Summer quilting

A wonderful package came my way from Natalie. My first winnings! Woo hoo! And aren't they dandy to boot. A great big thank you, Natalie. I can't wait to use them.

Summer has officially arrived and we intend to live every sunny minute to the fullest!

I had a helper in the flower bed today. She arranged her gloves exactly like Mama's. I really wish these days would never end.

But I guess if you're a real (dork) quilter, you wish for those moments that are *too hot* so you have a good excuse to head inside and sew.

About 25 blocks done on this one now. It continues to be a joy to make and watch what is created at the end of a day. A few more garments need some stabilizer, but after that it will flow much faster.
Hope you are enjoying your summery days as much as we are!


  1. So glad you got your FQ's in the mail! Your summer fun looks great. Your strawberry patch must be huge! I get about three berries a day. (If the birds don't get them first!) and your momory quilt is shaping up nicely. Can't wait to see that one finished.

  2. What fun fabric to get in the mail!! I LOVE the chubby legs in one of the pictures. Oh how I miss those days!! (only to be able to squeeze them though!) I do love that they are 11 and 8 and can do for themselves now!

  3. Are those jeans I see in that quilt? How is that to sew! I LOVE that quilt, what a great idea to give loved clothes a new life. :) Thanks for stopping by and leaving a link! -Allison

  4. Stephanie...

    I continue to literally be moved to tears every time I check the blog and see the progress you have made on the quilt. I am also glad to see that you are enjoying summer!!!

    Peter has been talking a lot about "Phillit" (his way of saying Phillip) and Daddy in heaven. The quilt will be such a wonderful, tangible memento of them both.

    Blessings and sunshine to you!


I would love to hear from you! Sew lovely of you to comment.
