I treated myself to six new ceramic pots and six geranium plants to go in them.

After I finished the five blocks on value for my Design Class, I figured I'd just continue on and make them into a quilt.
I have to leave them in block format until after class next month. But in the meantime, I started planning out the rest of the quilt.
This is it so far. I'm thinking I will add a few more rows of mostly dark on the bottom. But first, I've got to sew them into bigger chunks and mark them so I can take the top rows off and move the whole thing up. I don't have any more room at the bottom to add rows on the wall.

I was hoping to get the quilting on Starry Starry Peace done today, but It didn't happen. I'm so close, just one and half rows to go, but I gave up for the night - it's too hot up here.
While Eduard was busy working on this quilt, I kept busy working on my Value Study quilt. I gotta get a better name. I was trying to incorporate the blocks I made for my design class into it. I don't think that one on the bottom left is going to work - it's gonna get ejected.
The dogs were hot, too, and happy to finally leave the studio.

I loaded the Star Storm quilt, named "Starry Starry Peace" onto my longarm today.
I decided on the quilting, which I will start bright and early tomorrow. I want to finish it in one day. It is 80" by 80"... Stay tuned.
To keep busy, I finished the Modern Fans 2 quilt. It needed to be trimmed and the binding put on. Easy peasy.
Earlier in the day, I saw the coolest group of dandelion seed heads on my morning walk. They were totally undisturbed and perfectly round, near the P-Patch on the south end of the Longfellow Creek Trail.
