Spending time with my great nieces and nephews is a favorite summer (or any) time adventure. I got to do just that yesterday and it was such fun!
What fun to have your grandson spend time with you! I enjoy doing flower gardernng in the summer ... now if I could only figure out to keep the deer from eating my flowers. Another fun thing I enjoy is going to Bluegrass Festivals.
Lynne, Cooper's Crossing is beautiful and handsome! Cooper sounds like a very thoughtful and loving young man. I enjoy our road trips we (hubby, son, dog, and I) take each year. My favorite was our Little House on the Prairie adventure all the way up to the Dakota and back down through Missouri. Love the Prairie!
Watching my grands swim competitively on their summer swim team is a simply delightful way to spend a summer evening in my world.
Cooper's Crossing is beautiful, as are all your designs. My adventure this summer is spending one day per week with our grandson Brady, who is 16 months old. He's my aerobic exercise!
Hiking the trails on the West Coast of Canada...doesn't get any better than that!! Thanks for the chance to win this wonderful book!!Love this quilt!Paulette
Last year DH and I traveled to Niagara Falls(awesome) and to the Pyrotechnic guild displays in Pa. it was a super fun week.
Looking forward to a bus trip leaving tomorrow (6/25) for the Shipshewana Quilt Festival! Thanks for the giveaway.
Hi Lynn, I was in your shop a couple of weeks ago. I love it! Glad you are close to me and I can come and visit. I love your fabrics and try to incorporate them in every quilt I make.Dawn
My sweet hubby and I have a bought a travel trailer and we are looking forward to doing some traveling this summer.
Every summer I look forward to attending the Quilt Odyssey show in Hershey, PA with some girlfriends.

My favorite thing to do is to take a week long road trip that starts with a general direction to head out on but no destination. We just wander and see what great things the USA has to offer.
We enjoy taking our ATV and traveling around "our neck of the woods" take a fishing pole and maybe hitting the pond or creek.. We also love to see the USA in our Ford or Chevrolet!!!!! Family is always great year around....
Love that X quilt - the colors are so great! Heading out on a camping trip in a couple days - no tents for me anymore - if I can't take my trailer I don't go! LOL
What ! Another great quilt! We are heading to the he Catskill Mts in NY for some fun!!!
Cooper's Crossing is a beautiful quilt. I really like the way the frame/inner border sets off this quilt. A really special vacation was one that my husband and I took to Maine and then on to Nova Scotia about 10 years ago. We have a camper to stay in. In Maine we ate our fill of lobster and seafood and visited antique shops. In Nova Scotia we camped along the south shores and visited small towns and shops. Later, we traveled along the northern shores with its red sand. It was in early July--mild weather, no rush and one of the most memorable vacations that Rick and I have taken.
Love your scrap quilt.
This summer will be full of travel time to see Grand Babies for birthdays. I love to be at those parties that my daughters have planned so meticulously. So much fun to see them play with all their little friends. They are growing so fast.
This is our anniversary week so my husband took it off and we have been going out kayaking. Today we went to a sandy island with RI on one side, Ct. on the other and Fisher Island, NY on the other, so beautiful spot to spend the day. No people near our spot and we enjoyed the shore birds in our area, so it was the perfect day.Debbie
I live in the Sacramento valley - it gets HOT here. My favorite summer activity is to take a road trip up into the beautiful Sierra's where it is always nice and cool.
My husband and I just nought a camper and we are looking forward to spending some wonderful weekends with our 5 boys. We are packing it up now, heading to Stone Mountain, GA this weekend. Our goal is to camp one weekend per month. Thanks for the chance to win your book. I've already got my featherweight packed for our trip. I'd love to take along a KT project!
We love camping with our grandchildren! In fact, we're leaving soon on our first adventure this summer. They only finished school this week. I know the weeks will fly quickly, but we'll treasure every minute with them!!
I love traveling with friends. I just got home from a trip to Missouri Star Quilts and Kansas Troubles. What fun!
After an extended illness a couple of years ago, I was "dragged" down to Pensacola for a week. The apartment was 3 flights up. It took me a week at that beautiful place, but at the end I was able to walk up without stopping to rest! What beatiful, warm, clear water. I named my first completed quilt after that experience.
I just want to let you know that I made a table topper using your layered patchwork technique, and it turned out beautifully! It was a gift for my sister, and she loved it! (But I wanted to keep it 'cause it was so cute!)
