Summer at Charlevoix Quilt
Gary and I spent the last month everyday at his parents home, cleaning and shinning every nick-nak and groove and cranny of every hutch and corner of their home. We even had the interior fully painted, hung new blinds and had the curtains cleaned, floor installed in master bathroom and kitchen tile steamed cleaned. I even managed to sew curtains and valences for the family room and kitchen. They now have a sparkling clean home to enjoy once more.
I hope to pick up where I left off and start my weekly posts.
So Many moons ago I started to make this black and white quilt for our daughter Desire', but as life is not always smooth I was unable to work on the quilt as much as I wanted. I was bound and determined to complete this quilt, even though many times I wanted to give up.
I think it has been by far the hardest quilt challenge for me since I started quilting. The quilt has 5 blocks and of course trim pieces and binding.
When I first saw the quilt pattern in (Quilter's World June 2011 issue), I thought it looked easy. Well I sure fooled myself I stopped counting the pieces after 1,852 .
I am so happy I stuck to it and completed the quilt (Summer at Charlevoix)
Have a wonderful week everyone!
