Good Fortune Quilt

Just finished sewing on the binding on my " GOOD FORTUNE QUILT " .
Here is the backing I chose for the back of the quilt.
2 quilts done and 2 more to finish the binding on. These last 2 quilts were only 36" x 36" so they went quickly. These next 2 are much larger.

Fall Finale Quilt finished.........

Had a busy last 3 weeks and it feels good to be home and finish some bindings on my quilts. When we got home I found a box waiting for me from my quilter with 4 of my quilts all machine quilted. I quickly finished this little Fall quilt first so that I could enjoy it for awhile.

I made this quilt using the GRAND FINALE fabric by Moda . My quilter did a wonderful job quilting fall leaves on it.

We were in Reno last week celebrating our 39th wedding anniversary ! We stayed at the Peppermill ,and saw the musical " HAIRSPRAY " . We had a great time !

Fishing at the Lake.....

Hi ! Not much sewing going on. We have been taking a few trips and I thought I would share some pictures. 2 weeks ago we went to Pinecrest Lake , California with our friends. We got up that saturday morning to hook up the tent trailer to the truck and found that we had NO brakes lights on the truck or the trailer :-( I called up there and booked a townhouse last minute. We were determined to go after all of our planning and packing. The lake was low and we fished off the shore. We all caught our limit both days and our friend caught a BIG ONE 18 1/2" long. We walked around the cabins there and saw these mushrooms and carved bear & Racoon......... Just thought I would share some pictures from our trip....

Last week we drove to Apple Hill , California , had carmel apples HMMM ! and stayed overnight at Lake Tahoe . I will try to post some pictures next week.
