It has been so hot here, that I stayed in and was finally able to complete the New York Beauty wall hanging top. I am re-naming it NY Sunrise. It was all paper pieced except the pie-shape, so it was a little bit of a challenge, but I am becoming more comfortable with the process. I am going to machine quilt it with a simple design. The fabric and pattern speak for themselves. I found a great batik backing with purples, oranges and a little green. It should make a nice accent. Now it is back to the double wedding ring and ocean waves tops.
I did take a little time to drive up to Hershey, PA on Saturday to go to the Quilt Odyssey show. It is only a 2-1/2 hour drive. My daughter and granddaughter went to chocolate world and I went to the show. They gave out samples at chocolate world. My granddaughter is 2 years old. You get the picture...my daughter looked like box of chocolates exploded all over her clothes. :0) It is a nice show, not too big and just enough vendors. This time I had my camera with me, but forgot to check for a memory card and the memory became full after 3 photos. But the quilts were gorgeous. I will post in a few days.
