Scrappy Summer #1

Wednesday, July 9, 2014 in QUILTING by 2 Dogs Studio

Even though I have been spending a little more time in the garden, I was still able to finish my Scrappy Summer #1. The quilt ‘Trip Around the Checkerboard’ was a fun and easy quilt to make. Of course, I had to add some subtle design elements. If you look REAL close you might be able to find the three diamond shapes that are outlined in maroon/purple, teal, and rust/red.

I have made some progress with Scrappy Summer # 2. It is the easy ‘Greek Cross’ block. I have seen it in many of the blogs that I follow but it seems appropriate that I am attracted to Teje’s post – she lives in Greece. Check out Teje’s post and tutorial here. Now, I just have to decide on a quilt name. Any suggestions?

I find it hard to believe that it is already almost the middle of July. Where has summer gone? Lately, it has been too nice to do a lot of quilting but then again it has been too nice to worry about gardening. Over the weekend, with my brother’s assistance, I purchased an Ipad Aire. Can I say ‘FABULOUS‘!   I am able to hang out in my porch sipping on some iced coffee and review blogs, email etc. I might even take some garden photos with the IPAD this weekend. The cone flowers are just starting to show some color along with a few of the day lilies.
