The HeartStrings Maine sew-in just ended and I really missed being there this year … I always find inspiration for my quilting.
I’m not a fan of the Jelly Roll Race quilts but after they did a race at one of our Maine sew-ins I came home and played with a jelly roll myself – this top is still waiting for the butterflies to be appliquéd.
We also had a tumbler race … Since I fly in and don’t carry a machine with me I always participate after the sew-in. This is the last top I quilted in July that is still waiting for binding but I love the fabrics in this one – scraps from a couple other quilts that had been thrown in a bin. I also love leaving the irregular edges on these and it’s not hard to bind either.
It’s been a busy couple years for me and Keith but we’ve loved the time we’ve spent in Maine and are talking about spending another month there sometime in the future. For sure, I’ll attend the HeartStrings sew-in next year !
Chesty loved Maine too!
