cover the family.

Chloe first quilt .

My grand daughter Chloe got her first quilt done. She did 90% herself.
I am so proud of her and hope she keeps up quilting and sewing. She did the quilting on my long arm machine, I only did the first and last row. I assisted with the binding, everything else was done by Chloe.
