Quicky Quilt Donation

Lime Blue Red Patchwork Quilt

Lime Blue Red Patchwork Quilt

The last week before Labor Day weekend I had an idea to make a quilt to donate to our Boat Club to raffle off. Our club was holding a Gyro & Snow Cone sale. And our locale is adjacent to a great little park on the shores of Lake Erie, from which many come to watch the Air Show. 

So I cobbled together a small (46″x48″) quilt from my stash & had it done for the event. I did the cutting & sewing the top on the boat with my Singer Genie and took it home to put together & quilt on my Brother 4500D.

I hand embroidered on the front corner a little.

Everyone was pleased with my donation & one of our marina neighbors won the quilt. 

I wasn’t able to get many (or ANY) good pics from the air show. But here’s one of the Blue Angels passing in front of our marina.

So summer is pretty  much officially over for us here in Cleveland. And it’ll be time to close up the boat in the next month or so.  But at least that’ll mean I have more sewing time available!! Life’s always a trade-off!
