New old summer quilt

I pulled out another old quilt top this week and quilted it with lazy meandering lines inspired by the water and plants that surround us here in the Northwest ... easy, breezy summer stitching.

Now comes the part that I hate: squaring it up. It's bigger than my tables and my rulers, which is why I procrastinate.

Here are some inspiring gentle curves in photos that I snapped this week on a beach walk and in our garden:

Here is what fueled me yesterday: a big chicken salad sandwich at Kandi's house before the Feet and Forks embarked on our beach walk. It was delicious! (We had planned to go kayaking but got too lazy from sitting in the sun.)

Have a colorful day
