John's Quilt

Took a day off from work and had a little day trip with the hubby and the youngest.  We always go north but decided that we needed to go where we have never been before.  

We visited Florence, Miami, Superior, Globe and Apache Junction.  We met a woman in Globe who gave us a tour of the old Pinal County Superior courthouse.  She filled us with tales of ghosts and a mysterious murder....  she was awesome!
Saturday evening, we spent time at our oldest daughter's and husband's house to celebrate her  birthday.  Our son-in-law cooked delicious burgers (and veggie burgers for my daughter and me) on the grill.  He also grilled some sweet peppers to perfection. It was a fun evening of delicious food, (a little tequila... yummmm)  games with friends and family and lots.... and I mean lots... of laughter!  

So happy to be able to get a little time in the sewing room this weekend. 

Finally finished the quilting on John's quilt on Saturday.  (Before the tequila!) Fought hard with that quilt....  the top thread broke a million - and that is no exaggeration! - times.... but it is done.   

Miss Susie had to show me who was boss though.... so I had to wait to see my notes of the measurements so the binding could be cut. 

Finally got it all cut and sewn.....

And with the label made, the binding sewn to the front - John's Quilt is all ready for me to spend a little time in front of the television while I hand stitch the binding to the back....  

Just in time for Summer ;)  

And that green box?  It is the next project waiting!!
