Summer Favorites

Well it's mid summer and feels more like the end to me. Hot, hot, hot! The weather here has been unusually hot and humid and the heat or being all closed up in AC has gotten to me! Some people in this house refer to me as 'cranky pants'! However, I have to agree with this the past few days. Hope something changes soon....phew!

Maybe finishing my big quilting project will help. It's a wedding quilt for a wedding Aug. 20, and today I finished up the 16 heart squares and 12 outside setting triangles. I have the corners to do and have reworked the middle from the original pattern and have to do this! More on this later.

At the moment that is keeping me from some more 'fun' projects I have in mind (or in my closet to be finished). Even straightening up my sewing room sounds good right now! So I have some old fun quilts to show! Also I'll introduce the girls!


This is Kiwi acting silly with a quilt as you go jelly roll and beach themed throw!


Here Ziva checks the stitching on a bargello quilt
that matches the fabric on my porch cushions!






Then Kiwi and Ziva hit the bedroom to show the cowboy throw(hard to see with Kiwi on it) and a favorite full size quilt of summer fabrics in a 9 patch. Makes me smile to see the fabrics from years and projects from the past!



Well that's it for now !
Still need to learn some placement on things but, I think this is readable! Bye for now....
