Spring has been a very busy time of year at work for me which has limited my quilting time. School is winding down ~ next week is our final week! I'm so looking forward to summer! Hence, I named my newest quilt Touch of Summer!
The chevrons are all made with HST using the Always and Forever fabric line by Alex Anderson and Kona white.
The backing is a white with blue polka dots that I found in my stash ~ perfect! The blue on white chevron is also Always and Forever.
I finished sewing on the binding last night! I love the pop of red framing the blue and white chevrons! I don't remember the name of the binding fabric.
This is one of the most densely quilted quilts that I have made. Without marking, I followed the lines of the chevrons every 1/2" so they are a little organic feeling (not completely straight). It is a perfect size for a summer quilt finishing at 47" x 50".
It is my newest favorite! What do you think?

I also finished the 6th and final book in the What's in a Name book challenge. The last title was to have something on a calendar. I chose to read The Friday Night Knitting Club by Kate Jacobs.
This novel is a story of friendship and the bond that is formed through the unlikely group of women at the Friday Night Knitting Club. The main character is Georgia Walker, owner of Walker and Daughter, a local knit shop. Georgia is a single mom of Dakota. Anita is a older woman that befriended Georgia when Dakota's dad left her and helps to run the shop. This novel deals with many issues that women face and the strength and support that is found among friendship. The ending was a little unexpected. I enjoyed this book. You can see other novels in this category here. This wraps up my book challenge! I hope you enjoyed my selections!
