The sun finally peeked out here, so I thought I would show you the latest finish. This double hourglass will also be going to Sandy Survivors. I'm working on the third and then I'll get them all in the mail.
If you look above the quilt you can just make out the black figs. The Petite Negra fig tree decided to have a second crop. (It is called "petite" because it is supposed to be a dwarf tree. Note to self: nothing growing along the border of the chicken yard will be dwarf.) I guess it felt sorry for me since the first crop was a dud. We had no rain and then too much rain and all the figs the first time around were totally inedible.
Here you can see the backing and binding. It is a colorful quilt and hopefully someone will be blessed by it.
Now for a couple more of the quilts we saw at Houston Quilt Festival.
I liked the order and yet the variety in this churn dash. I want to make one. I've been so inspired seeing the ones Wonky Girl has made over the time I've been visiting her blog. I noticed she comes back to this block as it is a favorite of hers. Curiously enough, I've never made this particular block. I need to expand my horizons!
And this one is just spectacular on so many levels. Not even going to pretend that I'll try anything like this anytime soon! It is a beauty, though, isn't it?
Outside I can hear birds singing their little hearts out. I love that. It's a pretty day after several gloomy, gray ones. I'm glad to see the sun again!
Hope you're having a wonderful day.
Hugs and kisses,
