As summers go out here we've had a very mild summer. Very little rain sense June and not a lot of the hot temps. It's mostly been in the 80's even in August which kind of surprised me. I like the warmer weather!
So what does one do when it starts raining? I finished the mariner quilt the other night, (see earlier post). I've had my next project loaded on the LA sense taking the other off but I haven't figured out all the quilting designs to fill up the space. Deciding that it will never get finished if I don't start it, I worked on a part of the border yesterday. I wanted to double up on the batting but after doing the border I realized that wasn't working. The feathers that I worked on in the border were folding over the stem line. Probably shouldn't have tried to use high loft batting with cotton batting. Opps it was all that I had on hand.
So far I've worked the feathers in the border and feathers in the side setting triangles. Not to shabby for my third quilt top. I had to use my cell phone for these pictures. My digital camera with its auto flash didn't show the stitching.
