I enjoyed a long weekend in Sisters Oregon camping beside a good friend of mine. This is the second time we have camped together during Quilt Show week. Last year we weren't next door like we were this year. It was fun this way and we have already reserved our spots for next year. There was sewing in the great outdoors on a cool rainy day. My sister and a friend joined us.....

There was shop hopping, with lots of treasures to be found....
I love pieced backs for quilts. They add so much character and are so fun to look at. But the making of them.....well let's just say it is quite time consuming and a little math challenging. I have had my Tumalo Trails quilt top done for quite a long time. This week it was time to construct the back and start quilting it! Needless to say it took a bit of time. I am happy to say I pulled all the pieces from my stash" I think the date on one of the salvages was from 2009 , and I know one of them is at earlier than that. Felt good to clear out those three yellow pieces from the stash.
Right now it's on the frame. I started quilting it yesterday.
I'll post a picture when I get to the binding stage.
I did finish these two quilts for my nephews.
I have just a wee bit of hand stitching left one one of the bindings.
