This is actually from June, but I didn't post this quilt. The pattern is You Zig, I'll Zag. I used Road 15 fabric from Moda.
That is Rob's mom holding the quilt. It started as a quilt for Bob while he was going through chemo, but then he ended up not having to do chemo!! So it became their 50th wedding anniversary quilt. They have been on many journeys and lived in many places, so that's why I chose the zig zag quilt pattern and the road fabric.
I taught a bunch of classes, as usual.
I taught this young lady and her mother how to quilt. (Her mom didn't want to be photographed, but her quilt turned out great too!)
I taught the Washi Tunic to a group of girls.
And then this cake was my "graduation" cake. Rob was in the Philippines for his birthday, so we (me and the church friends) ate the ocean cake in his honor. : )
(The sand is brown sugar, but you should use raw sugar for a better color)
Before Rob left we went to the Stuttgart Jazz Open. We went for Jamie Cullum. It was our third time seeing him, and by far his best concert that we've been to. He was so amazing that night!
That's a palace behind the stage. One of the neat things about living in Europe!
Through a crazy turn of events I bought a VESPA!!!! Yes I did! To make a very long story short - I got an amazing deal on this and paid way less than the retail price. I couldn't pass it up. It is SO.MUCH.FUN!!!
So that was July. Just one more month in our crazy life!