I'm excited this year to do a train trip w/my grownup grand in Denver. I'll take the train from here, upstate NY, then meet Thomas and we'll take the train to SLC. We've talked about doing a train trip together since he was a sprout! Jeannine aka j9knits
2014 has been it's own adventure - I moved into a Senior Idependent Living Coop last Fall. From 20+ years old house to bright new space, all new everything...including a qulting room all my own. Loving the adventure.
This year my time is being spent with my family. We are swimming, hiking and grilling out every chance we get.
Cooper's Crossing is a wonderful quilt. My summer adventure starts next week when I go and stay at a friend's who lives on a lake. Looking forward to lots of fun.
My favorite adventure is a simple one...laying with my grandaughter in her bed at night telling "made up stories" (as she calls it). Sometimes life is about the simple things!
Fun way to use a layer cake! I love to tend to my flower beds in the summer--wish we had a longer season.
Spending time with grandkids. Some sew, most camp and they all listen to stories about their parents when they were little. Thanks.
Our Grandkids visit the farm in the summer and they enjoy running and investigating.. I love watching them as they find the new born kittens and discovering things here on the farm.
I always look forward to summer because I get to spend a couple months with my grand daughter who lives in a different state. She loves coming to Kansas and spend time with us on the farm. Thanks.
I love your layered patchwork methods and I'm really looking forward to your new book. I have great summer-time memories of my childhood family trips back to Iowa from So. California. The adventures along the way were just as memorable as the destination and seeing the relatives.
Love this quilt. Favorite summer adventures were trips we took on a boat that my father built. Some times they were day outings, but other times they were for a couple of days. One year we were on our way home and a storm came. A really bad storm! We had to go thru the locks on our way home, and luckily we were near the locks. A tug boat was there waiting to go into thru the locks. We were able to tie up to the tug boat, and able to get out of our boat and walk around. If the tug had not been there, they would not have let us in the lock during the storm. To this day, I am not sure how we made it thru the storm in one piece.
Lynn and Robert, you have a great retreat space. I enjoyed my weekend there.
I love your Cooper's Crossing Quilt. Thanks....Lana Drum
I am on a great summer adventure right now ! I am up in Alaska spending a week with my 2 grandsons! My first visit up here- is it beautiful !
Cooper's Crossing is gorgeous....I love your layering technique!! We usually like to go home to New Hampshire to visit our families but this year they are planning to come down here to No. Carolina. I can't wait!
Great quilt - I love it!We're hoping to go to the coast this summer !
Congrats to Deb.Neat technique.Favorite summer adventure is going to the beach.
Hi, Congrats to Deb! Cooper's Crossing is so neat!Thanks for sharing! firstname.lastname@example.org
We will be staying close to home this summer. That's all right with me as I have my garden to enjoy.
I love the pattern. I am having all six of the grandkids here this weekend. It will be very busy but so much fun. Ann P.
My favorite times during the summer are when all eleven grand kids are here. 8 of the 11 live here in Oklahoma, but 3 live in South Carolina. They have so much fun when everyone is here. Our favorite activity is chasing fireflies. I remember having such much fun doing it as a child, but watching my kiddos is so much more fun. The best things in like are truly simple things.
My favorite summer adventure has to be my quilting "retreat" week at a friend's studio/barn in North Dakota. It's a great week of obsessive quilting (this year we put together two queen size and two throw size tops!) catching up, great food, fun, and laughter.
I am a caregiver so I don't have a favorite summer adventure. I just enjoy the sunshine and fresh air! Open windows! I do have a favorite hobby and that is making quilts when I can get the time to sew! Your line of fabrics are my style. email@example.com
Our favorite adventure is spending a night at Jersey Jim Fire Lookout Tower. It's an old Forest Service fire tower that was used to spot wildfires and is on the San Juan National Forest. It's 55 feet off the ground and has no electricity. The views are spectacular, especially the stars at night. This is the third year that we'll be doing this.
Hi, we love spending time with the grand kids. Whether we are at their house in the pool or as we say here "down the Jersey Shore" riding waves or building sandcastles! It's always a good time!
That's easy, time with my granddaughter!!! She is just 15 months and loves to play outside!!
Long week-end in door county - Sister Bay, Wisconsin
Beach and lake weekends, quiet times, just stitching away with quilty friends!!
I look forward to early August to do the Minnesota State Shop Hop! Hubby is my chauffeur, we travel to a different area every year! Thanks for the chance to win a copy of your new book!Take care, Leslie
I enjoy spending time with my grandchild also. I hope we are creating wonderful memories.
No grandchildren but my husband and I enjoy camping at the state or national parks. Heading to Yosemite next week.Charlotte
