Lots of things.......

I told you I had a visit from a blogging friend Saturday and here we are.  Do you recognize her?................Her DH was the photographer................

OK, we turned around......................and it's Julie!  She and her husband planned a visit to my house on the way home from their trip.  We had 4 delightful hours talking about fabric and quilts and tools.  It was so much fun!  Thanks Julie and DH for taking the time to come to cornfield country.  I unfolded several quilt tops while they were here so I spent some time yesterday choosing backing fabric for them.  That's one step closer to finishing. 
I promised an update on the Streak of Lightning hand dyed blocks.  I talked to the friend I am making it for and she likes the look of the 'hired hand' quilts from the past.  They were long and narrow.  All of the blocks are made and now I just have to decide if the layout is done and then I can sew it together.

OMG... As I scrolled down your Monday post, I was so surprised to see Julie's smiling face, before I could read her name... I thought she is a friend of mine too. They say everyone has a double and her double lives in the valley I live in and she is a very creative art quilter.

And I must add, I have always loved your rusty/brown wall hanging.

Streak of Lightning... great title for this piece. I can feel the 'charge' just from looking at it.

Happy sewing

Oh, wow!!!! Those zig zag blocks are amazing! I never heard of hired hand. Does that just mean long and narrow?

And how nice to have a visitor (and husband) to share some of your beautiful quilts with. Good for getting the backings chosen, too. You are on a roll!
