Last night was the finale of the TRADOC band's summer concert series, Music Under the Stars. The finale always features, as the last number, the 1812 Overture with the accent of real cannon fire from howitzers. If you have never heard a performance of the Overture with cannons, I highly recommend it!
The park where the concerts are held is the place with the neat fence that I like to use in photographing my Schnibbles, so I brought along Canasta. We have learned where to park that is close to a good, scenic spot, so I took some pictures and then we put it in the car, got out our chairs, bug spray, beverages, etc. and walked over to the concert area.
Once I got the center of the quilt done, I decided to use a print for the border. I also knew right away that I wanted to scallop the border, so I cut the border wider than the directions, at 4 1/2 inches.
I did keep all of them in the same dark red as the background.
This park really is a great place for pictures!
After the photo shoot, I put the quilt away in the car and we headed off to the concert. The event was opening with a performance by the Fife and Drum Corps from Colonial Williamsburg.
I love the Fife and Drums! When I saw them I had an idea so I ran back to the car for Canasta.
It now has a new name: Colonial Canasta!
Have a great weekend!
