Part of the reason it was late was that I wanted to see how the quilting might look, so I made another very similar quilt for myself to try out my ideas. The leaves turned out well, and I really like my corn.
I didn't want to stipple the background, so I did evenly spaced slanted lines which brings me to a question. Do you ever quilt the backing, batting, and top layer before adding the raw edge applique? I'm thinking that might be a better idea and plan to give it a try next time.
In case you are interested, here is the pattern info. My quilt is about 75% done, so I'm going to try and finish it up this week.
I finished sewing the label on the quilt about a half hour before Kristin and her girls arrived for "Ladies Lunch." (When their school has early dismissal, they come for lunch and a visit.) Emma is beyond excited when she sees them at the door and they love her, too. Because Emma had recently had a birthday, they came bearing cards and a gift.

Later that night I went to a friend's house to celebrate another friend's birthday. She had a delicious cake, but hers didn't squeak!!!
