The Bloggers Quilt Festival Spring 2009 is still going on so please visit Amy’s site and the over 400 entries and my entry, Memories & Merlot, as well.

Just a Hint of SummerIt was over 90 degrees here yesterday and is supposed to be again today. Then it should cool down to normal spring temperatures again. That was enough to remind me that Summer is just around the corner.

“Just a Hint of Summer” features an embroidered Sunflower of hand dyed silk ribbon, pearl cotton and beads on crinkled batik fabric with lots french knots in the Sunflower center.

The sunflower batik has beads added and the purple insets are pieced of multiple purple batiks.

I hope that you have been working on a Twilt or two. These little pieces have really sparked my creativity in so many unrelated ways.
