I am so happy I finally finished my You + Me Quilt. I started this quilt at Sew Down in Portland. The pattern is by Heather Jones of Olive and Ollie . I used Kona Silver, Pea Pod, & Cyan. I had originally done a different square in the center of the quilt, but when I was getting ready to put the back on I thought it would be fun to have the backing match. It was a pain to rip out the center square but I am glad that I took the time to do it.

Quilt on hotel bed (its normal to travel with quilts to take pictures) I took a quick trip to Seattle to visit a friend and we spent some time on Bainbridge Island shopping. We stopped by Pink Chalk Fabrics and another local fabric store Esther's Fabrics . We also sampled fresh fudge and ice cream. - That is a requirement when traveling. I helped her get her new sewing machine set up and when I left she was well on her way to completing her first quilt top. I don't think her husband is overjoyed. Originally he thought it would be great - then we came back with fabric and needed to rearrange her living room for fabric draping/placement and he felt is space shrinking...... I told him it would get better. I don't think he believed me and I think it is best that he has never laid eyes on my sewing room,
I hope you have a great week. I am linking up with Amanda Jean at Crazy Mom Quilts and TGIF
