10th finish of 2015, TDF and the gig

Here is my 10th finish for the year. This baby quilt turned out 38" x 47". I used King Tut thread to quilt it and warm and natural for the batting. It will be given to the new father on Friday at the band's next gig.

Saturday I left the house at 1 p.m. to head over to my brother's. Michael had a gig in Tallmadge on the circle.

We got to the circle or roundabout at 2 and unloaded the equipment. We set up the two tents, one for the sound board and the other for the merchandise and then my job was done for a while. Since the band didn't play until 7 I had time to walk the roundabout and get my steps in. We had a decent crowd and sold 13 CD's and 12 t-shirts. That was more than we were expecting. Michael and the band put on a great show and the crowd seemed to love it. The couple that organized the event were very happy. The best part is that it wasn't raining!

While I sat at the merchandise booth I worked on embroidering the rock t-shirt quilt. I added some stitching around the U.S. on the Rolling Stones shirt and did some quilting around the stars on the Clash shirt.

We have another gig on Friday.

While I worked on the baby quilt Sunday morning I watched the TdF. It was the Team Time Trial. My man Peter Sagan is now in the green jersey. The boys have the day off today and tomorrow will start the mountain stages in the Pyrenees.

I was really tired on Sunday because I didn't get home from the gig until 11:30 Saturday night and we had made a lot of trips back and forth from the trailer to the stage and visa versa that evening. I forced myself to working on the binding for the teal and purple quilt instead of just sitting doing nothing. It took me about 4 hours to get the binding on because for each side I needed to measure and cut the purple binding to fit the space. I just thought the binding would look better if it matched the blocks.

That is the quilting pattern we did on the quilt I am ripping out right now! It looks wonderful and I know the family will love and appreciate it. That is the best part!

Those concert photos sure do look better than last time's!
