This glorious photo was taken by Bev Chapman, who has such an eye! She's a trooper of a hiker, a great story teller, and an extraordinary photographer. We were on the summit of Snowshoe Mountain on a gorgeous August day.
So, back in the Heartland now and back to the design wall and the sewing machine, with an August 1 manuscript deadline behind me and UFO's to transform into FO's.
Sarah's first challenge is DONE:
As promised with acceptance of the fat quarter (see the border) that started this challenge, it will go in the mini-quilt auction, proceeds to non-profits, at our guild show next spring.
At the guild's show-and-tell, it was great fun to see the variety of ways folks used the challenge fabric. Sarah rose to the occasion and announced a second challenge. This time, 3 solids--deep blue, brown, and violet. She had "a little bit Amish" in mind. Here's the top I've made, which I'm calling, Not at All Amish:
Here's a detail in which you can see the 3 solids:
The violet is a beautiful thistle color, isn't it?
