Wow, where did July go, I've yet to stumble across someone who doesn't feel that this summer is racing by. August 1st, time to put up the red, white and blue quilts...
But I really didn't have a good idea of what to replace them with. I'm not ready for my fall quilts and even contemplated letting my little red couches go naked for the month.
Then I remembered this quilt, which I don't think I've ever had out.
It's Lifetime Quilt # 38, Newport Beach. It doesn't have a beach look to it, but the name's good for August. I think this is a good transition from summer to fall quilt.
To change it up even a little more, I decided to let it "sit" on the couch, instead of draping it across the back like I've done with my other quilts. The mini red couch is going "a la naturale", just for August.
This was a challenge quilt from my quilt club, with each different fabric donated by a member. One more quilt that I think looks pretty good on that red couch. You can read more about this quilt by selecting Quilt #38 from my Lifetime Quilt list on the right.
Did you ever play that picture game as a kid, "one of these things is not like the other"? Pictures of 5 animals and a house would be shown, and you had to understand that the house was not an animal and was not like the others. That game crosses my mind when I look at this.....
Notice something missing....yes, it's sad but true, I dropped and broke a saucer!! I'm still heartbroken but trying to get over it.....accidents happen, especially with me and glassware.
The coffee still tastes great though....I'm trying to move on, and keep telling myself it's no big deal, that's what happens when you use things instead of leaving them alone. And I did enjoy that cup and saucer set for a good 4 weeks, now I've just got to get used to enjoying the cup with no saucer.
On a happier dot note,

I went ahead and ordered the Robyn Pandolph red dot fabric from her Fancy Hill Farm family of fabrics. (happy birthday to me) I was worried about it maybe being a little on the orange side, but it's not, it's perfectly red. Not burgundy red, or ruby red, or blood red, it's just red....perfectly red, and I love it.
It needs a pattern and some friends....I'll keep working on that.
Thanks for stopping by!!
