Girls gone WILD!

The binding is on Baltimore Rhapsody!  Now I just need to finish outline hand quilting around those darn grapes in the harp block!

But first, my daughter and I are off on a "girls-gone-wild" trip through the southeast to see colleges.  Actually, after the winter we've had, I think it will be more like "Thelma and Louise," hopefully without the suicide plunge at the end. 

We are leaving within the hour from southeast Michigan...before the NEXT 6 inches of snow they are predicting for our house tomorrow...to see schools in N. Carolina, Tennessee, Georgia and Alabama.  She has a winter break from her junior year and we need to make decisions about this next phase of her life.

The quilt is making the trip with us.  I will get those last little stitches done at night when we aren't driving. 

So maybe I should say the "THREE" of us are going!

What will we encounter...ice?  earthquakes?  When I heard about the earthquake hitting S. Carolina and Georgia I just couldn't believe it.  I am hoping for some milder temps before returning to Michigan for the rest of the winter.

I have been hunkering down to finish this quilt...today was my "double-secret-deadline-day."  I came very close (just those darn grapes!)...my apologies to all my friends and family I have forsaken since before Christmas.  Now that it is essentially done, I can leave the house again!  I will get pictures so I can do the big reveal upon returning to Michigan.

Let me know about great quilt shops in N. Carolina...maybe I could talk Riley into a side trip...

In stitches,
Teresa  :o)

  4. I knew it, I just knew it that you had a predetermined (secret) deadline. That's okay that it was almost met. Remember, quilting is suppose to be a fun hobby. Safe travels.
