It is a gorgeous Sunday afternoon here in NC. Perfect temperature, Carolina Blues skys. I gave our new puppy, Riley, his first bath today, ( or my first time giving him a bath) Overall he seemed like he kinda liked it. He is such a joy and a cutie!
Earlier today I was working on my latest project, My boomerang 6 quilt. In an earlier post, I shared some of the blocks I received in this block swap from The Quilting Board. I have enjoyed this swap so much, I have signed up for the Boom 7! I'm gonna do a large group this time.
I ordered some 1/4 yd pieces of fabric from Connecting Threads to try out for sashing and a repeat block. It is really hard to see the true color of fabric on the internet. The sashing I have decided on I purchased at my LQS and it looks kinda like old barn wood that is faded and stressed. My blocks all have a western theme so I think that fits perfect. Here is a picture of my blocks just layed out.
I am at a stand still until I order more fabric!
Here is the finished quilt I did for my Sister in Law. I am really please how it turned out.
