Hello. I am working on an oceany quilt that is for a friend, so I can say no more. I hope to have the quilt top finished tonight. Then tomorrow I will need to clear off my quilt table to prepare the backing. Doing the back is my least favorite part because of the need for squaring it up.
I did just finish a sweet baby quilt on August 30. It is constructed with nine exploding pineapple blocks, bold polka dot inner border, and scrappy outer border. I am not a fan of Mickey Mouse, but I am amazed at how wonderful it turned out. Chase is the Mickey Mouse fan. It is his quilt now.

Remember, I said I went to The Fair for an hour? It has been reported that I had ribbons on the doll quilt that I entered in The Western Idaho Fair. Well howdy! It was more than I expected, and frankly I was rather in shock, but I was smiling all the rest of the day. It got first place and best of division ribbons. Smile!

Summer is going by so quickly. I still have summer-time things I need to do, so I feel like I enjoyed the summer. I went wadding, ran through a sprinkler, had a picnic in the mountains, ate watermelon, went paddle-boating at the park, went to the Western Idaho Fair for one hour, drank a root beer float, made stepping stones, irrigated the property, and did some woodworking. Yesterday, we went to the botanical garden where I got some sun on my shoulders and had a relaxing wonderful time. I feel better now. I see I have done some summer things. Below are photos of my quilts that won ribbons at the Kuna Quilt Show. I am very pleased.
