Oh my gosh!!!  It's HOT outside.  I guess that means it's a really good time to quilt!  I'll have to take a dip later tonight.  Hopefully, it cools off enough.

So, I've been working on a few projects these past two weeks.  One that I thought I should share was a quilt that I received from Shirley, a Grandmother making a quilt for her granddaughter.  The back and front were both equally interesting.  On the front, she had string diamond shapes in black and white.  Her granddaughter asked for the sash color in between.  On the back, I was originally concerned about some applique that Shirley had stitched on, but my machine seemed to handle it with ease.  She embroidered some stars that represented the life of her granddaughter.  I thought this was a really neat idea and felt like I should share it.  It was definitely a fun one to top stitch.

I'm still working on my Great Granny Square blocks and have about 4 left.  If I finish today, I'll post all of my blocks later.  These are definitely fun blocks to do and not that difficult.  When I'm finished, I'll have 16 blocks all at 12 and 1/2 inches.  It'll be a pretty big quilt.  I may have to change out the one on my bed with these.  I really like them. :)  Hometown fabric is really cool right alongside moda snow.
