I have been playing with my red and white fabrics as I plan for a quilt retreat later this summer. This weekend I completed two test blocks of a double nine-patch pattern. I am still trying to figure out how to work pressing the seams so the blocks will nest. These don’t.
We woke up Tuesday morning to the wonderful sound of rain, a rare occurrence this time of year and our temperature maxed at 98 degrees. It was the first day below 100 after a 15-day string. So, today I am very grateful for the much-needed moisture and slightly cooler temps.
