Originally I wanted to be done with the Farmer's Wife Quilt for this occasion but I soon realized that was not going to happen. I then focused my time and energy on this one. I'm so glad I did.
Another idea I have for this quilt is to fill in the white spaces on the front with a record of our summer(s). I am not quite sure if I will embroider the dates and events on the quilt or maybe write them on in a permanent marker. I'm leaning toward the embroidery as I know that even permanent markers tend to fade out in the wash and turn an ugly brownish-gray.
Here are the specifics: All fabrics for the piecing are DS Quilts from JoAnn's (all bought at 40% off!). Backing is made up of these same fabrics. And the white and binding (black) are both Kona Cottons. Pieced and quilted by me. Quilting is very simple...just some straight lines to make large diamonds. I wanted it to remain somewhat fluffy.
I'm so looking forward to spending some time this weekend with glass of tea out on the patio with my laptop to visit some of the many quilts and blogs that will also be linking to Amy's Bloggers Quilt Festival! Thanks for visiting! Have a blessed day!
