Quilts at the Cottage

Now that the hot weather has finally arrived, it was time to think about doing some painting at our cottage and that is where I have been this past week. There was time to relax and take in the views of the lake between recoats of many layers of primer and top coat. The walls of our cottage are wood paneling and it took a lot of paint to cover them. Sorry, but there will be no before and after photos as it is still a work in progress stage. Next year we will tackle the ceiling. Once it got too dark to paint (we don't have electricity), it was time for a little fire and roasting marshmallows.
My SIL Marian has been quilting longer than I have and this quilt is about 20 yrs. old. and now graces their bed at their cottage. I love the soft subtle colours that she used. Very pretty! Hand appliqued and hand quilted.

This quilt has just been completed for a niece. It is called Uncommon Boston Commons. Hand appliqued and hand quilted. This photo doesn't do justice to the fabrics and colours.

Enjoy and have a great day!

The Boston Commons quilt is very pretty. Or maybe I should say the Uncommon Boston Commons quilt is very pretty.
