Been busy! Getting ready for a road trip with my daughter.
 I will miss the Kuna Quilt Show on August 4 and 5, but will have a wonderful time with my daughter.  Also, found a 2012 manual with all the quilt shops in North America in it.  We gonna be doin' some visitin' on the way to Ft Leonard Wood from Davis-Monthan AFB.  Big smile.  I have to travel light, since I am flying to Tucson. Which swatches to take? OMG! 
Please, click on the Gluten Free Doll Quilts link on the left of my page and view my latest doll quilt.  Yellow, white, and orange.  Here is a peek.

"Moose and Squirrel quilt" or "R&B quilt" or "Rocky & Bullwinkle quilt" or "Sew Lucky to Get It Done in Time"
Pete is very happy with this quilt.  It turned out very well.  I really like the design.  Thank you Elverta for keeping me sane, while I was doing this on the sly, so it would be a surprise.  Thank you, Bryan, for the terrific job of quilting it.  The writing with the characters and segments of the show "Rocky and Bullwinkle and Friends" turned out very nice indeed.  People read the words: Fractured Fairy Tales, Dudley DoRight, Nell Fenwick, Snidley Whiplash, Boris and Natasha, Mr. Peabody and his boy Sherman, WABAC Machine, Bullwinkle's Corner, Frostbite Falls, etc. and it brings back their memories.  Now, I have a hankering for a salad made with rapien and mooseberries!
So much to do, so little time.  Or enough time, just doing too much!  The quilt show is fast approaching, and I am not going to have my barn quilt finished in time.  But I got the "Moose and Squirrel" quilt completed in time for my husband's birthday on June 27th.  I finished getting the binding stitched on at 7:15 p.m. on June 26th.  I finished at the CONFAB and was going to go home and go to bed, but instead I went home and cleaned house.
