Summer is Here!

This is the first opportunity to post a few projects I've been working on lately. We've been very busy the last few days with a family emergency on my side and out of town family visiting on my husbands side and that doesn't include dealing with painters. They should be finished soon but now we have to repair the damaged (NEW) roof over the porch, the painters are paying for that. I'm so tired today......what day is it ????......I thought yesterday was Sat.....I'm so confused with so much going on and I don't see it slowing down any time soon.

This summer table topper is quilted with daisy's, bound and washed......I love the cheerfulness of this quilt. We've also had the first sunny days of summer this weekend, I hope the sun will last for a while. It's a nice change from sweaters.

These cat blocks have been so much fun, I think this one will be quilted and bound without any more borders.
I had so much fun making more cats for the fall, the inner pieced border was some scraps leftover from another quilt.

I hope you are enjoying a more relaxing time. Happy Quilting!

Sweater? please don't say that word. Hot, hot, hot! I love your cats, both versions. I have a cat quilt coming to the top of my To Do List soon. Enjoy your warm weather.

Hope the chaos settles down for you and you can enjoy some sunshine. Your little quilts are the cat's meow!

Love your quilts. The first one took my breath away. The second made me smile. And the third made me go oooooh. Autumn is my favorite time of year so the pumpkin made the quilt for me. Hugs.

I'm terribly sorry to hear about the family emergencies and challenges in your daily life.

I'm glad you've found a few minutes to do a little sewing. The cat quilts are adorable.

really like the way you combined the cat blocks and sashing, an old traditional block made to look quite new...

OH and I am now the proud human to a Tuxedo cat very similar to your BOO, mine insisted on being called Walter...

Fabulous cat quilts! I love how they love the same but so different...are you making a series of them?

Hopefully you'll have time soon to take a breath, relax, and ease into the rest of summer.
Love those cats and all your projects.
