The Cottage Journal 07.05.2022

Our first July 4th in White House was fun! Our neighbors up and down our street graciously provided us with some great firework displays! One thing that I am loving in our new digs is the wide expanse of sky we have – it is somehow bigger than what we could see from our little cottage on the edge of the city. Here, even though our view at eye level is houses, houses, and more houses, just looking up makes my heart sing. This was our view a couple of days ago, right after sunset.

So I’ve actually completed a couple of quilts in the studio! For this first one, I took a sheet that matches our bedding, backed it with a nice gray, and quilted it in some big loops (design called Filigree). I found a quilt rack that matches our mission style bedroom furniture, and that’s where this quilt will live – when not in use for a cozy afternoon nap, of course!

And then, my eye caught the pretty colors of some flannel scraps that I’ve had forever.

I decided to make some improv charity quilts – here’s what I did with all of my blue flannel scraps!

Next I think I’ll work with all of those greens….
