"That beautiful season the Summer!
Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light;
and the landscape
Lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood."
- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Remember this little quilt? It is about 7 inches square.

I made another one. This one is 12 inches square. I made up my own design for this one.

Here it is with my watch for size comparison. I love these little quilts. So fun to embroider the center and then add a border.

I went strawberry picking early this morning just down the road. Walking through the field, past lush rows of lettuce and squash to a far corner where a group of people were already filling boxes and bowls with juicy red berries. Fragrant strawberries, the best smell of summer. At least until the blueberries come along.

"Kindred spirits are not so scarce as I used to think. It's splendid to find out there are so many of them in the world."
-L.M.Montgomery (Anne of Green Gables)

Enjoy this fine summer day, kindred spirits.

I have not made a miniature quilt yet but I have a few earmarked ready for me to take the plunge. Love yours including the stichery in the center. I do enjoy summer, but fall is my favorite season as long as I don't think about what comes next. Enjoy your weekend.
