Historic Shiloh Church Field Trip

 We took a little field trip to Shiloh Church to photograph a patriotic red, white and blue quilt for a special Shop Hop project (remember to mark your calendars for the Carolina Shop Hop, July 8-16) this afternoon.
 Here is our quilt on the railing out front of this beautiful little historic church in our community. It's the mother church to many of our local Methodist and Baptist churches around the area.  Originally, a circuit rider minister came periodically to preach and parishoners drove up by horse and buggy to worship.

 Becky, Scout and I posing on the steps in front of our quilt which was sort of a round-robin project.  I pieced the blocks; Gen added the borders and Becky quilted and bound it!

 We had a few shots taken to make sure Scout was looking in the right direction in at least one. Had I known I would be in the shoot, I would have worn something different! LOL!
