We have smoke from forest fires overwhelming us some days. Isn't stopping me from playing tennis daily but sure makes for a lot of soot in the air.
I have made six but these are the first three that are quilted and bound and labelled... ready to go!
And I worked on another row by row, this one from Grandma's Attic in WA.
This is a layer cake that threw me for a bit of a loop when I put the blocks up on my design wall... am sure I have just spent so much playing with 'modern' quilt ideas (with lots of calm neutrals) and this one is very bright and at first, felt overwhelming... am getting used it and my Wednesday Quilt Diva group really liked the blocks and colours and brightness so am living with it for awhile until I decide on sashing the blocks or no sashing and just go for it!
Bonnie Hunter on her Quiltville site has put out a tumbler challenge for leaders and enders so I cut up a bunch of odds and ends fabrics that were a bit girly and this is what is happening so far! Bright and happy and definitely scrappy.
So, there you have my production from the last few weeks. Preemies will get finished and I think September will have a long list of tops ready for quilting and binding. They are predicting rain for us here in the Pacific Northwest which is wonderful for the forest fires, trees, plants and the grass (and maybe I will be able to wash my car in the rain?)... but will mess up tennis.... but will keep me home and maybe more projects will get finished?
