The Bouncing Balls/Drunkard's Path quilt top is sewn. It ended up 56" x 70". The Roberta Horton yarn dyed plaids are a very soft fabric and this top is so lightweight. The other plaids are slightly heavier but still the weight of most quilting cottons.
This is the machine that I used to sew the top. The new lights are WONDERFUL! It was always dark to the right of the presser foot before and hard to tell if I was keeping my 1/4" seam accurate.
Before I left the basement I prepared the 3 layers of this wallhanging for hand basting. I worked on this one back in Oct. 2014. I have a Label for Drunkard's Path on my Label List, right sidebar if you are interested in the design process.
The red Weigela is blooming now. It is actually just past it's peak prettiness.
The native Heliotrope is blooming too. It is very sweet smelling, almost like lilacs on steroids.
The tomato plants are loving the rain and the hot weather. I have 5 tomatoes on the largest Early Girl plant. There are flowers on 3 other plants so I hope the bees will get busy.
The first Sundrops (which are in the same family as Evening Primrose) have bloomed. I have some of these in every flowerbed so I should be seeing a lot of yellow soon.
