It's a brisk 55 degrees here today. Oh how I love this weather! The sun is shining brightly and the leaves are turning a riot of colors. I took the opportunity to snap a shot of the quilt top I finished yesterday. It is the Water Lily pattern from Sherri McConnell's book, "A Quilting Life". I am in love with this quilt and Sherri's book! The pattern is straight forward and fun to piece. I love how the fabric combinations make up a great secondary pattern and the watercolor feeling it gives. I used Jennifer Paganelli's "Circa" which was dreamy to work with. While I was outside I took some photos of the flowers that are hanging on. Soon the frost will take them away but I can enjoy them a little while longer. Today we celebrate Maddie's 19th birthday. This picture was taken last year on her 18th birthday which also was the day we took senior pictures. She is a freshmen in college now and I'm heading out the door to take her some cupcakes. Sweet blessings, friends!
