This month has gone by in a blur, and August will no doubt be the same, with a hopeful harvest of tomatoes, garlic and at least some squash, and more blueberries. This has been a tough summer for gardeners in these parts with incessant rain for much of the month, flooding, hail damage, etc.
My quilting mojo has been at a low ebb of late, but I did manage one small finish and two more baby/young child quilt tops pieced.
In the finished department, a baby boy quilt for our quilt ministry, already on its way to its destination, a newborn who is battling several physical issues in the NICU of a nearby city hospital.
The soft pinks were difficult for me to photograph accurately especially with the light from the windows. I had 8 or 9 pinks in my stash, mostly some old-fashioned prints, that I'd thought would work for this one, though they seem to wash out more than I'd like compared with the brights in the panels. I'm planning on using more of the purple/pink shot cotton for the binding to I hope contain the paleness and keep the whole from fading into nothingness. Hopefully the dimension added by the quilting will also help.
