Summertime, and I am loving it even though I am not a huge fan of really hot, humid days. But, I am loving the sun. Since I am originally from WA state, where we do not see the sun a lot, I try to enjoy it as much as possible.
I have four new blocks to share from the Modern Stitching Bee group and an almost complete top.
First two are from Leanne. They took a little scenic tour getting to my house but I am so glad they made it safe and beautifully.
We made two 12 1/2″ blocks for each partner.
Love them! Thank you Leanne from She Can Quilt. (Love the Briar Rose strawberries).
The next two are from Rhonda at Quilter In the Gap. Love them so much!!
It has been fun seeing all the variety of fabric that make up each of these blocks. These are the perfect block design to use because they include a large variety of prints. Thank you again Rhonda, I love them, (especially all the low volume)!! Be sure to check out their blogs, they have great inspiration on there.
This is not a great picture, but I wanted to share a little bit of what all of my blocks will look like put together for my finished quilt. I think they go perfectly together. I am so thankful for such kind and generous women who have made all of these blocks for me, I know it will turn into a beautiful quilt that I will treasure!
Since it is summer, I thought I would share this cute little hummingbird that I saw out of my kitchen window this morning. I put that feeder up about a month ago. It hasn’t seen very many birds because there is still a lot of syrup in it. I just happened to see a little bird there on the weekend, so now I check regularly. Happy days!!
I hope you are enjoying your summer. I sure am, lots of grilling, watermelon, cherries and corn on the cob. I come from a family of corn on the cob lovers. It was very pleasant yesterday, my son and I went for a walk and then sat on the back deck enjoying the fresh air. What have you been doing this summer?
Today will be for some more catch up sewing, I am so excited about my little visitors I have coming soon. I have lots to do to get ready for them!!
Have a great day and weekend!
