Temecula Summer Quilt - Week 8

Those little squares are quite habit forming... so much so, that I had to get back to the sewing bench last night and sew together all of those little 4-patches... and then stitch those borders to the still growing Temecula Summer Block of the Week Quilt...

This was one of my favorite borders on this quilt! Temecula Quilt Company shipped the cream and a couple of small pieces of fabric... but, the fun was going back into the scraps that were saved from all of the previous borders! :-)

My first time using up such small pieces of fabric, and let me tell you... I think I have another obsession! lol! Here are the 4 border pieces all lined up on the ironing board (waiting to be pinned to the quilt)...

... and here is a little close up of the little squares... kinda looks like some sort of tile game, no? ;-)

Anyways... all this was making me wonder if I should have some fun and get going on some MORE scrappy 4-patches (made of 1-1/2" squares)... and see just how BIG of a quilt I can make from my scrap bin? *grin* That will have to wait until Winter though... as I must finish up the half dozen projects I have in progress before I find more trouble... lol!

Until next time... stay healthy & keep on smiling!



  1. Sharon! That is awesome! I am so impressed by the improvement in your piecing. Small pieces are fun, hey? Keep up the good work, woman!
