The month my son, his wife, and my three grandsons moved 1,424 miles to live 1.9 miles from my house.
In spite of that sweet distraction, I have been sewing.
As I walked this week at Oxbow Park I noticed tiger lilies blooming.
Orange reminded me of the two quilt tops I completed this month that I had not blogged about.
So I traveled back to the park and took quick mediocre pictures of them.
Wrinkles and all.
Quilting will help immensely I hope. And it is not nearly as washed out as this picture makes it seem.
Again, quilting will help.
And better photography too of course.
For one set of blocks I am using black, white, and gray fabrics;
the other set will be oranges, corals, yellows, and pinks.
I am not the biggest fan of sampler quilts, (which this exactly is!),
but I am going to make an effort.
I can imagine two very distinctly different quilts, not only in color but in block setting and size as well.
One "oh-I-have-an-inspiration-from-a-picture-I-just-saw" day,
it just happened.
My sister donated the quilting and finished the binding on French Quarter Christmas, a quilt I finished oh, about three years ago, or so.
This one will eventually be donated, where and when to be determined.
It turned out great!!
