Progress, pictures tomorrow

I got a lot done yesterday but nothing ready to take pictures of so instead here is a picture of some of my new Kaffe Fassett fabrics. 
I only have a few inches of binding left to hand stitch on "Chocolate and Caramel", I have 16 log cabin blocks 2/3 done.  I got the rest of the binding sewn on the quilt I quilted last week.  This hot weather gives me a lot of 'inside time'.  Tomorrow is supposed to be the hottest day.

I saw this butterfly last week but by the time I got the camera it was gone.  Yesterday it posed for me.







I didn't get a full wing spread picture.









The goldenrod is just getting ready to bloom by the Rose of Sharon.

The pencils fabric is one of my newest favorites of Kaffes! The butterfly is beautiful on the cone flowers. Sadly, my cone flowers have been eaten by the deer this year. I think that they have really been foraging for food as it has been unexpectedly dry here this year. My rose of sharon is blooming now too. The same color as yours and just lovely.

Fabrics are really upbeat with the colors and design. Can't wait to see what you do with them. Chris

Wanda, where do you shop the most for you Kaffe fabrics? Online? I'm restricted out here in the boonies so I'm always looking online for inspiration. Your blog is amazing and it starts my day. It's mind boggling how much you get accomplished. I have way too many outside distractions to get any measurable work done except on my day off. I look forward to retirement so I can indulge more.Hilary

I love that pencil fabric!

Wanda - send the cooler weather our way - we could use it. Next 7 day forecast is 98 and up (with high humidity, of course).

Hugs - Marie

That butterfly is a Swallowtail... Her/his cousin is the one that is visiting my gardens.

Just love your new Kaffe Fassett prints.

I did finish the hand stitching the binding on a King quilt. WHEW ~ ~ ~ and I only do that size once in a blue moon. I love the way you showed us how you apply your bindings. I used the method and it worked like a charm.

As always your photo's brighten my day.
