A Summery Quilt

IMG_5483Each night, once the kids are tucked away, completely exhausted after another day of swimming, scooting, boating and running wild and free, I pick up my latest project, alternating between knitting and sewing.  I just finished hand-sewing the binding on this quilt and I am quite pleased with the way it turned out.  It’s perfectly girly (made with Posy by Aneela Hoey fabric), which will please my niece, and I hope it drapes nicely over the foot of her bed, as that’s the size I was going for.  My mom stumbled across this amazing field of sunflowers, and it seemed the perfect backdrop to show off the quilt.  Our summer in Northern Michigan is drawing to a close- I can hardly believe how fast it flew by, and I am already mourning heavily the fact that we won’t see our cottage again for another year. We’ll just have to squeeze every last ounce of fun and adventure out of this weekend and let our memories carry us through til next year.

      This was actually taken in Michigan, but there is a small, lovely sunflower patch at Sweet Berry Farm in Rhode Island- nothing as big as this, but still pretty!
