It’s a Good Start

All the half-square triangles are sewn and pressed for Samantha’s quilt.  Here are the first two sewn together into blocks.  Now to assemble all the rest of the pinwheels and choose the right fabric to go in the alternating squares.  Note:  Each pinwheel is made of a different “polka pot” fabric, and there will be lots of color in this quilt.  What to do… what to do…

Hot Fun in the Summertime…

Wow, is it ever a hot one today!  I’m not a fan of extreme heat, so I’ll probably spend most of my day in the house working on Samantha’s quilt or reading. 

Hot fun in the Summertime… Sly and the Family Stone keeps running through my mind.

One year ago today our family had lots of Hot fun in the Summertime when our son and daughter-in-law were married.  Here’s some fun pictures from that great (though hot at 98 degrees) day… Clicking on a picture should open it up full size.
