Summer School Blush..or Summer's Blush School

Hello Everyone,

I said earlier this week that it was going to be a busy one, and it was.  I taught the Summer's Blush class on Wednesday.  I had a small creative group that worked hard all day.  Thank you all for such a fun day and making my pattern come alive in your beautiful fabric selections. 

Cindy put several pinwheels together and has many more cut just waiting to be sewn.

She is making her quilt out of this beautiful combination of Civil War fabrics.  Just yummy!

JoEllen is going to have all polka dots for the center pinwheels.  You know I love polka dots!

She bought this wonderful fabric collection while on a trip a few years ago.  It is going to be perfect for this pattern.

She has some great material for her flanges which will look super with the border fabric.

Pat, recently retired after 42 years of teaching, is going to keep herself busy over the next few weeks making pastel pinwheels.

This is going to be so pretty next to her sashing fabric.  You'll just have to wait and see it next month, since I forgot to take a picture of it!  Just because it is Summer School doesn't mean the girls get off without homework!  Their assignment for the next month is to have fun and be creative while quilting to their heart's content!

Today is a family get-together day.  Our youngest grandson turns the big THREE this weekend so it's party time!

As always,



  1. Wow, what a busy week. I love the blocks from Tuesday's class and Wednesday. It's so nice to see the variety of fabric. Happy B-day to your grandson.

  2. I'm liking this summer school more and more, Lynn!

  3. Envy that's me all over! I have to complete a wedding quilt and I'm doing Jo's Club so that's home work and I cut out four table runners at our Quilt Group on Tuesday! I'm having such a hard time, it's as if this pattern is a magnet and keeps talking to me, The more project the harder it is to pick which one to work on... Kind of a bad thing to do but I never get boarded! Every time I go to pull something or look for something from my stash another one of two selections go to my Summer Blush Summer School stack! Love it, I've been dreaming of pinwheels all month. Have fun at the party! I know the Lovely Grandma will make it extra special~ Love, Laughter and Joy! Don't forget the balloons~

  4. The quilts are all going to look great and so different to one another.

    My oldest grandson is 13 today. Eek, he's a teenager!

  5. Enjoy those little ones!
    Love to see what your students work on n class. Thanks for sharing.
