It was cloudy and cool today so I decided to stay inside, not do gardening, and get caught up on the Splendid Sampler blocks. It was too cool to sit on the porch swing and sew on the Grandmother’s Flower Garden.
It was a very productive day. I not only finished the three remaining Splendid Sampler blocks, but I finished the latest Moda Block head block. I had cut the pieces out yesterday. Then I got really busy and finished zigzagging the edges of the flowers on Melinda’s Quilt. I started that quilt in a class on fusible applique with Sue Pelland at the Vermont Quilt Festival. There was just a little bit more to do to finish it. Now, I can baste the backing and batting on the quilt top and quilt it. It will be nice to have something finished.

It is great to be caught up on all the long term quilts, – Splendid Sampler and Moda Blockhead 2, The temperature quilt is up to date. Dear Jane is still sitting in her box waiting for me to make another block.
We are supposed to have another thunder storm tomorrow, so I did go out and pick the raspberries. There were more that I got a few days ago and it looks as if there are lots more to come. I’ll freeze some. They will be so good next winter.
Miss Molly enjoyed her day off from sitting on the swing and checking the neighborhood.
Have a great day and happy quilting.
