I finished the quilt just in time for the tandem rally. Folks will start arriving tomorrow and we will give it away Saturday. This is the front, the cream in the center is for everyone to sign a block.

This is the "lable" and our signature block.

I've always loved that block pattern and how clever to use it for a signature quilt! Very effective and a wonderful way to make a memory of an event.

Hope your weather is beautiful!
The quilt is perfect for the event - as usual. You and Tim are spoiling the riders - as usual :)
The signatures will make an extra special keepsake!
I love your label. Have fun.

Thanks everyone. One of the riders last year said we proved to his wife that Southern Hospitality does exist. That is what we are going for. Some riders are coming in this afternoon, but the first ride is not till Friday about 1 to give others time to arrive in the morning. We have routes mapped and cue sheets printed ready to go. I have 2 pound cakes and 8 dozen oatmeal cookies ready to party. Weather permitting we will go to the lake with the kayaks and canoes Sat. afternoon in case anyone wants to float a bit. It is supposed to be in the low 80s for the first time Sat., so that should be fun.

I have fallen in love with the gray fabric and have started is search for more. It is soft, sews, and quilts like a dream. I bought 2 fabrics last year and ended up using the lighter sandy looking one for the back since the quilt top had a lot of white in it. This year I used this one because it sort of looks like asphalt. Now I want to use it in a quilt for me. With any luck I can find more. I do have enough left for a top, but not a backing.

Off to eat lunch before folks get here.

Beverly ~ I was going to ask you if you knew the name of the gray background fabric~I really like it also. I'll help you look for it!

I'm sure you and Tim represent Southern Hospitality at its best!

Best to you,

Lucky winner! Your a "good" person to put so much effort into the rally but it is all appreciated by the sounds. Your quilt is perfect and such a nice momento of the occasion.
Have a great time.

Sadly I don't remember who made it, there is nothing on the selvage, and it is died to the edge. I got it at Hancock Fabric, but that was a little over a year ago. Thanks for helping look for it. I have some small pieces and would be glad to send you one if it will help.

Beverly, I was going to ask you about your background fabric as I really like it, too. And, it looks great as a background in the quilt. You and Tim make a great team!

I had not thought of sending Hancocks a piece. Good idea, thanks.

Thanks, Sharon. I think we make a good team, too.
