A Block - Chester County Criswell Quilt

I do enjoy cutwork! So, I've begun this block for the road. See the Chester Co. Criswell Quilt Blog for lots of interesting stuff! With no pieces to keep up with or different thread colors to deal with, its is an easy travel project. This piece will accompany dd and I on a short West Coast College Visit trip. She will visit 2-3 campuses and meet with four coaches from three schools to get a better idea of what she likes. I'm hoping she will narrow down the field a little bit!
We will also enjoy a lovely day at the county fair in LA with cousins Brenda & John and will view her award-winning knitting on display there. And, there will be a Jubilee birthday celebration for yours truly on Sunday evening. We will dine at a great Thai restaurant, in addition to enjoying each day with our gracious host and hostess's wonderful gourmet meals! Doesn't it sound great!!

Have a great Labor Day holiday everyone!

P.S. In case you are wondering...I HAVE been working on those last 2 Luscious Lemon leaves, but they will have to wait until for the final stitches until I return from this trip.

Hi Wanda, I hope you had a great day. It's interesting to see how you have tacked/basted around your CCCQ block, especially around the outside edge. Was this done by machine?
