May 8th and this is really only my second finish of 2015! is hard to believe this is only my second finish of the year, but I'm happy to say my brother's quilt is done.  I plan to send it to him when the weather starts cooling off in Texas next fall, so it will be awhile.  He is the only member of my family who has yet to receive a quilt from yours truly, but in my defense, he lived in Key West for years, where it is really a bit warm for quilts.

This quilt was backed using a tan fabric with a small navy floral print, quilted in a meander pattern with a neutral tan thread, and bound with the navy blue used in the quilt top.

I'm glad to have this finished, so it will be ready to send.

Finally, I want to wish everyone a Happy Mother's Day.  My Mom and I had a wonderful breakfast and visit this morning.  I'm so lucky to have her as my Mom.  She is an amazing woman!

Happy Easter

My favorite cattleya orchid bloomed just a couple days ago, right in time for Easter.  I sat out on the porch with my coffee this morning enjoying a nice breeze and the heavenly fragrance of the orchid.  So much many reasons to be thankful :)

The rest of the day was spent with family - I hope you all had a wonderful Easter as well.
