Finally done!!

I have finished my final border for the round robin I'm participating in...woo hoo.

Here is a close up picture of the corner.

Round Robin 2

And a full picture.

Aunt Nelda's quilt

Not bad for a

I hope my aunt will like it. My aunt and cousin are coming down next weekend for the semi annual Creativ Festival

I go to the festival every year (twice a year actually) with 32point5. This will be the first time my aunt and cousin have come down for the show. I'm so excited for them to come with us. I'm sure my aunt will absolutley love the show and hopefully make it an annual trip.

I have my list of "wants" already for the festival. One thing I want to stock up on is Christmas fabric and some Amy Butler fabric.

8 days until the show...woo hoo.

I also got more done on Corky's quilt today. I sewed the backing fabric together and sandwiched the quilt together and basted it with basting pins. Then I trimmed it all up. After I finish my blog post I'm going to go and see if I can find some clip art pictures of dog bones (I'm sure I could free hand one...but might as well look for some clip-art) and a fire hydrant or a dog house...I thouht those might be cute pictures to use as a quilting outline on some of the squares or on the borders.

To my Canadian readers I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving on Monday. I will be celebrating Thanksgiving on Sunday with my mom and dad and my dad's brother and his wife. My aunt and uncle just got home from a three week trip to China, so I'm looking forward to hearing about their trip.

That turned out nicely! And the "field trip" sounds like it will be fun, only I'd probably spend too much money!

Your quilt top looks great. I hope you have a great time at the show. I have always wanted to go but never seem to have enough moolah.
