Have Doc will travel

Well this post took about a week to develop.   I finished my version of "Doc" last week and took a photo before we headed to Kure Beach for a long weekend.  No problem as our hotel advertised the best wi-fi on the beach.  I'll write my post when we get there.   After a few attempts, I knew I would not be able blog anything.  I'll just email Sherri or Sinta and send a photo.  After 2 hours I was able to attach a photo, clicked send and hoped for the best.   Wasn't sure if it would make it for the parade or not.  Luckily it did.  

Our neighbors our expecting their first child, a boy, any day now.   I thought this pattern would make a perfect baby quilt.  I chose Peak Hour for the main fabrics and found another moda line in the same colorway for the background.  I wanted a smaller quilt, one to throw over the car seat...I decided to go with 4 blocks, but added a wider sashing.  It turned out a perfect size.  I decided to hand quilt it, so I spray basted it before leaving for the beach so I could do a lot of this........

We spent more time than we usually do on the balcony just rocking, reading, and quilting.  A great relaxing weekend.  We also managed to spend some time here.....

We also found our way to the near by antique malls and quilt shops.  One day we took the ferry across to Southport.  Love that little town!  Of course, being that close to Calabash, we had to make a visit to the Christmas shop at Callahans!!! It was great to get away for a few days.....



  1. Looks like a wonderful and relaxing time. Very nicely done with your DOC.

  2. I love it, mine will be a baby quilt too. This pattern just looks so cute in all the fabric I see it in!
