Loooooooooooove the photo of the kids in the pretty blue pool. We're heading to a Kahneeta soon for a swim holiday. Can't wait to see that quilt all done and ready to enjoy.. who's it for?
((hugs)), Teresa :-)


The quilt looks great, I am so excited about starting this, my background fabric is ordered and waiting for it to come. Thank you for generously giving us these wonderful blocks.


What a lovely, clean-looking quilt! Your embroidery is beautiful, as always!


I love the peek at your progress! I'm reduced to working on pillows...just two. Must figure out a new fabric to work on as, just as you suggested, the Irish linen has proved to be too limp and fragile. Muslin you think?

Kids look like they are having a blast. The embroidery looks gorgy on that quilttop. Bernie


Looks beautiful! I need to get working on mine! :)

Oh, sorry to hear about the Irish linen--I was afraid of that.

Bleached white muslin is ideal--wash it first though because it will shrink a bit; the tighter weave of cotton will yeild much better results.

Thanks Susan! It's been my pleasure to share the patterns with everyone. Hope your quilt brings you lots of happy stitching moments. I'd love to see it when it's finished.

Hi Teresa:: This is our neighborhood "swim club" pool--it was replastered and refilled before the season started this year and is quite sparkly blue again--and yes, the kids are having a blast! Kahneeta sounds like fun.

I hope to get my quilt finished soon, it's been such a lo-o-o-o-o-ong project; I will probably keep this one!


It looks like you are having soooo much fun this summer. Love your pool.

I think your quilt is beautiful! I'm sure you will enjoy it for many years to come. What an accomplishment.


So pretty!
