Bright sun...Warm breezes...Fragrant flowers...Blue skies...Sips of cool lemonade
Fire Flies at night...Marshmallows...Giggles...Rainy afternoons...Picnics on the 4th of July...Walks in the meadow......with Goober the dog!
WHAT? It all sounded so soft and dreamy until Goober the dog came into the picture! HA!
This quilt was extremely hard to photograph. It's very light/whitish in color and the details are hard to get focused, but maybe you can get the jest of it here. I have found if you CLICK on the photos to enlarge they look better!
I came across these blocks about a month or so ago, about 9 of them I had left over from this quilt here. They are 11" in size and the 9 of them together would be the start of something good. I got busy pulling out more white and light strips and strings and paper pieced and paper pieced until I just couldn't stand it anymore!!! After all, I had just finished another strippy string paper pieced Victorian Spider Web here.
The 9 blocks I started with from the other quilt project had more dark creams and tans mixed in, but I wanted this Summertime quilt to be on the lighter whiter side. I scattered the darker blocks in among my newer light blocks and I think the mixture turned out ok.
It's scrappy strippy and Shabby but Chic!
It takes 2...8 1/2" paper pieced blocks to make 1 of these 11" blocks.
Finished quilt size is 75" x 65"
I plan on quilting it on both sides of the 'X' seams shown here and on both sides of the seams where I sewed the rows together.
OK....now where were we? Oh yeah...........Poofy white Clouds exploding in the sky...Floating in the Boat across the still Lake...Butterflies bouncing from flower to flower.........
GOOBER!......leave the butterflies alone!!!!!!
