WIP Wednesday

Not much to show, but a lot of behind-the-scenes work. This is not technically a secret. I just want to have the quilt burst onto the scene when it's finished instead of in bits and pieces. Does that ever happen to you too?
I'm going to a friend's cabin to sew away the weekend. No cell phone reception, no computer access. Pure bliss. I have been wanting to make a chevron quilt forever based on this sweater. And then someone asked me to test a chevron quilt pattern. Perfect timing. So this stack of fabric is going up to the mountains. But not the sweater. It's supposed to hot this weekend!
Thanks, Lee, for WIP Wednesday.

Here, in MN, Simon and I wore jeans and jackets to the outside baseball game. Lovely and cool. Perfect for doing non-swimming/beach types of activities. Enjoy your hot! And have fun sewing away the days.
