We had a fantastic winter retreat at Mrs. Miller's Cabin in Charm, Ohio this past weekend. The weather was perfect and the sewing machines were buzzing. We ate wonderful meals, shopped at Mrs. Miller's Dry Goods, caught up on family news and enjoyed the best weekend you can imagine.
It took a weekend at The Cabin to finally finish Easy Street borders. I needed a big floor space to lay it out and measure. It's my largest quilt ever, as you can tell by the picture. The quilt holders were standing on chairs and I have to thank them for risking life and limb to get this shot. We found the perfect backing at the quilt shop and Miss Carol is going to quilt it for me. I know it is in good hands!
Sometimes pictures tell the story better than words can convey.
