Quilting with a View

There's been a little quilting progress on my baby quilt.  Almost two printed squares are done now.  Whoo-hoo!  I'm really tearing!  But who can blame me for not spending more time indoors with the lake right outside my window?

Unfortunately it was a little too windy to quilt outside.  Instead I spent most of my vacation just enjoying having a boat deck and sun.

I also picked off a few more mountains.  I even got my revenge hike on the only peak I previously attempted without making it to the top.  That's 32 hiked and 14 to go!  I've started out really strong this season - 7 mountains already in 2014.

After returning home it occurred to me that if I was going to make blocks for no hats in the house's June palate, I should probably start before it's July!  The center units were made last night and hopefully I'll get the points assembled today.

I even got my stripes to play nice!

  1. Quilting with a lake view, sounds perfect! Have a great week!

  2. I love to get a little in between quilting (and working)!!

    1. I meant to "get in a little hiking." Ooops . . .clumsy fingers.

  3. Sounds like summer! So fun.

  4. Thanks for the advice on the hand-quilting :) I'm actually looking forward to that part because it'll be nice and slow. Your quilt is looking beautiful and how lovely to have a lake right outside :)

  5. Sounds like an ideal summer vacation. Yay for hiking and water views!

  6. Lovely view while doing your hand work. Congratulations on conquering those mountain tops! Love those little squares.... And for such a great cause!
