Summer is Quilting Time

When it's too hot to be outside for very long, it's a great time to quilt.

I got caught up on The Splendid Sampler. except for a hand embroidery block--that's taking way too long:

I kept up with Circa 2016:

The red Churn Dash block was my leader/ender for these two little Circa blocks---I also finished all my tumblers today and now just have to sew the last few rows to the "mother ship" and that large quilt will be done.

Today I gathered several days of projects to work on at a private retreat I'll be enjoying this week with my two best quilty friends.  Each summer we get together, just the 3 of us, for a few days to enjoy sewing and catching up with each other.  One lives 2 hours away and we don't get to see her near as often as we'd like.  I'm really looking forward to it.

And this past weekend we were thrilled to have Stella and her folks here for a wedding.  She is so pleasant almost all of the time, very funny, loves music and dances to any beat she hears.  It was so good to get to love on her for a bit.  And she was very popular at the wedding--everyone wanted to hold her and she let them.  It was wonderful to have her here.

Let's Quilt!



  1. I love the block with the circle of hexie flowers. Very pretty.
    Oh, Stella's a cutie! Her photos make me miss my granddaughter that went home last week. : )

  2. Your GD is so cute. Enjoy her as she will be grown way too fast.

  3. Cute and sweet GD! Love the flower wreath hexagon block!
