A Mixture of Summer Flora and Fauna

Our Flat Rock Playhouse Block, the first for the Henderson County Quilt Trail, is finally hung. Designed by yours truly and Martin Webster it sure sparks up the gardens. It was donated by the NC State Garden Club and the Western North Carolina Quilt Guild. Trust you decipher the tragedy and comedy aspects of the design. 

 Stitching away on my new BERNINA 750 QE. What a joy to work with using the dual feed feet and that wonderful scissor cut off makes it a dream machine. Here I work on the Pillow Topper to match the donation quilt for the 2015 NC Quilt Symposium to be held here in Hendersonville, NC at Bonclarken.  By the Way, come a day early and take in a play at the Playhouse, right next door to Bonclarken.
 The night of the full moon the trees obscured my view but I did get to see some blooming flora.
 Heading west to the Nine Quarter Circle Ranch for my western retreat. My project this year is the Real Trip Around the World using up scraps. This time: my collection of western prints. Pardon "Rosie", but every time a quilt goes on the floor she has to bless it formally.
