Maybe it’s the heat that has made my brain dull. But I didn’t need much of it anyway today to tack my Summer Quilt.
Shaded by two giant maples, my studio was cooler than the house. I listened to short stories on Selected Shorts as I pulled the sage green yarn through the quilt and tied the knots.
I was tired today. A little queasy so I took the day slow, napping twice.
In a way, it was the perfect day to finish my Summer Quilt, although not quite summer, it sure feels like it today.
I had a few people ask about buying this quilt. I take the requests for my quilts in the order they come in. If it doesn’t work for the first person, I offer it to the second and so on.
I hope I’ve given the four embroidered panels a fresh context among the small patchwork squares that allude to gardens and windows into another more abstract summer world.
