Good day, Friends! I know many of you in the Northern Hemisphere are anxious to be done with the lingering cold weather. I am too. Nonetheless, summertime WILL be here before you know it. :)
My SUMMERTIME quilt is featured in the latest Fons & Porter Easy Quilts (Summer 2011). (By the way, I am in love with that watermelon cover quilt, so cute!)I am so pleased with how the editorial staff at Fons & Porter had photographed the quilt with a piano. Many of you don’t know, but I started taking formal piano lessons when I was four, and went on taking lessons till I was 19.
Fons & Porter normally keeps published quilts for display at their headquarters for a while. So, I don’t have the quilt with me to take more pictures for you. These pictures coming up are the ones I quickly took before I shipped the quilt out to the editor months ago.
These fun fabrics are Summertime by Henry Glass! Need I tell you again… I guess I will. Threads are Aurifil‘s Mako 50 Cotton, and Batting is Hobbs Tuscany Silk. If you haven’t tried either of those projects, you have got to! Kits are available from Fons & Porter.
That was a fun quilt to make even though I had to work with teeny tiny circles. It was also one of the quilts I made in my “black” phase, thus the black in the block.
