We had an amazing sunset last Sunday night when I got home from Sisters. However, the sun sets behind Tims' house so we rarely enjoy them. On this particular night, the sunset was reflecting off the clouds and mountains, the water was painted with amazing colors, and we sat on the bench, mesmerized by Mother Nature at her finest. I hope you have enjoyed some of what the outdoors has to offer in your area this summer.
Birch Bay, WA with Mt Baker in the distance.
It was the perfect night for Tim to give me this. *VBG* It was his mothers and we had it reset for me.
We have set a date, Sept 21, 2043 That will be when my 30 year mortgage runs out on him. :-)
Kim Diehl has a wonderful line of fabrics out called Vintage Farmhouse. With this collection comes 6 fabulous little quilt patterns, released each month, called What Nots.
My LQS, Fabric Etc is kitting up each of these little quilts so if you want to join in the fun, just give them a call and Carol will be happy to add you to the list. If you are living in the Bellingham, WA area, then you can partake in a free demo the first Sat of the month starting in September, all part of the What Nots. Each month I will showcase a method that I used to piece that particular quilt. Kim also is including recipes, tips and tricks.
Here is the first one, called Meandering, and it contains every print in the collection. I'm still hand quilting it, but it is very cute. Disregard the orange basting threads while I do the quilting. Using YLI 003 brown to quilt this one.
There will be a variety of tops, but all will be small. I think the biggest one is 24 x24 so very doable in a month. Join in the fun, I'll be posting along the way.
