What's Up

22 comments
The summer heat is here and it will be 99 degrees by the end of the week. My summer schedule is heating up too, but I will try to spend at least a few minutes most everyday doing something in my sewing room.  
I switched up quilts in my entryway and decided to display my Barns of Berks County quilt for the summer.  I know Lori is building even more barns and even a tractor, but I am delighted to have my barns finished and hanging up to enjoy.
I finished Mason's graduation flimsy over the weekend.  I know the fabrics may look kind of strange mixed together.  I used Lori's tumbler ruler and made lanterns with fabric that represent things about Mason and some filler fabrics thrown in to balance things out a bit.
The quilt turned out quite modern, which was the look I was trying to create.  I'm going to take it to the quilter Thursday but I'm kind of wondering what pattern I want to have machine quilted into it.  I'm so happy to have this finished and I really hope Mason will like it.

That's a great quilt for a male Nanette -- I'm betting Mason will love it!

And whoa! on the summer temps. You've got a month to get them under control. Do your best LOL!

Mason will love it!! Perhaps a simple quilting will better highlight the fabrics.
Enjoy your days...stay cool!!
