It has been a rather long time...
In my part of the world, which would be central Alberta, Canada, July is THE month of the year. For beautiful weather, that is. And for birthday parties, and camping trips and Bible camps and splashing in the pool. But one thing it is NOT the month for is sewing, or quilting, or blogging.
But I did want to pop in and show you the one quilt I've made this month. OK, I guess it was made in June...
This one was made for someone very special to me. (I don't know if she ever reads this here blog so I won't say anything too gushy or personal and embarrass her!) She graduated this year and per my usual way of doing things, I only decided a week ahead that yes, I was going to make her a quilt.
I had a few special pieces of fabric that I wanted to incorporate, and I wasn't sure how to put them all together in a cohesive way. I decided to use an aqua solid as the background and make wonky stars featuring some of these special prints.
This backing did NOT photograph well! In real life it's really a lovely earthy-looking fabric. She loves the outdoors and horses, so it was just perfect for this quilt.
And on another note, here are a few great links to help you waste a bit more time at your computer!!
Ok, I would really like EVERYONE to read this one. Beautifully written, and I was going Yes! Yes! Yes! when I read it.
Here's a fun project that I'll be doing with my Bible School class.
And a couple great quilting blogs that I've just stumbled on lately: Daintytime and NanaCompany
See you in August!
