A mid summer quilt.

This cute quilt was made by Jeanette. She made it for her grand-daughter.

She wanted it to look like a  Holly Hobby style quilt and I think that  she succeeded.

What a great view of the entire quilt top.  Can you imagine piecing all

those tiny pieces? It was definitely a labor of love.

Can you see how small the pieces are  for this block?  This is one of

the 2 different blocks that made up the entire quilt.

Here is the second block that makes up the quilt.  Again, alot of tiny

pieces sewn together. I don’t think that I have the patience for that much

piecing any more.

Here is a close up of the border section.  The blue floral fabric fits nicely with

the rest of the colors of this quilt.

The backing fabric matches the front too.  Jeanette wanted a pink polyester

thread for the top and back.  It does look nice for a tween bed.  Jeanette also

chose a “Daisy” panto for the quilt.

Last week, I managed to complete 2 fabric postcards.  I reproduced one that I

had made for Janet, over at whatcomesnext.blog.  There was a fabric postcard

challenge for Canada  Day.  The theme being “maples.”  Here is a second one

because the first one was misplaced, stolen or lifted on its way to BC.  I guess

I should take that as a compliment, as it was good enough to steal.

Summer has me thinking about flip flops so I made a postcard of flip flops.

One of these days, I will make a quilt depicting flip flops.  I love them but I

don’t even own a pair.

The tongs on the right side are a bit smaller than the left but I will say that they

are 2 different sizes of flip flops. It is good to share mistakes that we make, right?

And lastly, I went down to Toronto last week, to the Ripley’s Aquarium.  I was

very impressed with the design and layout of the building.  There is also so much

for young kids to do-crawl into holes, touch wierd fish and sea animals and

activities for them to participate in. No, I am not being paid to say all this.  Then

there is a conveyor belt you stand on and go through a glass tunnel with fish,

sharks, a saw fish, and other  marine life swimming all around you. It is totally

freaky when the sharks are swimming right towards you.  The hair on the back of

your neck stands up for a little while.  It is amazing!!!!  I took so many

pictures, it was crazy!  Can you tell that I enjoyed it?

This is one of the eels that lives in the huge 20-30 ft high tank. Isn’t the coloring

on him gorgeous?  I couldn’t help but take his photo.  Maybe I will make a

postcard of him and send to my dad.

Have a great week!
