Len's Quilt Top



Today is DH's birthday (39!) and his quilt top is almost finished. I want to add a wider border in a black and white fabric, but do not have time for that today. However, the most important part is finished - and you can be sure I will not ever make this quilt again!

Tomorrow DH and I fly to Melbourne, while the grandparents mind the boys. We will be there until Tuesday and look forward very much to a weekend strolling around the city, having leisurely meals at restaurants, visiting museums etc! On Sunday we are having lunch with the Melbourne members of Art Quilts Around the World at the Observatory Cafe at the Botanic Gardens. I'm really looking forward to that as well!

Wow ... that quilt looks amazing! I hope you like hot weather as your trip to Melbourne will strike four very hot days including one over 40 degrees. Carry plenty of water! The botanic gardens are lovely, we have had rain at helpful intervals but it will all brown off again after this weekend.

Happy Birthday for your Hubby!!! What a beautiful quilt will that be!! I like your colors, I never saw this before. Most of them I saw with bleu's and greens and mixed colors.
Have a nice weekend, even when it is hot ;-))

greetings, Adrie
