I've been a bit late in getting my blog posts out. My whole family has gotten some kind of virus and now I've got it too. Hoping to clear all the germs out before school starts next week. I sewed all day Monday and finished Erica's quilt which I've named the "Summer's End" quilt.
I have really enjoyed making this quilt. The colors are not something I would normally pick and I rarely use purple. The combination of color and pattern came together beautifully and I can hardley wait to get it quilted.
I like the colors so much and have such a large amount of fabric left over that I'm thinking of making a nine patch with a white background out of these fabrics.
Summer is truly beginning to wind down. I know that when my morning glories are in full bloom and longing to take over the house that it won't be long before there's that nip in the air and that feeling of anticipation. I got a chuckle out of this picture, it looks like the morning glory has decided it really wanted to grow on the trellis.
I have just started reading this book and I love it! It's a thick one, but so far well worth it. There is a bit of traveling between era's which intriques me and I highly recommend it!
