My Gammill and the Quilt

This is a top I worked on this weekend.Love the way that it turned out. The quilting is actually done with a lime green thread that matches the back. However, the thread is very thin and you have to be up close to notice what color it is. The batting is Quilters Dream 70/30 and it quilts beautifully. I really love Quilters Dream battings they are all top quality.
This is a view of the quilt coming off of the machine. Look at the top take up bar and you can see the bright, bright green backing. That is the thread color on the quilting.

This was a really great quilt to work with. Good workmanship and 'plenty of backing'.

South Carolina has been really hot this past week, just like the rest of the country. The heat index here today is 107 and let me tell you it feels like it too.

Tori's leg continues to heal. She is now in a fiberglass cast from just below the knee to just above her toes. She is not allowed to drive so Andy is helping us out with everything. Don't know what we would do without him.

I can't believe that we are only 23 days from 'Summer Fun Quilt Camp'. Time for us to Rock and Roll to get everything ready. This is our first trip during the month of August so I really hope that the air conditioning holds out for our trip. I have plenty of things planned and I know that the 'show and tell' will be wonderful as usual.

OK, guess that I need to get back in the groove. Have a great week. I'll try to check in again sometime this week.

Love the quilt and the backing! Isn't this weather just the pits!!! Hope Anita was emailing us from Maine where it has to be cooler than this. She and Vern were supposed to be in Maine either this past week or next.
