My Summer Slice (Scrap Buster) quilt top is done!

As I wrote in the previous post about this project, here, the blocks were pretty fast to complete. During the weekend I sewed all the blocks together and completed the quilt top.


This is how it looks on my porch floor, all the 82 different fabrics in their glory. This is a really scrappy quilt!

If you click on the picture and look in the lower right corner, you may see that Dr. Seuss signed the quilt top! I used all kinds of fabrics from my stash and also a lot of scraps if the pieces were big enough. I didn't think I had that many different fabrics, but, when all comes to all there are still many fat quarters and other fabrics from my stash that I didn't cut into.

Now I have actually completed my ALYoF for July, but maybe I will quilt it too before the month is over?

Anyway, I will not struggle with a big quilt on my lap right now, because these last few days we have had temperatures up to 86 F (30 C), and it feels like I am melting. This is very hot for where I live, it doesn't often get over 70 F during summer. In addition the houses are insulated to keep the heat in during winter, and not out during the few "hot spots" we get in the summer. Fortunately, we got some rain this evening, so the outside temperature fell about 25 F. We have to air out the house now to be able to sleep tonight! (As you may understand, AC is not a standard equipment in homes where I live).

Happy quilting in the heat!
