The table runner was loaded, quilted and....
...the binding made but I went back to the quilting frame
 before I sewed it on!
I instead loaded the QuiltsForKids boy version onto the frame
 and began quilting on it.
I'm using the fancy clamshell pantograph
which I call the dragon scales for this quilt.
In the yard, I (Bill) had to remove the old bowl to the bird bath because it developed a leak!  I have to paint this one to match the base but couldn't wait to put the ceramic ball on first. Inside I have set up the new solar water pump. 
(see the small square to the right of the wrought iron fence)
The water just bubbles up and cascades down
 the sides of the ball.  It is so pretty!


  1. I imagine it being so relaxing to hear the water trickle down the ball.

    The "boy" quilt is stunning. Someone will love it so much.

  2. Love the blue quilts - and the new fountain!

  3. The boy quilt turned out spectacular!
    We've been watching The Weather Channel keeping our eye on Frederick (?). I can't picture exactly where you are but it doesn't look like a lot of fun heading your way.

  4. I like the quilts so much and that fountain ball is so pretty. I can just imagine the sound of softly flowing water.
