I am on a roll this week. I finished my Buttermilk Basin Summer pillow with a few days to spare! Summer is officially June 21st. Although if you were to look around here it sure doesn't feel like summer. I had so much fun with this little project and it looks so cute sitting on the entry way bench. Mary Anne at QuiltWorks made a sample and actually made a red checked ruffle all around it...absolutely adorable! But, when it came down to it...my house is anything but ruffled. So I made binding just like on a big quilt and tacked it all down on the back side. I like how it turned out :)
The rest of this week I am spending time on the coast. First at a friends beach house in Newport with some girlfriends and then by the weekend HH and I will be in Cannon Beach for the 40th anniversary of the sand castle building contest!!! Which meant that I need to prep some projects for Portland. I went through the pile of project trying to find just the right one...something not too detailed but, that will get done before Fall. Like...maybe I could actually hang a fall quilt up! I chose Harvest Moon. Got busy and prepped the first 3 blocks. Sometimes it is fun to take a break from the UFO's and start a brand new project...refreshing like a margarita on a hot day!
