We are just coming out of our first heat wave of the year. To think we needed to wear jackets and long pants only a week ago. I don't do well with the heat and we don't have air conditioning in our house. I did a little stitching because it requires mostly sitting with a tall glass of iced tea. The first 2 blocks I had done prior to the heat wave.
These are the two blocks completed in the last week during the heat wave. The pattern is from Waltzing With Bears, really sweet and quick blocks called Ruby's Garden. The quilt pattern doesn't show the blocks will, in fact in looks like a really boring and dull quilt.
This is block one and I don't like how it turned out. I'm definitely redoing this block. It might be partly the darker background I used but what I don't like the most is the shade of green and the blue stars in the border. All the other blocks are turning out wonderful. The ecru also doesn't show with my background fabric and so I'll change that colour as well.
So tell us what you do when the heat is too much. What do you do in a heat wave?
