Bonjour, Montreal!

We dropped off son in Montreal last week. Hubby and son drove up (3 day drive) and I flew up and met them. Hubby and I drove home together (another 3 day drive). That way son could bring his stuff and we didn't have to leave Bowie as long.
 Montreal is beautiful city. There are many historic buildings and churches.
 Rue St. Catherine is all decked out for blocks.
 McGill University is a gorgeous campus.

 It feels almost medieval on some parts of the campus.
 Here he is, in front of the huge music building, where he'll be spending most of his time. We shopped and got him settled in his apartment, so not much sight seeing this time. It was so hard to say good-bye.  I felt like I was in Paris or Europe.  I can't wait to go back and see more of this city.
 Before I left, I laid out the the sheet quilt top on the kitchen table and pinned the layers to the batting and backing.


 I used my walking foot to machine quilt it. I just need to hand sew the binding to finish it off.
It's good to be home. Super hot here in Texas, but looking forward to cooling down this fall. Hope you are enjoying the last bits of summer.

  1. Hi Leslie, the pics from Montreal are beautiful. Such a lovely campus with historic buildings and architecture. Great pic of your son. I know it had to be hard to say Goodbye!! The time will pass quickly and I'm sure you'll see him again soon.

  2. Oh my goodness Leslie, Montreal looks so beautiful! I know it must've been hard to say goodbye to your son, but what a great place to visit. He architecture is amazing and I'm sure the food is incredible.
    Your quilt is sooo pretty with all those soft colors and vintage charm. I use my walking foot a lot. I'm looking forward to seeing your completed project, and where you're going to put it.

  7. what a beautiful campus and buildings...your son is a handsome dude..bet the girls there are gonna fight over his attention. xoxo
    I love your quilt...I've got all my fabrics washed, dried and pressed..just need to start cutting squares...I think a 5 or 6 inch block is what I'm going for. any smaller becomes such a time consuming affair to sew together...I've had the fabrics for awhile but wanted to wait until I had to stay inside due to colder weather to start on it. It's always hard for me to get started on the cutting...not sure why. Your quilt is going to be so pretty....
