Red Strips Quilt Finished

The red strips quilt is finished and on our bed. Lady was the first to test it.

I really like this quilt. It IS a big one and I have to confess that my quilting on it is a mish/mash of all sorts of things. I get bored sometimes when I am quilting and have a hard time staying on one theme. What can I say? Since it will live here, I was not too worried about perfection. I just like to have fun, and this is definitely a fun quilt. There are so many fabrics and surprises in it that make me smile. That is what makes it interesting for me.

I wish I could get a better picture, but it's too big to hang anywhere I have outside. I guess I need to get Mr. Muddling to put a really high line up for me!

More testing.

And a little more.

Yep. This one works.

I have to share with you the beautiful charm bracelet Miss Ru got for me for Mothers Day. I love it! And I love our children. They are all the best!!

Oh, and one more thing - it did finally rain and the rain barrels worked great!  All three filled. I do love it when a plan works, don't you?

I am so thankful for so many things. God is good. I hope you've discovered that

Hug and kisses,
