Catching Up

Hello, everybody. Hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July. It was certainly hot enough here. I tried to stay in the a/c as much as possible. Not a lot of quilty stuff going on around here so I haven't posted lately, but I finally decided I better at least say something. I am doing some quilting stuff, but nothing that is showable yet. Just bits and pieces of things. And the Piece and Plenty takes lots of time, but I am working on that. Will post a picture of one block pretty soon. I am almost finished with it.

My version of what I took a class in on Saturday. It is called Mirrored Silhouettes. Of course I didn't finish it, I never do, lol.

This is the sample of the wall hanging I was looking at to do mine.

It's a few days late, but what is on your bed for July? This is my patriotic quilt that I made about 3 years ago (I think). It has hand embroidery, hand piecing, paper piecing, and plain old piecing. The quilting was done by a lady from Missouri named Penny Roberts and she did an absolutely wonderful job on it.

This is Roger and Laurie and Aud. Laurie is Keith's mother and is married to Roger. He is from Nepal and is one of the nicest and sweetest people I have ever known. Some of our young men could take lessons from him, that's for sure. Keith is very fortunate to have him in his life.

Here's Keith again, hasn't changed much in a month, lol, but he and family stopped by. It was good to see him, and he didn't have his Rock Band with him , lol.

Aud in the front yard pulling weeds (I only see one though, lol)

Apricot Lilies in the back yard

Asian Lilies, these things are about 4 feet tall.

Hey, you've got a new header! Cool!

I like the mirrored silhouettes. I have a leaf pattern that's reversed colors, but it's simpler than that. I saw a jack-o-lantern one in one of the quilting mags, too, but it was simple also.

That looks a bit too complex for me--but beautiful!

Love the bedquilt, too. Glad you had a good weekend!

I love your flowers! I grow some of the same lilies in my yard too!
I LOVE that patriotic quilt on your bed. Can the pattern be purchased somewhere?
How are those eyes doing?

Glad Keith left the band at home.
Your quilt on the bed is wonderful. Very patriotic.
And the quilting is awesome.

Your patriotic quilt is so festive. I love it. You obviously do finish quite a few projects. And your garden is lovely.

Love the mirrored silhouette you are working on! And your 4th of July bed quilt it wonderful. It would be so nice to have enough finished, bed sized quilts to change throughout the year.
