Quick Easy Finish

Ok another one in the done pile, waiting for quilting....the border really does lay flat but a furball ran across the edge of it and ruffled it up just as i was taking the picture LOL. I had planned to make a pieced border for this one too, but when I laid it out beside the quilt it just looked too heavy. I was going back in to my sewing room while I was trying to decide what to do with it and lo and behold, this multi colored splotchy piece was on top of a stack and it blends perfectly! So it became the border and already cut the binding out of it too. I will whip that up later and put it with the quilt for later what can I get into around here................


It has been a productive weekend here quilt wise for me. I made the blocks for this quilt in the truck when I was out in Idaho waiting for my load. Got them all squared up and put together and the borders made and put on today. This is the first quilt I have ever made using black and I LOVE IT !!!!!!! Will love it even more after I get it quilted LOL.

Just somethin about these hills puts peace in my soul.

sorry bout the bugs LOL they INSISTED on coming along for the ride too


It has been a busy couple of weeks. Took chemicals from TN. to TX. Took tires from AR to CO and WY. Now hauling gun safes from ID to OH and will final in VA, then back home again for a few days. Tonight finds me parked at the dock of my customer in Ohio waiting for them to come to work in the morning to offload their part of this load.
I even managed to squeeze in one afternoon of sewing while I was out in Idaho. Got 132 blocks chain pieced to make a Nickel Bricks quilt I have been admiring forever. I started the squaring up process but ran out of time and had to leave it till I am home again probably. Will post pictures as soon as I get the top sewn together, but as heavy as my work schedule has been no telling when that might be.
I am not having much luck getting my pictures to go where I want them to be in my posts, so I will stick them in a second post. Just wanted to show you guys some of the beautiful mountains that I so dearly love out west. (you get to see them the same way i did LOL, thru my bug splattered windshield ..........)
