Back to reality

We have been at the beach with family for the last week or so. We had a ball but I am exhausted. I am ready to get back to my life and my sewing.

I finished this before I left. There is a lot of yellow!

My friend Helen sent me this pattern and I love it. I am doing this for my second grandson. Don't tell but I have yet to make him a quilt.

I love doing liberated but it is relaxing to do something traditional occasionally.

This is my very favorite block. If I ever made a quilt with just two fabrics it would be these two.

Got these great black and white fabrics. I love the summer but the rhythm and routine of regular life are great too.

My little boys are back with me today. I am not sure if I will find time to sew but I will have a good time with them.

I love your "yellow" quilt - it's so happy and bright! It'll be wonderful this winter when everything is dark and gloomy.

Your B&W fabrics looks great! I don't think you can have too many of them.

I won't tell. . . I'm just starting to work on a quilt for my 2nd GD, and she's 5 now. So, I won't be throwing any stones at you! The friendship stars are cute - I think they're a great pattern. Have fun!
