One Spring Finish! Smith Mountain Morning

     Sew......  it is becoming increasingly clear to me that I can either quilt,  garden,  or blog.... it must be like trying to walk and chew gum at the same time.   

     End of February was my last post?  Really????? 

     I did spend a lot of time outdoors this summer, finishing a landscaping project from last year,  but that shouldn't really be an excuse, 

     I did finish one quilt between February and October,  it was my Smith Mountain Morning, that I started when Bonnie Hunter came to do workshops with our guild in 2014. 

     I completed the top in February and decided to get it quilted in time for our guild's show which was in May.    I can't remember now, the exact date,  but I would estimate it at mid April, because I know it was done before it was time to work on show layout tasks

Bonnie Hunter and Myself at our workshop  May 2014

     This workshop was so worth taking a personal day off from work to attend!   Bonnie is such a wealth of tips and information, and not a pretentious  bone in her body!   

     I use this quilt daily as my chair quilt.  The bright colors make every day a bit more cheerful!
