It's Just Too Hot!

Yesterday we broke a record - 14 consecutive days with triple digit temps - ugh! So, what's a girl to do? Well, stay inside with the a/c and sew the day away. :-) Yes, another 'instant gratification' project. "IG" projects are really good for the quilting soul - you get to cut fabric and just sew to your heart's content without regard for much.

I used a Snippet's layer cake by American Jane and Moda (all 42 layer cakes - woohoo) to make these ginormous snowballs! The picture is awful - would have better to spread the flimsy on the floor - hmmm!!!

Two fun days in my sewing room but today I must wander out into the heat. Life must go on! :-)

So as I skip away humming "Another one bites the dust", I wish you a good day and remain..........

In Friendship!

Cheerful number and you really have been putting pedal to the metal. Get on that sunscreen before heading out!

I love your snowballs! Although they would melt in your heatwave...:) Have a wonderful day!!

I do not miss THAT kind of heat. I grew up in the Southern CA desert and now I go back home to visit and melt. I'd have so many quilt tops from never leaving my a/c. Another great quilt.

I'm new to quilting and a little naive. Is a flimsy just what you call the quilt top? Now when you quit laughing at please stop by and give me the answer, LOL! I also just posted about a give-away my friend Nicole is doing. Cindy

For us it is not non-stop heat, it seems to be non-stop rain. Alas, the sun is coming through this afternoon. I love your quilting finish! Thank you for sharing!

I have a quilt like this with feedsack sqares. It was fun to make and beautiful like yours. Instant gratification is what I'm all about.
