Well Summertime has arrived! I am really enjoying our new place. No more hot, hot summers for 4 or 5 months. We'll get some heat later in the Summer, but right now it's warm and sunny with some breezes. Just perfect in my opinion!
I've really been enjoying all the creative blogs out there. It helps to keep the inspiration up and find new and fun things to make. My 1930s swap fabric has been calling to me. At first, I was going to match it up with some nice, bright white and do a Irish chain pattern. But I don't keep white in the house, only buy it if I need it for some charity blocks or baby blocks. So I couldn't wait to go buy some white, and just decided to do something different with the 30s fabrics....I wished I would of waited. I use some of the fabric in a pinwheels pattern, and have decided that it's just too 'busy'. I should of used some solid, either for the pinwheels or the background...so it's back to the drawing board. I'll have to get some solids to use, or go with white.
We're gearing up for Summer at the Q&N too. We have a table runner swap in progress right now. Gilly from Australia is my swap partner. I had fun coming up with a pattern for her, to fit her octagonal kitchen table. Can't show it to you yet though, as it's a surprise and I don't want to Gilly to see it.
We also have a mystery weekend coming up next month. I'll give you a positive date on that soon. That will be super, as always! Jess makes awesome mystery quilts.
What are you doing with your Summer? Any vacation plans? My summer will be full of getting our new place in shape. And getting ready for the cold winter months.
Stop by the Q&N, and see what we're up to. We have lots and lots of albums full of inspiration for you!
Till next time...
