Summertime, Summertime, Sum Sum Summertime!

Work continues here on the Jill Finley quilt project.  I am using my walking foot to stitch in the ditch and will transition to the HQ 16 for free motion work. 

I’m also continuing my efforts to clean up my quilting space.  This box was full to the brim of assorted scraps.  Some have been folded and shelved while tiny bits of fabric and batting I do not think I could use are now stuffed into the dog bed shown on the right.  It should be full enough to turn in at the Quilt Club's August meeting if I can keep up the pace.

Both our house in town and the ranch reached highs to 101 today and temperatures are expected to continue in that vein through next week.  This happens to be the Lakefest weekend where thousands of high speed motor boat enthusiasts descend on our area.  The street we use to access our neighborhood is the primary “offloading” route for the boat trailers.  As usual, Bob and I have stocked up on provisions and will keep close to home for the duration.

An empty scrap bin is a good thing.....good for you. have the heat there. Smart girl to stay in and let the boaters have their way.

Good to see that you are making progress on your quilt. How do you like the HQ16. My stand up one is great. Wishing for more throat space but I really don't have room ugh. Keep going!

Being sequestered at home over the weekend shouldn't be a problem for a quilter who's stocked up on provisions, right? I'm sure you'll keep busy!
