Where did July go? I feel like it should be July 5th still. I am staying busy, busy. I haven’t been busy watering the grass, though. All of you that have been reading my blog know that I love me some hot, summer weather, but this drought business has got to stop!! My trees are dropping leaves likes it’s October! I won’t even mention my garden, or lack of. The deer have been ruthless!! Nothing like some sweet, succulent green beans to quench their thirst!!
I am staying super cool quilting. My studio is in the lower level. Sometimes I even have to go outside to warm up!! Speaking of quilting, I was out of town for a bit, but couldn’t wait to get home to share a recent quilt, Pennies From Heaven. It is a design from Gretchen Gibbons. Lisa Bongean/Primitive Gatherings did a gorgeous primitive version with their fabrics and wool!!! You may have already read about it on Lisa’s blog here. Thanks LB.
I know I may have said this before about quilts that I have quilted but…I LOVE this quilt!!! I even had Scott walk around the house and model it in different spots!! I could not decide where it looked best because it looked good everywhere!!! Before I forget because I know some of you will want to know where you can find this beauty, Primitive Gatherings has a limited number of full kits available here!!!
Lots of eye candy ahead…
I added a little surprise quilted star.
Penny flowers in the corners.
I love every part of this quilt, but the center is my favorite!!
Feathers are always a great addition!! 🙂
Love the back!!
Specifics…Dream Blend batting, So Fine threads top and bobbin…4 of them. All quilting is freehand. I used my straight ruler and little curved cross hatch ruler. I DID stitch on the wool where needed. It really helps the wool applique pop.
I was hoping Lisa might forget that she sent me this one…didn’t happen. 🙂
