Walk in the Park

Would be great....
 
If there wasn't 4' of snow everywhere...
 
This will have to do....
 
 
This project has made it to many retreats but never saw daylight.
 
I started it at our retreat in January FINALLY
 
 and
was making great progress till I ran out of black...
 
After some searching I found some that will do
 
and
 
 it was back out of the box!
 
 
 
It was a mess of pieces to organize again!!

 
I started in the center and worked my way around...

 
Before I knew it, I was ready to bind.
 
I have never bound such sharp inside corners and definitely need a lesson....
 
or TEN on that!! 

 
I kept the quilting simple with just a small stipple in the white
 
and
 
'stitch in the ditch' around the knots.


 
I am still not sure why it made one extra block.
 
Maybe it was a test block?!?!
 
So I put it on the back.
 
 

One more project bites the dust!!
 
Good thing as there are only 8 weeks to our quilt show!!

  4. I read on FB "I hope summer falls on a Saturday" and isn't that just about the truth this year! :o) I love your "Walk in the Park" - great colours, beautiful curves, perfect binding... aren't you scared of anything when it comes to piecing and quilting?
