I attached vine panel #10 last night. I am very pleased but the excitement is definitely dwindling with this project. Three more panels to go - I think I can make it.

I always appreciate the cool summer evening breezes where I live. With the window open behind me I can still comfortably quilt in the evenings :0) I have finished quilting all the blocks for my Crowfoot quilt.
All the sashing in the center portion of the quilt is done as well. When I lay it on my bed and look down from above it looks practically finished - lol!
However, I still have to quilt the outer sashing around the blocks and the border. The outer sashing I am quilting the same as all the other sashing.

With the arrival of summer there is a whole new pace to life. Still busy - but different. The kids and I went on a road trip to visit my parents in Kelowna and my sister in Vancouver. We had a great time but not a lot of stitching happened.
This week the kids are all busy with various camps and activities and I have 4 1/2 days to myself. I will savor them as they are the last until school starts again. My Circle Game friend had time to come over today and we worked on a new block.
And, I found this book - also by Judy Hopkins. This book has tons of great 6 inch blocks in it. The one drawback is that unlike the other book there are templates for at least one of the shapes in almost every block. At least they are mostly rotary cut and the variety is wonderful. I have a feeling that this will be a big quilt after all...
