Quilt news and happy July 4th!

June was the wedding month around here with a fabulous wedding in San Juan Bautista, CA, 
and with grand children running around and gorgeous scenery it was a blessing.

And 4th of July is here, we have so much to be thankful for!

Kaja put forth a new challenge for AHIQ, and then said that it would be fun to find our most asymmetrical quilt and then our most symmetrical quilt and show those, great idea and lots of fun Kaja.

And maybe I'll start a new asymmetrical quilt, or art quilt, as I like to call them. 
Lately I've been working on projects with a lot of symmetry which is good for a change but my heart will always be in art quilts.

Take time to visit Carol Lyles Shaw and see her classes and wonderful modern art quilts. Her quilt designs and classes look exciting!

And that quilt friends, is the quilt news from the valley, where we are enjoying summer.

I'll be by to visit!

ALL your quilts are stunning, but I especially like your asymmetrical quilts with strong contrast thrown in for extra pizzazz.
The Santa Clara Rush is a gem.
How wonderful to have a happy wedding with plenty of family attending and sunshine glorifying the day.
