Hello Friends, the last couple of days have been busy. I worked hard to push through a few things. Autumn Sky is now on its way to the editor. I am experimenting with quilting with straight lines. Honestly, I find quilting straight lines MORE difficult than free-motion quilting. I am exploring a few visual effects in straight line quilting. I still have much to learn- don’t you just love all the learning opportunities in quilting?
Anyway, here is a sneak peek of Autumn Sky:
The fabrics might look familiar to you… yeap, you are right, the fabrics you see are some of the fabrics you see in my Bird Watching quilt. You still have time to enter the magazine giveaway in my Bird Watching post here.
Meanwhile, our summer is shaping up quite nicely. Yes, we are feeling the heat, including heat from the oven!!! You see, Miss Baby and I are working in a bit of baking in our summer routine. Miss Baby is crazy about those cranberry pecan rolls! [Doreen’s bread recipes are the absolute best!!! Click here for Doreen’s recipes.] So, I am not the greatest cook in the world — I had to write Doreen and asked just how long we should wait for the bread rolls to rise before sticking them in the oven to be baked. Doreen is most gracious in sharing her bread making wisdom – thanks, Doreen!
How is your summer shaping up? Are you doing any traveling this summer? If so, where…?
Thanks for stopping by. I hope to post about another editorial feature tomorrow — I realized I needed to take a few more pictures while working on the post. Till tomorrow. Hugs to you all.
