I got a late start and Keith had a half day off today … but as luck would have it … I went looking in the closet for a top that I could use the turquoise thread that was already on the machine and this Strippie was perfect! A watery meandering in the focus fabric and some wave like swirls were freehand quilted. #2 of 10 is quilted, trimmed and ready for binding. This one also had a pieced batting and now I can put some turquoise thread on the sewing machine and get the binding on both of them.

Keith took a bike ride while I was finishing up and then we spent some time in the pool. We didn’t go to either pool at Big Canoe because of the crowds but here, we have a 21 unit townhouse community and there’s rarely more than one or two groups. Today we had it mostly to ourselves. My pool boy, even cleared the leaves out!


  1. Perfect quilting! It’s a lovely quilt, you can almost feel the water. Bet you enjoyed the swim by yourselves in this heat!

  2. Hi Mary! Oh man, that pool looks so inviting. Your pool boy is a keeper! Maybe you could ask him out for dinner or something?!! And the quilting looks like it was inspired by the pool. ~smile~ Roseanne

  3. You know I always love your strippie quilts! The quilting that you did on this one really made it come to life. I really like the yellow on this one. It gives it a nice punch of color.
