Temperature quilt. This is July. It really hasn't been that hot. Only two days above 85 degrees Farenheit.
The top so far, January through July. E was holding it backwards. I didn't notice until editing.
I mentioned we were in Galena, IL last week. There are a handful of antique stores there. In one I found some hexies that I had to rescue. They are strung together on thread with a rusted needle, complete with cardboard template. It was with the instruction sheet.
The instructions are not for English Paper Piecing, but that is probably what I will do to complete the top. It is obvious that the yellow is for the center of the flowers. I will have to count the other patches to see what is supposed to be petals vs. background. Actually, now that I think about it, probably the patterned fabric is the flower.
There were also two orphan Dresden Plate blocks that I didn't rescue. And a ton of quilts and one beautiful top. None seemed outrageously priced, but I certainly couldn't buy them all, and at this point they would just live in the closet, so I thought it best not to buy any.
And a bit of happy mail for me. Haven't even cracked it open yet. Can't wait to read it. Don't know if I'll ever make a house, but they are so stinkin' cute.
