I really enjoyed making this one a couple of years ago. Had fun picking out the colors and piecing it too.

Well, here we are in the last dog days of summer. Maybe they are more cat days though, as Casper and Midnight surely do like to be out on these hot days, lazing in the sun.

I'm posting more pictures of what I've been working on. Having so much fun designing and playing with patterns I have both in my stash and in my mind.

August update

Almost done with the maple leaf quilt. Just finishing the binding. Hope to get some pics this weekend and post to the blog.

Life has been rushing by, not near enough time to quilt. There was a 30% off every bolt sale at "Gramma Fannie's" Quilt Barn in Berlin, Ohio. Spent WAY too much money on fabric. Brought home 18 cuts of fabric, a birdhouse stencil and a "Quilt in a Day" flying geese ruler. Also, learned from one of the ladies there how to make smaller round centerpieces like the ones they sell. Can't wait to get started and make some new ones for my own decor and for gifts.

I have also found the fun of making my own purses and bags. I'm learning as I go and having lots of fun doing it.
