Summer Days Go By

Cindy and I are reveling in lots of excellent quilting news — the most exciting of which is that Cindy’s Girls’ Best Friend quilt will be featured in the next issue of Make Modern magazine, which will be published tomorrow! Issue 29 is stuffed with wonderful quilting ideas and we are hopping up and down in anticipation of this milestone for Gray Barn Designs! Yippee!

Last week we ran a contest to give away a 6-month subscription to Make Modern for someone who commented on our blog. Elaine was the winner and her name has been submitted to the publishers of Make Modern who generously donated the gift. Thank you Make Modern!

I spent some time on the farm last night walking with our older sister and enjoying the peace and quiet of the hill. The sun was offering a soft golden light. It was just what I needed.

Older sister is a lover of all things birch trees. We caught this reflection in the pond.
LOL — Mom had some cement work done around the house and one of the cats left their mark forever.

The improve graduation quilt is completed and gifted. It’s headed off to college in about 6 weeks.

Neutral tones and strong purples with a scrappy binding (thanks to Cindy)!

Other exciting quilting news is on the horizon soon, so be sure to stay tuned.
