Here is a Smilebox highlighting the guild's display:

|First block - I found a better "water" fabric - notice the rick rack?|
|Partial blocks - I'm using paper piecing to get the sails just right|
|Idea came from this quilt found on Pinterest|
I need to find some bright red/white/blue plaids - anyone know where to find some?? My LQS and JoAnn's don't seem to have any - always a great idea with an out of season/style fabric! I shall continue to search...
Hope you are having a good sewing week and enjoying the change of seasons. The maples up here are turning but still about 2-3 weeks until peak color. Linking up with Judy and her DWM...

|Love this border print!!|
|Front - needs lots of hand work|
|Top section - of course a tractor and a fire truck|
|Bottom section - police car and another tractor|
|Back - panel and another fabric from the collection|
|Original pattern - note: no border!|
All in all, I am pleased and the end is in sight. Not much else going on here - lovely weather. Got in a little golf and a wonderful anniversary dinner on Friday night at the Douglas Lake Bar and Steakhouse in Pellston, MI. Check out the wonderful work of other quilters on Judy's Design Wall Monday. See you next week with the completed quilt (fingers crossed).
