Out on the clothes line
It was such a lovely day here. Just like a perfect warm, but not too hot or muggy, summer day. I took advantage of it to wash up the winter quilts, and hang them out on the line to dry. They always smell so good afterwards. These are all quilts that I did before I started blogging, but after I started long arm quilting, so I thought I'd take pictures of them and show them.
Flies in the Barn. This was one of the first 5 or 6 quilts I did on the long arm, so I'm not going to show any of the quilting. I learned a LOT doing this one. I did a different block inset design in each of the squares, just to try them out, and learn how they worked.
My Blue Heaven. I think it was the first time I did an all over pattern in the center of a quilt, and then something different in the borders. This was also one I did while I was learning, before I took in any customer quilts. I was, and still am, happy with the way it turned out. There are baptist fans in the center, and a fun kind of swirly design in the flying geese and the borders around the geese. I actually put on these borders just so I could do that quilting design.
So, between doing all the laundry, and hanging it out, and working on a quilt, that's how I spent my day. And in between, I enjoyed the warm breezes and tried very hard to ignore all the weeds in the gardens. LOL!! All in all, a good day.
