We had quite an amazing storm here yesterday - power out for a couple of hours, and the sky turned so dark at around 4:00pm that it was almost as though night had already fallen. Actually I love storms like this - with the rain pelting down, lightning continually lighting up the sky and the thunder crashing around you - I find it quite exciting, and I love this reminder of the power and beauty of Mother Nature.
Poor little Ollie wasn't quite so keen - shaking and jumping with fright at every loud clap of thunder. Lots of cuddles were required!
Above are several quilts tops finished - only one of these has actually been quilted and finished (oops; better get that organised!). They are -
top left: another view of the sampler quilt shown in a previous post
top right: 'Persian Tiles' quilt, pattern designed by Carol Lewis, made in 'Kashmir III' fabrics
bottom left: sampler quilt made with hand pieced blocks, machine pieced sashing, cornerstones and borders
bottom right: '12 Fat Quarter Quilt' designed by Lorna Corcoran and made in the William Morris-inspired 'Morris Workshop' fabric by Barbara Brackman. This one was finished as a birthday gift for my sister.
And hopefully my French Braid quilt will be added to the list of finished quilt tops very soon. Now, to get the quilting organised.....
