Week 4 of "Meadow"
Hi, guys! I hope everyone had a fun Fourth of July. Mom (a.k.a Terri) hosted a killer party at her house. She made tin foil dinners which have always been known in my family as "Hobo Dinners." We had more dessert options than any one party should - rice crispy treats, popcorn treats with m&ms, yummy fruit salad, cupcakes, banana pudding, and peach cobbler. It was stifling hot, but the boys had set up a small pool in the yard and the kids (and some of adults that will never grow up) had a great time playing and staying cool in the water. Of course, there were fireworks - it wouldn't be the 4th without them!
It was really nice to have everyone together. And it was also really nice to have the shop closed for a couple days to rest and recharge. Of course, it wasn't all play. We spent a couple days setting up the Christmas room - I shared a couple pictures in the previous blog. Read about the Christmas Room Here!
So now, we're all back to work and back into the normal swing of things. On yesterday's Facebook live video we shared pictured of this week's Meadow flowers and some pretty new fabrics that came in from Laundry Basket Quilts. If you don't have Facebook, remember you can still catch our videos after the live show is over: Watch this week's episode of "I Quilt So Hard."
This week I worked on flowers 7 & 8 for Meadow. I chose green flowers this week and they were a LOT of fun.
Tonight, after I make Zucchini Lasagna boats and put Harlie to bed I will start stitching the flowers down. I am using this little box of 50wt. threads from Superior to stitch them down. I can match all of the fabrics to one of these threads - I think I'll just have to add a black and/or grey.
If you are doing this block of the week with us and you want your own collection of SuperBobs, you can either call me at the shop or order it online. I will refund the shipping and stick it in with Friday's block. :) Order your SuperBobs Here!
Before you go, please admire the beauty that is Edyta Sitar's new line called "Something Blue." Blue and white/cream quilts are among the most collectible and this combo will never go out of style. We have the yardage and all the pre-cuts - it only took us a week to cut and fold the fat quarter bundles, haha!

Thank you for reading! I'm so thankful for this community of quilters - you're all so supportive and encouraging. Happy sewing, friends!
