A Farewell to Summer

I just finished a paper pieced small landscape for my guild’s small quilts auction.  As I wrote earlier, it’s a coastal scene that was a Carol Doak (the doyenne of paper piecing) pattern.

As usual, I found it boring to follow someone else’s pattern as my favorite part of quilting is designing the quilt.  I did enjoy fossicking around my ever growing scraps collection for fabric bits.

With this piece I hereby declare the summer to be done, and will fold away my white pants until next Memorial Day.
