Every Finish Is Good!

Posted on | July 11, 2012 | 12 Comments

This was an easy quilt to finish. All the piecing was done and it had already been sandwiched together several months ago. All that needed doing was the quilting and binding. Too easy!

And a simple backing of Christmas decorations.

I am slipping in a few more photos from our trip. This amazing building is City Hall in the centre of Philadelphia. We did a guided tour of the building, ( not all 700 rooms), which included going through many of the mayoral chambers and then going to the top of the tower ( by lift). There is a viewing platform located right at the top just under the statue of William Penn.

It is 549 ft to the top of the tower. The statue itself is 37ft tall.

This is the stunning view. This photo is looking down  towards The Philadelphia Museum of Art. (Think the steps in the Rocky films.)
