Home Quarter in Wovens


For the last couple of weeks of my summer break I have decided to tackle some of my UFO's that need to be quilted.  This quilt was our working prototype when Lori and I were writing the pattern for Home Quarter so it has been sitting as a flimsy for awhile.  This is the lap size without borders so measures 45" x 60" so makes a good sized baby quilt or small lap quilt for a seniors home.

I quilted it with a new pantograph called Parchment, used light grey So Fine thread and Quilters Dream Blend batting. 

Last night was the peak of the Perseids Meteor Shower so I got out my lawn chair and put my camera on the tripod and took photos from 10 to 11pm. We have a great north view right at the constellation Perseid so didn't have to travel anywhere, just sat on my driveway! Saw about 12 meteors in the hour and the one that was the most spectacular starting in Cassiopeia and traveled right across the sky for a few seconds so only caught the start of it in my photo using my wide angle lens.   It has a beautiful burst as it burnt up so I was sad that was out of my camera frame, but still a nice bright streak in the photo.

Most of the meteors looked like this in comparison.
