I've quilted several Birds in the Air quilts in the past few months and I found this one to be so striking! The customer used all civil war prints and the colors just went together perfectly. I did a freehand feather meander over the entire middle of the quilt and feathers in the outer border. The inner border is a curlycue design.
I just bought the book, so I think I may have to make one for myself!
Other than that it's been pretty quiet here. Except for the couple of hours I spent in the emergency room on Friday! My youngest, Grace, was at the beach with her friends on Friday afternoon as they had the day off and it was gorgeous out. She managed to trip over a cement step and rip a nice hole in her toe...it was about the size of a quarter and only attached on one side. She calls me and says, "mom, I'm bleeding. My shoe is bloody, my pants are bloody...are you going to be home soon? I came home, put a call in to the doctor and he said to take her in. Grace managed to talk the ER doc out of giving her stitches (she's good, isn't she?) and he superglued the whole thing back on using Dermabond. She didn't manage to talk him out of giving her a tetanus shot, though! I have to take her to the family doctor this week to have it checked. Don't we know how to have fun?
Last night, my DH and I took a ride over to Dave & Busters on the Philadelphia waterfront and met some guys who came in from all over the country for a big sales meeting at my husband's office. There was a 3.5 hour wait for a table...and we didn't get there until 8:00 at night! We hung out at the bar with the guys and finally were seated at 10:30, a whole hour early. We had a great time...I can't remember the last time I had drinks with 9 guys!
Today was a quiet one, spent most of it finishing this quilt, then I dropped Grace and a friend off at our church youth group meeting and my 16 yo daughter and I went to Panera for dinner. I love that place...I had a chicken caesar salad that was just delicious.
Tomorrow I'll have to do my March wrap up, but I can't remember what I did last month, so I have to think about it!
