It is that time of year when hubby goes to dealer meetings again. I alway enjoy riding along ,taking a littler sewing machine then while hubby is in meetings I sew away. Here’s a peek into our journey.
We started out with temperatures in the upper 70’s … so in packing I only put in a heavy sweater forgetting just how cold some parts of the US still are. I really didn’t mind the temperature drop until it hit freezing and below temperatures…. needless to say there were a few times I was nearly frozen myself.😄
From hills to flat land
From warm to cold
From upside down house to huge tires
From lovely farms to rocky views
From red barns to brown ones
Now for all the quick miscellaneous shots…
Soooo… what did I work on while hubby was in meetings….. take a guess😄
Yep the double wedding ring quilt. I have 54 ring sides done.
What the rings look like before trimming. I did sew a few of the rings together to see if it was what I thought it was going to look like in my minds eye ..as to what quilt would really be.
I’m happy with it! Sorry about the wrinkles as the iron was worthless there and I was afraid of ruining my fabric. Two of the rings aren’t sewn to the center neither.
I also took a book along to read,”Georgia quilts” what a wonderful book! I didn’t get it finished completely,but I did find a pattern in there that would use my little scraps up ,that would make me very happy. It was made by two black ladies here in Ga .
The flower petals were done by Mary Lizzie Parham in her elder years then her daughter Annie Howard finished it after her mothers death. Fabric era… about the same time frame as what I’m working with now….
I believe the design is simple enough for me to make one similar.
We did go to two museums on the way home ,that I will do a later post on.
