Well, the lazy days of summer are nearly here; it will officially be summer in my part of the world in just a few days. Except the days haven't been so lazy. I've been catching up on lots--quilt-related and not quilt-related (washing window screens and windows, cleaning patios, sorting and de-cluttering). It feels good to be checking things off my list--and on my own time-table. My RicRac quilt is quilted and bound and officially being used, too.
I just love the meandering hearts quilting pattern.
The quilting always looks so pretty from the back, too!
And this was kind of a surprise--I know the lighting isn't great here, but I was surprised to see how well my French General reds and blues looked with the Minick & Simpson reds and blues of this other quilt. I might just have to make a scrap quilt combining left-overs from both of these quilts...
Yes, this is one of my favorites thus far this summer.
I've been designing quite a few projects on EQ lately--guess that has taken up some of my sewing time. Oh, and I've also done a little stunt sewing lately--sewing that I won't be able to share for quite a while. Some of Anna Maria's Loulouthi sits on my cutting table...
And this stack of Terrain waits patiently for me--in fact, I have several plans for this bundle! On schedule for today--a family BBQ, and hopefully some Farmer's Wife blocks!
Also, congratulations to Lindsay, who won the giveaway from Sew Obsessed!
