a sunny sunday morning















It's a sunny sunday morning in may. And I have a fresh, new quilt to show you. 
My "sea glass diamonds" finished (last night) at 50" by 72". Pieced and quilted with Aurifil thread (which I have come to really love as my sometimes temperamental machine behaved perfectly).
The vintage sheets top paired with Hobbs Thermore polyester batting and the soft cotton voile (54" wide) came together like a dream. I basted it hanging on the wall, with pins. Quilted it using fixion pen to mark the lines. And it worked like a miracle... So soft and light. A true summer quilt. This is my 8th quilt from 8" like sided triangles. Probably not my last...

The hammock looks a bit lonely, so I am going to spend some time there reading my book. I'll enjoy the sweet company of my cat, and maybe even her new friend from yesterday?



Wish you a lovely sunday, too!

This beauty may have just moved to the top of my favorite Triangle Quilts list! The colors and your lovely photography make me want to get in that hammock and read a book. What's the little creature in the last photo?? My cat would have eaten him, unfortunately!

You made a lovely quilt. The colours look just right for the name, or vice versa. And such a sweet looking kitty you have for company! Thank you for sharing the pics.
