I know the entire country is experiencing unusual heat so I really
can’t shouldn't complain, but… we are just not used
to this kind of weather in Maine. I live in a 150 year old house which normally
stays relatively cool when we close it up. NOT this summer! I rarely say it
is too hot to quilt, but this stuff gives new meaning to “quilt ‘til you wilt”!
I have managed to finish a few more Noah and Matilda blocks (in the wee hours of the morning with a window air conditioner going full blast).
I love the antique neon I used for the basket on this one. And, the neon reproduction I used for the flower is one of all time favorites. It’s from a Kay England collection and I surely wish they would reprint it!
I love this block as well. For some reason it is very relaxing to applique symmetrical designs. Funny, because I consider myself a very asymmetrical person!
And, Cyndi (Busy Thimble) sent me this photo of our friend Ann and her wonderful bee quilt. Ann is just as sweet as her quilt!
Hope you can all stay cool and get some quilting time!
