A Slice Of Summer...


Summer's here and the stitchin' is easy. I'm busy preparing for Bless This House appliqué  block-of-the-month class on Wednesday evening, these watermelon slices are refreshing  to look at, much more appealing than the hot, hot, hot temperatures outside! I couldn't be happier that I chose not to hand applique this time around, it's SEW much easier to keep up the pace with my machine stitched option!
After months of trying out new stitching techniques Sundance and I decided to
tackle a 
real quilt and abandon the muslin practice sandwich for a while...
wish us luck!
Life is Good!

That watermelon block is very fun and fresh looking!
I wish you and Sundance well. I am about to tackle my first real quilt on Gidget. I'm with you!

The watermelon's beautiful scallops are scrumptious! And here is my fingers-crossed-I-know-you-can-do-it for your "real" quilt :)
