When I got distracted last week by the large scraps created from piecing Meringue, I really was only a few seams away from finishing the quilt top. So, I sewed the final few seams and asked my husband to sneak outside with the quilt top between rain showers to get a few photos.
In the first 5 days of May, we got 15 inches of rain. Since then we’ve had less rain, but most days it’s a steady drizzle right now (we are looking forward to getting back to a more normal weather pattern!). Because we were not sure if it would start raining again, we started by trying to get a photo against the cottage under the large eaves of our roof (the eaves are oversized so that we can keep windows open even when it is raining). The lighting conditions didn’t do a lot of favors for the quilt top, in my opinion.
So instead, my husband headed over to a more green backdrop. I think it’s pretty amazing how he seems to blend right in to the jungle backdrop.
The Meringue quilt top measures 36 1/2″ square (I tested the baby size version of the pattern). I have my matching thread colors all selected, so now I’ll have to decide if it’s time to doodle up a quilting plan or start piecing the bonus quilt.
What are you working on this week?
