End of Summer? Nope. Not here in Central Jersey... we had our hottest day of this Summer just yesterday, Sept 2nd! It was sooo hot (in the upper 90's) with super swampy humidity levels. A little less humid today... but still too hot to open the windows (and still be comfortable)...
And, I'm still stitching on my Temecula Summer Quilt! I'm hoping that Autumn temps will arrive as soon as I put the last border on? One can hope, anyways! :-) In the meantime, here is the (next to last) border... which is Week 10.
This was another fun one to piece! It started with the dark brown strips (about 6" x 2")... then I had to stitch a tan triangle to one long side of the brown strip, then the other side of the dark brown strip (and press open to make the block). After awhile, the tan triangles started to look like toast... and the dark brown strips started to look like bacon! So, I was calling these my "bacon sammich blocks"... lol! Next was taking those blocks and piecing them together to make the zig zag pattern... once I put a couple of the borders together my DH says... "Why are you sewing a Charlie Brown shirt"? lol! ;-) So, I'm going to refer to this border as the "Charlie Brown Bacon Sammich Border"... ;-)
I have the fabrics for the final (week 11) border starched and pressed... the piecing instructions are super simple... so, the grand finale of this Summer series should be within the next couple of days!
Until next time... stay healthy & keep on smiling! :-)
