Saturday I was totally focused on getting the quilt top done and I finished it right before lunch. My camera would do the magic reshaping thing this time. It kept wanting to crop to the inner black border. You'll have to just look at this skewed version.
I don't know when I'll get around to quilting it. I need to dye a backing first but it will be done before August for sure. It will finish about 75 x 85.
After lunch I went for a walk to the other side (sound side) of the island and found a lovely little park with a hiking trail. At one corner there was a pier that provided a beautiful view of the sound.
You can even walk right off the pier into the water for a swim.
On the way back I came across my first beach bunny.....
After my walk I was about to pack up my sewing stuff but started thinking about what to do with the leftover bits. I really don't want to add these to my stash.
Within an hour I had a table runner. I think there's just enough fabric left to make a hanging sleeve for the quilt. I have to go back to Hobby Lobby this week and get some more of the red fabric for binding for both projects.
We packed up and headed home Sunday morning. I spotted this house on the way out. I bet some really nice people live here!
I have so much dyeing to do this week and will get to start a new crochet garment project. But the most important project is the bear that I'll be making from a vintage quilt. That has to be done by Thursday!

What a lovely beach trip! Change of scenery, all that fresh sea air, and productive, too. I love the interplay of the borders on the fireman quilt.

The top turned out wonderful! The scenery is so beautiful. I would not have wanted to leave. Sounds like you now have some very busy days ahead.

Beautiful quilt! Wouldn't you have loved to have connected with the owner of that house? Surely she's a quilter (or it could even be a he!).
