The Last Month of Summer

Dear Blossom of Friendship Quilters,

The Scrappy Leaves quilt is all pieced together. This is a fun quilt to make. The borders were challenging and took me quite a bit of time arranging and rearranging the sections. I would put all of the pieces up and stand back and squint at them until I think I got the colors in the right order. I'll get it on the quilting machine next week and there it will stay for quite some time. This quilt is from the book called Maple Leaf Quilts.

This is actually the back of the quilt. I went under the deck to take a picture of the back while the afternoon sun was streaming through. Doesn't it look just like a stained glass window?

Zinny isn't so little anymore. She decided to pose in front of the backside of the quilt up on the deck. What a ham.

We have our six-year-old granddaughters with us this week before they head back to school. We spent the day at Calaveras Big Trees State Park. Those two little girls played in a small creek for most of the afternoon.

It's time to start thinking about Autumn. Have you noticed that it's starting to get dark earlier? The sun is taking it's time coming up in the morning too. Occasionally up here in the mountains, you get a fleeting feeling of Fall in the air. You really can't put your finger on's just "that" feeling that summer is coming to an end.

Enjoy the last month of Summer while making a quilt for Autumn.

As always,
