First on the list......
I have several quilts hanging in my house and thought that I would show you another one today.
This simple quilt holds a special place in my quilty heart!
I bought the fabrics for it when I visited France eight years ago. Some of the squares were made by cutting up Provincial print cloth napkins. I stayed with my friend, Susan, in Germany during that trip and pieced the quilt in her basement sewing room. Ah, memories!
Every time I look at the wall hanging, I am reminded of the fun vacation in the spring of 2002.
I love hanging different quilts in this spot, but this one stays up most of the year.
Next up....here's my box of 1.5 inch hexagons.......over 300 made so far and closing in on the 400 I need for the tablecloth I have in mind. I have yet to begin sewing the hexies together!
Next week the Kansas City Modern Quilt Guild will be meeting and I have been busy making the blocks for a block exchange I'm in. Andrea requested Plus Blocks and provided the aqua dot fabric. She also hinted that she likes red and grass green...hopefully these will fit the bill.
I also volunteered to make two 12 inch blocks in orange and blue to be included in charity quilts for a local children's hospital. I've been looking for orange fabrics for this project as well as another virtual bee I belong to where orange seems to be a very popular color!
The temperature has been crazy hot here the last few days, with the dew point out of sight!
The only sane thing to do is stay inside and work on quilts. Am I right?!
Joan had a contest on her blog, Wishes, Kind and True, a while back. I was so excited to correctly guess the missing fabric in this Amy Butler Love charm pack. She sent me two charms of each fabric in the entire line, so I am having fun ogling all this yumminess!!Lucky me, I also was randomly chosen by Heather of A la Mode Fabric to win another charm pack of fun fabrics by Heather Ross. These cute prints are perfect for a baby quilt I am getting ready to start on!
Here's the baby and her big sister, Lula sitting on their daddy's lap this morning. That precious 5 pound bundle of joy is my sixth grand baby, Jane Susanne, fresh from God.
See, I told you that I was lucky! No, not lucky. Blessed beyond measure!!
