'Grammy, it's stinkin' hot!'
And I respond, 'that's because it's the dog days of Summer'.
(That's what my Great GrandmaB would say,
so I guess that's where I picked that up,
but wonder where that originated...)
But it has been stinkin' hot...
Good weather to stay in and stitch a little, for sure.
As of last night, before the stroke of midnight,
I finished my #SummerSpread #SewAlong quilt top!!!!!!
8/8/18, Summer Spread on the bed!!
|These last blocks were a little more splinted logs than whole logs|
and I need to decide if I add another row or two.
I did this sew along with Barb when I saw her #SummerSpread idea on Instagram... (here's her link to her blog - Fun with Barb)
I used little pieces from trimmed logs to piece the last blocks together, and love that look.
|Lovely shirtings strips readied|
A block center and logs stack, at the ready... I could stitch a block in a few spare moments, and it sure seemed to go together quickly!
Now to decide how to finish it!
Hope your Dog Days of Summer are going well.
