Lightning in the Night Sky

The quilt for my nephew is done, the backing is made, and it's all packed up and ready for quilting. The "thunderbird" (such an awesome name!) didn't make it on the backing because I was so involved arranging the big pieces that I got almost done and would have had to cut the backing apart to get it in. Oh well. It's going to be great. I've got the binding all cut and ready to go.

Next up, a bit of bookkeeping, preparations for the next class at QT, a proposal for a workshop to a local quilt group and some garden prep.

However, I do have a plan for a quick summer quilt table cover. The Picnic Table rail fence quilt will be going to QT for a class I'll be teaching there later this summer, and will I need something to replace it.

I can hear the song, "It's electric" when I look at your stunning quilt. It is stunning!

I have been watching you create this masterpiece and I love it so much I've order the book so I can make one. I love the colours you've chosen.

Perhaps the thunderbird becomes a matching cushion or pillowcase?

LOL - I wouldn't have cut it apart to add t-bird either.

Gorgeous! Your nephew is a very lucky young man to have such a generous aunt. I'm certain he will treasure it for many years to come.
