Hello from Renton, WA.

Where it's summer and wild berries and farmers markets are ripe for picking.
My grandson loves berries. I bought beef steak tomatoes and they'll be sliced as a side dish for dinner.

Gossypium Quilt Shop  is hosting Kaffe Facett for classes and a lecture.
I'm planning on going to the lecture, September 16, 2017.

I put up photos of some of the ways I use letters in my work. I like to use fabrics with compositions on them. BasicGrey has 'Compositions, Newsprint, Number Jumble-etc for Moda.
Tim Holtz has fabric with maps, letters, numbers etc.
My butterfly quilt has Tim Holtz fabric on the backing with alphabet.

For my newest blocks, I'm calling them 'Smoky Purple' or ' Purple Haze',  I used a fabric pack of smoky purple batiks, made in India, I found at JoAnn Fabrics. I used to work there and know that once in a while some great fabric comes rolling through. There's also some 'Compositions' fabric by BasicGrey in there.

I made the blocks in an 'Improv Piecing' class by Debbie  at Gossypium Quilt shop.
Great class.

I'm linking up with Ann and Kaja for AHIQ #24, where all kinds of improvisation is celebrated. Stop in to share and get inspiration!

Have a great week and remember to share a smile.

I'll be by to visit.
