August Mini...

I still have some catching up to do, but at least I'm up-to-date with my monthly mini quilts for our group at Sandy's Quilt Shop. It's all finished and I'll be ready for the September block right along with the rest of the gals.
The color of the blue fabric looks more vivid than it actually is because I took this picture first thing this morning in a diffused easterly light. The picture below of the designer's block uses the same fabric and shows the actual color. (It just so happens I used the same fabric!)

This is the block as it was designed by Brenda from our group. Quilts hanging from the clothesline, flower buttons scattered through the grass and a sweet bird button sitting on the line. There's even a laundry basket sitting under the line. (It's really cool up close!)

I've switched out the quilts, hung a few garments from my line, and there's a little cat scampering across a stone patio. All of us always personalize our quilts, so I'm looking forward to seeing how everyone else modifies the original design.

Another project caught up. Now to tidy up the studio before I tackle "next in line". Have a great weekend, girlfriends!

Hi Donna! Both blocks are just so, so sweet! Brenda's design and hanging quilts are darling, as are your bits of dainty laundry hanging from your line! How nice either of those blocks would be framed to hang in a laundry or sewing room! xoxo Paulette
