Applique, Travel quilting

Traveling again

We’re finally here!  Cape Cod that is.  We’ll be celebrating our 45th Anniversary this Saturday and this is a trip long over due.  We were headed to the Cape for our honeymoon, but had to cancel when Tom lost his wallet two days into the trip.  Wanting to make this milestone anniversary special, we decided that we should finally get to the Cape.

Pastoral Scene at Sturbridge Village

On our way to the campground at the Upper Cape, we stopped at Old Sturbridge Village. It’s a recreation of a 1790-1840 New England village.  I was surprised that not only quilts but woven blankets normally covered the beds. We’ll probably stop again on the way back home as we only got to see about half of the 59 buildings.  We crossed the Cape Cod Canal on the Bourne Bridge.

Bourne Bridge

The width of the canal in 616 feet where the bridge crosses over it.  That’s a canal?
Of course I brought along some quilting projects.

Sunflower positioned on Falling Leaves background

The third in the series of fat quarter quilts is supposed to be finished in September.  I pieced the background before we left and am now working on the applique pieces.  The sunflower will be appliqued first.

To end the day we went to the ocean side of the island to get a view the night sky.

There is always time to quilt!
