This is such an elegant little quilt! Merilyn made it as a sample for our local Wichita quilt shop, Material Girls. She said the fabric also comes in red and cream but I think the taupe and cream is beautiful.
Merilyn didn't want heavy background quilting so the applique blocks are really just done with SID quilting.
This is from a few days ago:
Fortunately it has cooled down - to only 100 degrees and we have had a good rain. This morning it was 72 degrees out, the coolest it had been in weeks. It felt heavenly! But at the Farmer's Market this morning I heard a little girl complaining about being cold to her mother, so I guess we all have our own personal thermostat.
This was Peter's breakfast recently: I think his tastebuds are dying. (That's a sliced cold wienie on his popcorn)
