Today is the last day at Kayes and we're off to Rocky tonight. I've had a great time apart from an injury on the second day. I was binding a quilt and hit a dense patch of stitching and put more pressure on the needle than was wise. It shot through not only the material but my thumb as well. That hurt a bit!

This is an antique quilt of Kaye's, a strippy on one side and a gold wholecloth on the other. The quilt is quite thick and the stitches are large- four stitches to the inch but it's still beautifully done, and I'd love it to come home with me.This is the back of another antique wholecloth; I love examining these close up and getting a feel for the history of a piece.
This letter "M" came from a headstone in a local cemetary-do you think I could piece something like this for Tonya's class?

I feel the pain. Love the richness of that yellow in the strippy quilt.

Ouch! I feel your pain! I'm always most bothered not to get blood on whatever i'm working on.

That is a lovely strippy quilt. Is it from Durham do you think?

Ouch. I've heard that if you get blood on a quilt, you are attached to the recipient forever. That hand quilting looks incredible. I hope I remember to put it on some quilt. That M looks wonderful. You should definitely try to piece it.
