The summer shop hops are the time for me to look for another inspiration fabric or two so that when Bonnie announces her colors, I will have several to choose from. I look for fabrics that have at least 4 colors I could use and know that I have in stash. This one worked out to be close to Bonnie's colors. It is also time for stocking up on neutrals!
Speaking of binding, this is complete...........
It was a mystery by Nancy McNally. I have named it "Shades of Love" and yes, it is a wedding gift.
It was done with a panto that has a heart like leaf in it with believe it or not, red thread. Auditioned others but that looked best. Hope they like it!
I potted the amaryllis bulb form my sister and it is doing well. The table mat is from my sister-in-law. So fun to have another quilter in the family. When the nieces and nephews graduate we collaborate on their quilts. This year will be Marina and her quilt will be a purple "Twinkling Star". We plan to start cutting in the next few weeks.
This week's project will be a Barn Quilt for my SIL. She has a separate building for her studio and it just needs something. Doesn't hurt that the colors are our other common (besides the brothers) bond, The Minnesota Vikings!
Finished the next block in the "Let's Go Camping" quilt by Pat Sloan. Nine blocks set on point and yes, I have an inspiration fabric for that also.
I also attended the St.Paul Winter Carnival Coronation. I had a young friend in the running for "Queen of the Snow". She did not win but she sure did herself proud! I found the pic for the late sixties and found out how much it has changed!
Last, but certainly not least, I finally scored at our local Salvation Army. I know I donate quilty type things along with fabric but have never found anything that I could use until now...........
$5.00...........I was pleased and walked out with a grin on my face. SCORE
Hooking up to Quiltville. There are some fabulous quilts on there and even some completed!
