Scrappy Summer 2016 Update

Saturday, July 23, 2016 in GARDENING, QUILTING by 2 Dogs Studio

The past few days have been VERY HOT and VERY HUMID. Bad news – to hot to be in the garden. Good news – more time for quilting. Summer is moving along quickly and I haven’t shared the progress I am making on my Scrappy Summer challenge quilts.

SS 16 - #1 Jewel Box

The blocks are made and now I am auditioning sashing fabric. Should go together fast once I decide.

SS 16 #2 Bow Ties

For the ‘jewel box’ quilt (above) I decided that I wanted a variety of backgrounds but I am using one single background for the ‘bow tie’ quilt. I have had a few ideas on the design on this quilt but think I have FINALLY decided on one. All of the bow tie pieces are ready to start sewing them into pairs.

Couldn’t resist sneaking in a garden photo. Isn’t this a luscious color for a day lily?

Enjoy the weekend !
