Once again, I didn't have room to lay it out flat in my home for a photo, and the heat discouraged me from hanging it on the clothesline. Besides that, I was afraid that it would pick up dirt from the yard, as it measurd over 80 by 90 inches.
But I got the quilttop sent back to JoAnn and she was very pleased.
I am now nearing the end of piecing one of two couch-sized tops for her, using the same fabrics (if there is enough), but putting a red border on one, and a blue one on the other. I HOPE I can make myself piece the SECOND one !
Here's a peek at my progress thus far:
This is a pattern that was published in "Love of Quilting". It is called "Hero's Tribute", and was designed by Liz Porter. There are lots of 4 inch stars still to be added, and then rectangles of various background fabrics to fill in the holes.
My Rose of Sharon bushes are blooming now, as is my Butterfly Bush (not shown),
|Bugs are really prevalent this year, making a mess of all the foliage on these flowers.|
