Quilt News From the Valley! Happy September! Heat Wave, New Batik Colors, Walk in the Neighborhood Color it Green

A path in the neighborhood, notice the greens?

    I picked up some beautiful fat quarter batiks and a small floral in local fabric store.

 Time to press them getting ready for sub-cutting.

Hello Quilt Friends and Happy September!

This last couple of weeks has been hot around here so not much piecing has been done. I spent some time browsing the local fabric store, good sales and air conditioning. 

I did get some hand quilting done on my Orange X Block Quilt and pressed all the new batiks and the small floral fabric I got on sale. 

And I got some good quilt book reading time in, enjoying my copy of Sew Charming by Mary Etherington and Connie Tesene.

I browsed Temecula Quilt Co.'s website and enjoyed looking through their patterns and books. Sheryl Johnson's new book, Return to Temecula, looks like a great reference for inspiration.

So that is the quilt news from the valley where I've been staying in the shade and moving slow. I'm remembering to be thankful and praying for people in Louisianna suffering from Hurricane Ida.

How's your weather?

I'll be by to visit

The weather pattern has changed a lot in recent years. Our August was also hot, but the air drier than usual. Then all of a sudden we have autumnal weather, cool and rainy. This rain is from a low pressure front and not the usual typhoons. Actually we have had few and mainly weak typhoons. So I am wondering what is to come?
You have bought some beautiful batiks and I am looking forward to seeing them in your future quilts.
Will you be stitching something green in September?
All the best. I hope the weather cools down and becomes quilter friendly.

It's lovely here - suddenly hot and sunny but with cool nights. I'm enjoying it while it lasts. Your neighbourhood looks lovely for walking.
