Country Paths by Jan Patek




I finished quilting my "Country Paths"quilt yesterday.  I used a Baptist fan ruler and a big stitch using 12 wt. Aurafil in a bronze color.




Here are a few pictures that show the hills and valleys of sweet hand quilting.



I was able to get the binding done today - just in time for my quilt group meeting tonight.
This was a really fun quilt to make.  I enjoyed the piecing and I enjoyed the quilting.  The binding was even fun because I mixed it up with three different fabrics.




Here is my DH and one of the grandsons carving a pumpkin together.  It makes me smile to see the little guy up on the counter.  It was easier for DH  to carve up high rather than the floor because he has a bad back.

'Tis the season

Beautiful quilting--am liking the big quilting more and more. Great photo of Grandfather and Son--both look like they are enjoying themselves and anxiously awaiting the arrival of the Great Pumpkin
