Because I didn't write a "really random" post last Thursday, I couldn't include my "monthly marker" for June. Even though a picture of this bouquet is included in the post about the White House, they are so gorgeous I don't mind seeing them again.
After writing all those long posts about Washington, DC, this will be short. Although if you read any of the many posts about the trip, you deserve to see all those pins on my Range backpack.
Each of my blocks will contain selvages, and when I first made this block back in January 2017, I chose the quilt name of "Best Sellers."
While traveling, I did some more work on my "Grand Prismatic" quilt (pattern by Kitty Wilkin @nightquilter, and pattern available through @karenatdiyaddict).
I took this photograph in my brother's courtyard. The colors are completely out of whack. Crossweaves and shot cottons are hard to photograph correctly.
This is much more accurate.
I took this one from an angle while it was on my coffee table the other night. You can see how the light changes those dark crossweaves.
My friend, Kelly, sent this picture to me from the Michael Miller booth at quilt market in Kansas City. The quilt on the left really resembles my My Swedish Ex pattern. I'd love to know who made it. And I wish I could see the whole quilt because the colors look really pretty.
Finally, @broadclothstudio has a fun questionnaire to find out which quilt block you are.
I have never heard of the quilt block Handy Andy, but I quite like it. I'm trying to decide whether it is an accurate description...
And with that, I think I'm done with blog writing for a couple of days...
