Just a little birthday present!

Here's my latest creation, a quilt made for my Aunt's birthday, today!  I experimented with adding crosses into my quilt top.  I think it turned out nice with the peach and blue tones.  It's made with a charm pack from Joann's, thicker batting to make it plusher, and binded with a stripped tan and white fabric.

Good Bye July!

With the end of July, the garden is finally producing.  Eggplant, green and red bell peppers, jalapeno peppers, basil and parsley!   While our garden was busy, I took the chance to see one of our local gardens, Boerner Botanical Gardens.  I was there for a baby shower later that day and was able to see a few of the gardens before the party.

And here was the gift I brought to the baby shower.  A beautiful blue, green, and white quilt, which I saw in the Spring issue of Stitch.  Unfortunately, there was no pattern, just a picture, so this is my attempt at it, an I think it was a success!
