All the local fairs are either currently running, or already past. It usually signals that fall is rapidly approaching. But temperatures this week are still running in the 80's (of course the kids are back in school). And yesterday, Kristin reminded me that Christmas is less than 4 months away (Shock to the system).
The monkey quilts are finally finished. Not wanting to free motion quilt in each of the blocks, I decided to try some dot-to-dot quilting. With a chalk pencil, I market the center of each side of the blocks, and then quilted from dot to dot in a diamond pattern. It makes the block look nearly like a square-in-a-square pattern. It was fast, I didn't have to change feet, and I like how it looks.
Hope your holiday weekend is fun and restful.
