Oh it has been so dreadfully hot today. I realised at about 8.00am when I went out for a walk with Miss Dog that it was going to be a roasting day. She sensibly found a big pool of water in the nature park and lounged in it until she was wet and filthy. It was over 35 degrees C earlier in the afternoon. I got stuck in and finished off my blue quilt. It took a long time to do the binding and also to put on the ric rac.
I'm very pleased with it as a sampler of all of the techniques I learned at the machine quilting class. It isn't really my colours (well the purple doesn't excite me as a home decorating colour), but it feels lovely, is interesting to look at and will be at home on the couch in the living room.
