Back to school! Summer is fun but I really enjoy the routine and structure that comes with school. Plus, the weather cools down and so do the weeds! My garden was such a failure this summer. I couldn't keep up with it.
First, I got a late start on planting. Then only half of what I did plant even grew. I found myself so busy (and strangely tired!) that I hardly spent the time in the garden it required. August took over my garden with weeds and now I am looking forward to cooler weather.
I did manage to get a couple quilts sewn this summer.
This was my first 60° quilt. I'm really happy with the way it turned out!
I absolutely LOVE the back! The colors and quilting look awesome together. It's posted in my shop.
This other quilt is for my cousins new baby boy. Mama is a bright and bold sort of woman and I felt these fabrics fit the bill quite well.
I really enjoyed pulling fabrics from my stash for this. I normally wouldn't match several of them together, but with the combination as a whole I really like the way it came together. So much so that I will probably be making a couple for my home!
It is back completely with Kona Aqua and bound with Kona Chartreuse.
Guess what!? I turn 30 tomorrow. Crazy, people!
I'm looking forward to my 30's. No real reason, just seems like a great age.
I have something special planned for my readers, but your going to have to wait until tomorrow to find out what it is. It will be for ONE DAY ONLY so don't miss it. It'll be good!
