Happy Summer Solstice!
I picked a bouquet from our yard today, including lupine, wild geraniums, carnations, lady's mantle, and dandelions, to show what's blooming on this first day of summer. The colors match this quilt that I titled "Spring." When I made it in the Midwest those were the spring colors. Here, it could be titled "Summer."

This next quilt is the one I blogged about here under "Color Therapy": http://sherriequilt.blogspot.com/2012/06/color-therapy.html I haven't titled it yet, but it reminds me of grasses in the wind or eelgrass swirling in the water. Last night I shifted the rectangles around a little, added some scraps of sheer painted silk organza and gold mesh and quilted it with gold thread.

OK, so the pie cherries aren't from today, but they're so bright that I had to include them. Julia was making a cherry pie for Father's Day.
Have a colorful solstice!
