Firefly nights - #2 of Gwennie Inspired medallion
'Childhood Memories' was the theme for this past month's
Gwennie Inspired Medialion challenge...
I was so excited thinking back on my childhood,
as there were so many good memories
and great inspirational ideas that came to mind
for this challenge.
I grew up an Ohio farm girl, the oldest of four children;
there were chores to do, cooking, gardening,
cleaning, and more chores, and I absolutely loved them all.
Many times at the end of the Summer day, we had
a bonfire and could stay out a little later and
hunt fireflies. There were at least a gazillion!
It was almost magical, as they lit the trees and fields
with their twinkly lights.
So, Firefly Nights was my choice for the second round:
Can you tell I used to love my Summer nights and fireflies?
Truth be told, I still love my firefly nights!
At this point, my quilt top measures 25 inches by 30 inches.
I've used more scraps from the scrap basket.
Also, I still need to give it a good pressing. lol
I can hardly wait to get going on the next 'round'/challenge!
Cathy of Big Lake Quilter blog
has chosen the theme of 'Log Cabin' quilt blocks.
So more fun to come!
