Yesterday I went on a picnic with my grandson, who is a college student going into his senior year in September. On our way to the park, we drove through Yamhill, OR where I took this picture of a barn with quilt blocks on it.
We went to Menefee County Park, which is a small park with 2 picnic tables, a lovely creek flowing through it and huge trees.
It was a cloudy day and the temperature was in the 60s, but at the park it was 59º! We had a lunch of egg salad sandwiches, watermelon, juice, tea and cookies.
I thought you might enjoy the picture of the "facilities" in the park. Needless to say we didn't avail ourselves to the use of this facility.
The big news is that I completed the last border of my Dear Jane quilt - the left side. Here are the blocks. For your information, I have done a lot of machine appliqué on these blocks and quite a bit of hand appliqué. By the time I got to this point, I used more machine than hand appliqué, but I did use both methods in these blocks.
I will start working on the corner pieces right away and hope to start sewing blocks together soon.
I don't necessarily plan to work ONLY on my DJ quilt until it's finished, but my desire is to finish it sometime this year.
Thanks for visiting!
