I finally found a good quilt to show off this fabric! A group of us went to a quilt retreat a few weeks back and I got it mostly done. Today I put it all together. I love it!

Well I have been busy doing a lot of nothing this summer. Playing with the dogs, sewing and reading have been my days for the most part, but that's been good. Went away for a few days here and there, but nothing like I usually do all summer! It was good staying put most days. Here is the second to last block for Stitchers garden.

So I got an email from Michael's the other day and there was a pretty picnic setting with log slices used on the table! Of course I had to have some! I told Kenny and he just happened to be taking a few trees down for a client so log slices would be in my hands the next day. Yay! Funny how things come together sometimes. Kenny showed me how to use the planer to make them smooth.
Here he is taking over! It didn't bother me that he finished the planing. I need more practice at "feeling" how it works so that I don't leave ruts. I am going to have to sand them on my own and do the finishing as well. It's fun when Kenny gets involved in my ideas.

I have chosen a different color scheme for each block so I did this one purple and green. It's cool because you use a twin needle for several stitches and to make the center of the bigger flower. That is pin tucked fabric which I made with the twin needle. It was easy and fun to do. I think I only have two flowers left to do, then I can put it all together!

I'm on a roll now with this quilt! I cleaned my kitchen all afternoon and then got into this block. It's a rainy Fourth of July, so it was perfect for cleaning and sewing. I enjoyed this block very much.
