    My husband set up the picnic table and plugged in my sewing machine and I went to town and finished this quilt for him. He helped by holding it onto the table so that it didn't get dirty on the ground.

    What a nice thing to do on a good day. Your DH is sure a keeper.
    And I'll bet he loves his new quilt.

    This really does take me back, way back to my childhood and watching Grandma in her rocking chair on the front porch. I was usually churning the milk for butter and buttermilk, but I got my turn on the needles but loved the old pedal machine a lot.

    I would have never thought of doing such a thing. It looks gorgeous so show us a full pic of it when you get done. Nothing like being a bit unconventional. :-)

    Sewing out of doors...how wonderful. I would love to do that except is was over 100 degrees today. Your quilt is fabulous. Even with a blurry photo we can see how fabulous it is. Lucky guy!

    Well you knows that me and my cat wuv's you. Just shake your head yes, (shake it harder my friend!). :lol: You must have threatened him with Strip Yahtzee! I told you that would work! :wink:

    What a hero that Charles is. I need a hero in my life. I actually have one, but he doesn't know it yet. ;-) Smooches from me and little BuBu.

    When we go camping, I take my sewing machine along and nine times out of ten, I sew outside. I have more room on the picnic table too!

    Quilting outside?
    Now this is a new idea to me! Can it be considered a sport if you do it outside?
    And such a beautiful quilt, too:)

    First - lovely quilt. It's sooo colorful!

    I too have sewn outside. At our cabin in Wisconsin while the fam is out boating. Just set the machine up in the shade, feel the breeze and go to town! If it's too windy it's kind of a drag though but that isn't too often.

    Great minds think alike! I'm planning to put mine out on the porch. The quilt is a beauty, by the way.

    Oh, that sounds so nice! You could really see the quilting on the black better in the daylight. Great quilt, so colourful. Unfortunately, the sun and I don't agree very well. I don't tan but burn to a crisp. To sew away the summer in a nice covered sceened in porch, sounds like paradise to me.
