Isn't this a great quilt.    My friend Marie made it.   When she first finished the top the center made a mountain.     Ok ok  so it popped up a bit,   then she redid the center and completed the quilt.  It won ribbons at the local quilt show and at the state fair quilt show.     So congratulations to a proud friend.
I've considered doing this quilt, but kind of put it on delay as it would take real concentration to keep all the pieces in place.   
      a busy week of Dr appointments for DH and garden produce needed attention.    The only quilting I accomplished this week was to work on a small wall quilt.     Wish me luck on this.    
     Now the Olympics are on and I do enjoy watching the gymnastics and the swimming.    Occasionally some of the other things, but those are my favorites.

Pleasant today.   Not so hot and not so humid.    good day for tending some things in the garden that did not get accomplished when it was so hot.

Relief from the heat.    Cooler day with lower humidity.   Makes me want to quilt.   grin.
Sewing on an UFO.    Have a top from a class that needs to have stitching on the pieces. 
So spent time today sewing.   
 This one is from a kit that I won at the convention last year.     a fun piece to do.    Leaves are applique.    Stitched around with buttonhole stitch.
Kit baby quilt.    I bought this kit at a garage sale.    The blocks were mostly embroidered, but I had to finish most of the french knots and two of the blocks.     Someone was selling their excess fabric and kits that were started and not completed.    Still have a couple to go.    Ended up being a fun project.  I probably would not have purchased the kit but when most of the stitching was already finished could not resist.
