Did you know it’s Summer?





Well, it sure is here!! It was 102 on Saturday, 104 on Sunday and predicted to be at least 101 today. I am fondly remembering the freak snowfall we had last winter.

So, of course, I spent most of Sunday in the studio, next to the air conditioner.














What I worked on was my orphan blocks that I showed a couple of weeks ago.

















Then I posted this picture of the quilt design I came up with in EQ7.















And today I have this (on my design wall).

I have sewn three rows together and hope to be finishing the rows today. This should be the center of the quilt but I haven't cut the borders yet. This quilt has gotten a lot bigger than I originally planned so I am not sure what I am going to do. Stay tuned.

  1. Love that quilt you designed. I am still learning my way around EQ7......but I'll get the hang of it eventually. As for the heat, we had temps that exceeded 100 a week or so back (with very high humidity at the same time) so I know how you are feeling with that. The weather is just crazy!

  2. Nice blocks. I have EQ6 but found it incompatible with my Mac. And of course I had used all of my updates.....

  6. Would you mind sending some heat to the northwest?? We don't need the humidity, just some heat. ;)
    Your design is fabulous!!! Can't wait to see what you do next!

  8. I am so glad I am not in the south right now with the heat wave you are all suffering from. Friends from home keep sending me e mails telling me how hot it is - 100+ for days now. I got a message from one that said it was 85 when she woke up! not for me - it was 51 here in Montana :)

  15. LOVE the quilt! Great job! As for heat, I'm in the central valley of Calif and we're used to having had at least a dozen days of over 100 by now but we're experiencing the coolest summer ever! Only 1 day a 103 and the rest have been in the hi 80s low 90s. I'm loving it but the rest of the country's suffering for it.

    Sorry. . .
