Cool Blues For Sticky Hot Days

Thursday, January 08, 2009

I'm beginning to nibble away at my stash of 1930's fabrics to put this together. It wasn't until I counted up that I realised just how out of hand the stash had become. Fortunatley these were just the fabrics to cut into on a hot summer's day.

My stash of 1930's prints began innocently enough with these two. They appealed to my joint weaknesses for crockery and fabric. I hadn't bought myself to do a count up until yesterday. It appears that there are now about 50 different prints, of various sizes, just begging to be used up.

The colours and prints in this particular quilt remind me of summer shorty pajamas, cool and breezy. If only there were a little more of that today. It has been sweltering hot here, and not cooling down until well into the evening.

    Hi! Your quilt looks really great! If you are too hot, so please travel to us. We have -10 outside and yesterday even -17!! LOL!

  3. the quilt does have a light summery feel to it. I'd like some more heat. I miss it and we haven't had much yet.

  4. I really love this quilt! The colours are lovely.
