Almost There

Well here it is Monday and I made it through the weekend. I read lots, and enjoyed the weather, taking Chloe for her long walk in the mornings before it got too hot. Now, let me clarify, hot here this summer has been mostly under 30C or 80F, but when you are a Golden Retriever, that is plenty hot! I sat on the deck to eat lunch and dinner, and just generally relaxed. I got lots accomplished in the sewing room, and have prepared my mother-in-laws lamps for spray painting.

This is the quilt top that had the one block (in the middle of the quilt!) turned the wrong is now fixed and  ready to be quilted. Yesterday I put the backing together, but it is too warm to quilt any tops right now.

I had no quilt holder at home to help me, but wanted to take a picture outside. These colours are very true and it is one of those simple quilts that is easy to make and looks great. The pattern is from Camille Roskelley, and it is called Piece of Cake (2).

Most of us here in Alberta don't have, or feel we need air conditioning except for a few weeks a year. Yesterday I put the binding on a lap quilt in anticipation of doing some handsewing in the evening, but it was so hot doing that job, that I just couldn't wait to get it done. So, no more of that until fall. My sewing room gets very warm, as it is west facing, and has lots of windows.

The blocks for the baby quilt I am making from 3 Sisters Aviary are done.

So,  these go in the line up along with Dana's pink and black quilt and Stella Blue to be made into a flimsy.

Have a great week.
