a favorite sewing spot

We went camping on the weekend. We had good weather for May! I made sure I had a bit of sewing with me so I could sit and stitch in my favorite spot on this lake.
It's a new applique project using shapes from a Lori Smith pattern. It's progressing quickly - I'll post it again soon.
And, I had to share one more antique quilt from the same exhibit as last post. I love red and white quilts and I love how densely quilted this is - wow that would take a lot of time!
What is also taking a lot of time (for me) is machine quilting my basket quilt! I have to have it done by next Tuesday - I hope I make it!
Happy Quilting!!

Your sewing spot is so special, and love that you include it in your blog header. The red and white quilt is divine - you are a woman after my own heart! Just love two color quilts.

What a lovely stitching spot. I love the applique we're getting a peek of. I think I love red and white quilts as much as you and boy the quilting is the icing on this one.

What restful place to quilt and that antique quilt is lovely. It must have taken ages to do all the quilting :0)
