Last night we drove up to Farlington Lake and spent a pleasant couple of hours visiting with some friends, listening to a great band, chowing on some grilled burgers, funnel cake, watermelon and homemade ice cream, and watching some Canada Geese float merrily by.

The weather was just perfect!  We didn't stay for the fireworks but I'm sure they were spectacular over the water.

Today I pieced the sashing  and joined the blocks of my California Baltimore. I opted to go with nine-patches instead of plain cornerstone squares.

Now I will add the outer pieced and appliqued border so that it will look like

We had one piece of Roast Sticky Chicken left, so I cut it up and used it to make 3 individual pizzas for supper

I love using frozen creamed spinach for the sauce, then pile them high with sauteed onions and peppers, feta and mozarella cheese, and chicken when I have it handy. Yum!

Finally, two more Dutch Treat blocksI finished on the 30th.  This makes 77 since April 1.

Hope my American friends have a happy and safe 4th of July and my international friends just have a great weekend!

I think your 9 patch corner stones adds soooo much more to the quilt than the plain ones!! The border treatment is going to be beautiful :0)
