I got another quilt home from the quilter. This project was a Schnibbles Sew Along from last April! The pattern was Summer Day, but I changed mine up a little and named it Summer Fun. And since my summer isn't over until I say it's over, I immediately hung this quilt up and intend to keep it up until summer is over.
This was quilted by Dawn at The Sewing Basket in Charleston, Illinois. Here's a nice view of the back, she went with a custom design.
I love the quilting, especially the quilting around these dots, like little rays of sunshine, perfect for a quilt named Summer Fun.
I've made several quilts to hang in that spot in the guest room, but this is the first one I've gotten back from the quilter, "T" Stands for Thelma has been up quite awhile, and I thought it would be best to give that quilt a break from the sun.
Then I threw it over the banister while I decided what to do with it (I don't like to fold quilts that I hang) and decided I liked it there, so "T" Stands for Thelma is still out, just in a different location.
I'm going to town on my Canasta baskets. I thought it would be fun to make a variety of basket blocks, so far I've drawn up 23 different patterns.
Like this for example.
I think I'll make the parade, how about you?
