I told you in my last post that I was sequestering myself away for the week.....and this is what I've accomplished so far.
Summer's Blush quilt top is done!!! I guess I really should name it Autumn's Blush....what do you think? I haven't finished writing the pattern yet. I love, LOVE to work with polka dots, stripes, plaids and checks. In case you are wondering, the quilt is displayed on an old sled by the wood-burning stove.
Fig Tree & Co. fabric. I have been collecting the fabric since A Day in the Country fabric line was released. This quilt contains a little snippet from each of the Joanna's gorgeous fabric lines. The border is from Breakfast at Tiffany's, the newest line.
I brought Sallie's quilt up to the cabin this week. She was finished showing off in the shop. I put Sallie on the master bed for a pleasant change. One of the rights of passage of wintering in the mountains is flannel sheets and electric blankets, which went on all the beds yesterday. Changing quilts around means washing and ironing dust ruffles too. Sometimes I drive myself crazy when I decide to change things up. Three hours of lost quilting time, I'm finally finished! (Joe made the light out of a snowshoe for me. He can make anything.)
Suddenly I find myself doing Spring cleaning in October! The quilt from the master bedroom came into one of the guest bedrooms.
I'll try to get the new top quilted next week. It is 82" x 82" so it is going to take me a few days to get it done. It will involve quilting around each one of the little hexagon flowers!
Have a great week. There is a quilt show at Ironstone Winery this weekend. I'm afraid it is going to be a bit rainy here in sunny California.
