Quilting is Better in the Country....

At least that's what my T-shirt says!!!

We had a great time in Round Top last weekend. Well, most of the time. It was pouring rain when we got there. Huge wind. Big storm. They had a tornado about 2 miles up the road, and 11" of rain fell in areas of the county.

So we spent pretty much all our time indoors -- which was just what I had planned to do. I got a lot done, but the only project I finished completely was this one.

It's just a little-bitty -- only about 10" square. But it was a blast to make. Kind of a sampler of what my new machine will do. It's a gift for a quilter friend who will appreciate the joy of discovering if all those fancy stitches really work!

And I LOVE these tulips that it stitches for a border! Aren't they cute??

Stay tuned for more pictures of projects from last weekend!
