Happy 4th of July

It is definitely summer in Omaha, we have had 100+ weather the last couple days.  I looked at the long range forecast on my phone ap this morning and it said for the next 7 days:  97, 97, 97, 97, 97, 97, 92.  In Nebraska the middle of summer is as good of quilting weather as it is in the dead of winter,  just a good idea to stay indoors.   We have nothing to complain about considering the weather related problems of the gulf coast with their recent tropical storm and 20 inches of rain over the last week, and Colorado where it is so dry and they have major fires burning and destroying hundreds of homes.  I am glad to be in the middle.

Two more applique blocks are completed.  The Golden Hine ( Ladies of the Sea -Sue Garman pattern) is from 1577.  It is an English ship and was the first ship to sail around the world with Sir Frances Drake.  The red and green block was based on a block from the Circuit Rider Quilt (pattern by Jenifer Dick).  Both of these blocks were a little difficult, the ship block had SO many rigging lines, and the red and green block is just odd to me, not really symetrical.

I just opened my latest purchase from an online quilt store.  This usually gives my heart a little excited flutter, but I am sorry to say that I am now buying needle threaders in bulk.

Happy 4th of July everyone, have a great week!
