Our flimsies were finished about a year ago (you can see Marei's HERE). Then mine went off to the local long arm quilter for a few months' vacation. It came back a few weeks ago and I finished the binding on it.
My trusty assistant and retired husband has a new, legitimate gig as official "Quilt Holder-Upper." The pay sucks, but there's a decent benefit package. He seems like a natural.
Sandy did a nice all over, swirly floral quilting motif.
A glimpse of the backing and dotty binding.
In other happenings, we spent a pleasant afternoon at the Museum of Wisconsin Art again recently.

I first thought they were nesting in the pines far back in the yard, but the other day I hung sheets out on the line for the first time this spring and watched a crow with a beak full of sticks fly into the ash tree right off the deck. Yep, there it was, the crow's nest, about 40 feet off the ground.
Last spring it was mallards, this year it's crows. It's going to be an interesting summer!
