Sweet Treats and Nashville

Melinda is hosting an ice cream challange and the photos are due to her tomorrow. My flavor was rocky road and we were able to add 2 colors to our ice cream palette. I only added the pink and I finished mine just in the nick of time. I completed the quilting before I left for Nashville on Saturday and stitched part of the binding sitting on the deck sipping a cold one, enjoying the lively conversation with Julie, Marla, Angie and her sister-in-law.

Here's the quilt:


And some closeups. This was my first time trying cross-hatching and boy-oh-boy, did it ever take a long time.


EDIT: I just realized that I forgot to attach the cherries. Oh well:(

Nashville, IN
What a wonderful time I had in Nashville. We visited a winery and some local shops, enjoyed a great dinner and played cards.

Not very many purchases, but here they are:

I came home this morning so that I could finish the ice cream quilt. I think I will give it to Elizabeth for her room and should probably put a hanging sleeve on it.

Love it Ruthie. Was it from a pattern or did you design it?

That "Sweet Treats" is adorable. You could always add some red yo-yo's for your cherries after the fact.
