weekend stitching...

After cleaning the house a little I got to finishing up my Scrappy Trip Around the World quilt top.
I love it so much...
 
We went into the paddock for a photo shoot on this beautiful Sunday afternoon. It was a bit breezy, which made for fun flowy photos. It's such a big quilt at 80" x 96", my 6ft 2" boy couldn't reach to hold it out properly...wowzers. Just 3 jelly rolls !!!
 
 

 
I love this old dead tree. It has so much character. It's amazing how many birds nest up in it. Spring is like "bird wars" with all the different birds fighting over the best nesting spots. 

 
 
I've a busy week ahead so this might get quilted next Sunday. We have a new leather lounge coming soon and this quilt will be the perfect companion for it...
 
Happy Quilting
