Spring Ride Today and Another Quilt Was Started Yesterday



We've had company all week. No sewing until yesterday. Mother started a blue Quick Strippie quilt using Mary Johnson's pattern. Because Mother wants her quilt to be a little longer than Mary's pattern, she added a few more strips. Mother is piecing blue Quick Strippie as I quilt her pink strip quilt.
It was a beautiful, sunny, spring day with temps in the mid 70's here in North Carolina. I went for a short ride on my CS motorcycle. Life is pretty good : )

I applaud you on your bravery to ride alone on a motorcycle. Love the blue fabric - my favorite colour. The 'wish upon a star' is sweet, but the floral/paisley really catches the eye.

You are so blessed to share quilting with your mom!

My husband is a new motorcycle rider and loves it! I, on the other hand, have yet to even sit on his bike!

Love the fabrics that your Mom chose. I hope you will show the quilt, too. Nice to hear you are having good weather. It is sunny here, but cold!
