Off to Modesto for a Presentation and then onto Sister's OR, Woo Hoo!

I'm looking forward to presenting my Trunk Show to the Modesto Guild this evening!   It's always so much fun to visit other guilds, meet lots of fun people and see how they run their guild meetings!  And then tomorrow I'm off to Sister's Oregon (actually Sunriver)  for a few days of sewing and fun with my buddies Randy and Lori!  Woo Hoo!
I did finally make up my feeble mind about the bottom border on this wall hanging so I thought I'd post a few pix.  After considering all the helpful comments re; bottom border,  (Thanks everyone who answered my plea) I was still not happy with my choices so I dug a little deeper into my stash and found this aqua print that I thought fit the bottom nicely!  So it's done!  Yeah!  (Except for the hand sewing on the binding!)
Here are some details showing the quilting.

If you are wondering about the Bunny Border;  I can't give you a really good answer except to say it just kind worked for me?!  lol
I'm not super into message quilts but every once in awhile I slip something in with the quilting.
Play, Smile, Peace.
Sounds like a pretty safe and heart felt message!
Have a great week!
Cheers, Claire W.


  1. Nice job quilting, Claire, and I love the aqua border. Kinda makes that row of houses along the bottom seem like they're sitting on the beach! Have fun in Oregon!

  2. Perfect choice for the bottom border! You have created a wonderful quilt. I love the quilting too! It looks like clouds above the houses. And you added a beautiful thought. I hope you have a fun time in Oregon!

  3. Ohh Ilike the "new" solution for the bottom border ..
    Is that newest addition accompanying you on your trunk show?
    Enjoy the sewing trip - and of course the talking and the food which I'm sure will be great too ...

  4. That seafoam is just perfect for your bottom border! Beauty!
