Woodland Quilt (80 cm square) – I just love those little foxes with their babies all snuggled up. Lots of swirls and leaves and ditsy blooms in this quilt. Backed with a chocolate brown fleece, it’s very practical for little people, me thinks!
Peace Quilt (156 cm x 125 cm) – what we all wish for, some peace and calm in our lives. Think leafy prints, little birds and feathers … … … and relax!
City Bright (1m square) – a quilt designed for modern living! Vibrant colours and jolly city prints, with pretty houses, stylised flowers and calm pools of polka dots.
There’s another quilt that’s almost done too – with little brown hares, called Guess How Much I Love You! I hope to spend this afternoon sitting out in the garden, hand-stitching the binding on that one. And then it’s the weekend – yay! I must get to grips with the vegetation that’s beginning to take over in the garden, dead-head the roses in the hope of a second blooming and maybe stain my little deck with preservative. That’s boring though – I’d much rather be quilting or stitching in the sunshine!!
Enjoy your weekend – what have you got planned?
PS – I’ll be joining up with Finish it Up Friday later on this afternoon.

This evening was so still and warm that we took some of my recently completed quilts ‘out on location’! We drove up to the local country park and I snapped away as the sun went down in the hazy sky. Summer Blossom is a king-size quilt and every block has pink, red, green or blue paisley and floral prints surrounding, or surrounded, by purest white. The backing is pure white lightweight fleece and its bound in a jolly red floral print. I’ve quilted horizontally and vertically, following the lines of the blocks, so from the back it has a rather Art Deco stylised feel.
My next market is on Sunday 3 August, in Winchester, and Summer Blossom will be for sale on my stall.
We thought we may have a thunderstorm this afternoon, but it passed us by with no more than a few spots (huge spots) of rain. It’s so hot and evenings are just the best time of day for a stroll whilst watching the sunset.
Are you enjoying high summer?
