I finally finished this large, customer’s Celtic Knot quilt. This took a long time to quilt (30+ hours), and I got delayed due to the heat wave we experienced here last week. I got the idea of the outside border design from Deb Levy’s instructions on MQ Resource. I think it works well with the theme of this quilt. Luckily I have air conditioning, but my studio is upstairs, over the garage, and it’s the warmest room in the house. We’ve cooled off now, and it’s been in the 80’s instead of 107+.
This weekend I’m going with my friends to our quarterly quilt retreat. I’m so looking forward to it. I’ll be able to work on some of my own projects. I’m not sure which ones I’ll be bringing, I haven’t had the time to even think about it. It really doesn’t matter anyway, I just enjoy being with my friends. I’m so fortunate and blessed.
I’ve been receiving fabric postcards from a postcard swap I participated in on MQ Resource. It’s the first time I’ve been involved in a swap, and the first time I’ve ever made a fabric postcard. It was a lot of fun to be a part of. Here’s the postcards I’ve gotten so far. Don’t they look colorful? The theme was lyrics from the Beach Boys song, “I get around”, or anything that represents summer to you. It’s been fun going to the mailbox and finding another card. I’m easily amused, it doesn’t take much!
