STRIP QUILT IN PROGRESS

This is what I have been sewing on . I took a class from Mary Lou Nuzum how
to make a strip quilt from your scraps.  I have 8 rows done and plan to make 4 more.
The strips are sewed on warm and natural.

The back is 6 1/2 inch blocks and a binding strip between the blocks.
Each row is put together with a binding strip that is slip stitched on the back.
Then I  will put a binding all around  to finish it.

WHAT I AM WORKING ON

I chose to put a white strip in the middle and have been sewing on this  for August
I have been so busy canning and freezing my produce from our garden too.

This is the pattern I have chosen to put them together.
I have 5 rows of blocks put together..Need to make 12 rows in all.
So have 7 more to go.

This is what the back looks like with a binding between each block.
 I have two rows sewed together so far. with binding between the rows too.

THREE DAYS OF MICHIGAN FISHING

This is the 27 inch cat fish that Clark, my son caught  and he wanted me to hold it so I could put it on 

my blog. It weighed 7 lb. 6 oz.  The first day they caught 2 cat fish and 50 Blue gills.

The second day they caught 1 cat fish and 50 blue gills.The third day they got 20 catfish and the ice chest was full and they could not fish for blue gills.  Click on all the pictures to see these great fish.


They put them on the table to show off.
   
Here they have them on the deck but they don't  look as big.

They were almost all around 19 & 20 inches long. or  more.

  This is the gar fish Dick caught but not near as big as the one Clark caught but they had a  lot of fun
Took hours to  clean these fish but not long to catch them sometimes 2 at a time.
