It’s Hot…..

I’m not sure about you but it’s hot here!

Funny, it was cold a month ago and now it’s hot. Seems like I can never be


Even though the weather isn’t co-operating , these quilts are providing me

some relief from the heat.

Lesley made this beauty.

I love the colors of this Canadiana Quilt. Maple Leaves were stitched all

over it in a light teal color.

The Backing

Polyester thread, matching the teal color, was used for the front and the backing.

The colors are very rich looking on this quilt. Gorgeous fabrics were used too.

The bright backing fabric matches the colors of the quilt top.

Lesley also made this quilt. A light gold thread was used for the quilting.

Caroline’s Quilt

Carline made this strip quilt. It is so soft and pretty. Because there were so many floral

patterns in the fabrics used for the quilt, I thought it  was a good idea to quilt in flowers.

The name of the overall stitching pattern is “Summer Breeze.” It is quite pretty too.

Lesley’s Circle Quilt

It seems like there is a circular theme happening in this post.  I really love all the lines and the

subtle circle in the middle of the quilt.

Again,  the backing shows off the circles. I really like this quilting design. There are so

many out there, that it is hard to pick one sometimes.

Caroline’s Quilt

Caroline also made this quilt. I don’t see many orange quilts and this quilt

has a very unique color combination. I like it though.

Summer Breeze was also used on this quilt too.

The backing is a solid color so it shows off the stitching really well.

Caroline’s penguins. I love the penguins but they  stumped me for a while.

What do I quilt on penguins to compliment them? Of course, water came to mind and then,

Anita Shackleford’s “Modern Curves” popped in my mind. I love how the stitching

looks like there are waves on the quilt. Now the penguins are happy that they

can play in the water.

A green baby penguin. You are seeing lots of colorful animals today.

The backing almost looks like waves as well. I used a clear monofilament

thread on the top of the quilt and a dark thread on the backing.

Elizabeth Hartman’s Desert Quilt

This is the quilt that I am working on right now. Elizabeth Hartman is the designer. She

creates alot of animal quilting patterns.

6 adorable little bunnies.  I love their white cotton ball tail.

Have you ever seen a blue bunny before? Well, now you have.

What about a green raccoon?

Almost done, only 2 more animals to go. I like these quilts because

there are only 6-9 blocks that need to be made of each animal.

By the time I get bored with making this number of blocks, I

am moving onto the next block.

What are you working on right now? Or taking a break to enjoy the

hot weather?

Have a good week. See you next week.
