The first Family Ties quilt traveled to the longarm quilter's today. The long border strip you see at the bottom of this picture actually runs down both sides of the quilt. I added triangles to the corner of each long rectangle to look a little like bow ties. We picked the quilting design and the thread, and I'm excited to see how this looks after the quilting is done. Knowing Sue, I'm sure it will look fantastic!
The colors and prints of all the ties are so attractive together! The green and blue one here is one of my favorites.
Now I'm off on a trip of my own! I'm headed out for three days of shopping with a good friend of mine. We've been doing this trip for many years and always look forward to our annual "girl's weekend". We'll see what bargains we can find this time!
