I have my July and August blocks made for the Quilter's Planner challenge. I want to be finished the blocks by early October so I don't have to drag my fabric supplies back down south with me and then bring home the blocks to finish here. Why not just get ahead of the game?
And fresh raspberries along with a lovely bowl of blueberries. Picked from my buddy's house and no pesticides or chemicals so no washing of the fruit. Yum!
And Yippee!! My village quilt is bound and ready for the washing machine. I want to sleep under this and so will wash to remove any chemicals in the fabric. No, I do not prewash before cutting and all these houses were from my scaps buckets as well as the scrap table at the Langley quilt show and a scrap bucket that Jean Jones had for sale at our last guild trunk sale.
I have my red scraps pulled for my paper pieced string blocks and my rail fence blocks for Oh Scrap rainbow challenge for July.
And I am working on more teal/purple 16 patch blocks.
Plus, the pile of quilt tops with backings made and batting cut is waiting for the heat to arrive, later this week. When it is hot outside, it is perfect in my downstairs bunker. In the meantime, it is time to be in the garden harvesting zucchini and baking.
