OK, I've been neglecting my quilt followers -- maybe because I haven't been quilting much?
Here is what I'm working on now, above. It's going to be a
for the white wicker love seat on the front porch, and all I have left to do is the binding.
And now we'll jump across the lane to my neighbor's patio table, below, where you can feast your eyes upon
Rosemary's fabulous strawberry pieand flowers. She's the neighbor I wrote about in my "Black Thumb Gardener" blog, the one who is going to turn me into a Green Thumb.
Speaking of Green Thumb,
take a look at Dave's peas!
We've been eating them right off the vine
and then crisping up bowls full in the fridge for snacking later.
Not only does Dave have a green thumb, but he can also make a sweet pie. Every summer he makes a batch of nectarine pies, and here is one from last weekend, along with corn and chilies fresh off the grill. The man deserves a beer -- Sierra Nevada Summerfest, thank you.
Note the tablecloth: It's a quilt I made last summer specifically to be a tablecloth. I left out the batting and backed it with a wide piece of white flannel. The flannel helps keep it from slipping off the table, plus it's not as bulky as a regular quilt. I think the colors in the fabrics are delicious!
Have a deliciously colorful weekend!
