coming up for air....

It's summer here as we've hit the first 80 degrees string of 7 or so days, so no going back to spring or even winter. So I thought I'd lighten up the blog too for a while. I love the prim look but I also like to change things up every now and then too.

So....been waiting for some finishes??? Enough suspense...I finished the taupe Pinwheels quilt and the "quilt holder" got busy, but the other will have to wait till tomorrow or the next day.

Shades of Taupe Sampler
61 x 82

I never seem to remember the hanging sleeves until right about now! Oh well, I need to get a label on it and that will be good for now. Hope you like seeing it. Back tomorrow with more!

** I should have given the details for the quilt in the first place huh?? This was a block of the month offered by Pinwheels.com during 2006(??) I think. So far it's still not available as a pattern for the moment, I'm afraid. But the last time I gave out the info someone called the store and they said the designer was thinking of making the pattern available if there is enough interest. So by all means email and call if you want the pattern!**

Wow, I love that one! I could find a place in my house for it if you get tired of it. LOL

Your taupe quilt is wonderful, Judy! How nice to have a finish. We are cold and rainy here in California until Tuesday, I think, so this front could be heading east. You may be in for cooler weather after all!

Love the tumblers -- I've started cutting a large version myself -- novelties and brights to donate but I can't wait to sew it all together...the GO Cutter makes it a breeze to cut out.

You should be showing that quilt off for sure! So many different techniques and all done well. I like quilts in neutral colors. Was it a kit or did you pick your own fabrics?
