Catching Up

This has been a really busy summer, but I don't seem to have accomplished much at all. This quilt was started at a "Quilt Camp" in June and I just finished stitching the binding down this afternoon. Kris and I each made one, with the same fabrics, but the borders are different. I used mostly her strips and scraps with just a few of my own for this one. I quilted hers in exchange! Monday we're heading to another quilt camp with a Christmas in July theme. We've picked our project and I have my scraps and strips ready to go this time.

Will's second birthday was last week and we celebrated on Sunday afternoon. I just love this picture of big brother AJ helping his little brother blow out the candle on the cookie cake. How precious is that?!

I haven't done any decluttering or spring cleaning projects, my gardens are weed infested once again, and I don't have much to show for anything I've done this summer and yet the summer is flying by. We've had weird weather -- haven't gotten any tomatoes from the garden yet at all and wondering if we ever will; the green beans are fabulous though, the beets are as well, and the cucumbers are probably going to take over the world. Bill has gotten tons of blueberries from his bushes too.

Brotherly love
The weather hasn't been too hot.
A quilt finish and I love the finished project.

What a fabulous scrap quilt, Joanne. I like the way you finished off the borders too.

I love how this simple pattern makes a great quilt.

I'd be tempted to get all my friends at the quilt camp to sign the white parts in the block. ;)

So are you doing it in July colors or Christmas colors? I could see green replacing for the blue and done in christmas prints.
