Canopy...Can o'corn?

We have shade!! Today Dave decided to get an umbrella for our deck table. Maybe this will be a good idea. It already made it cooler on the deck. It might keep it dry too, who knows. Anyway he was against getting one all year and changed his mind. Musta been a good deal.

And then this freebie came in the mail today from Kaffe Fasset and Amy Butler. It is cotton, only 50wt, too fine for machine quilting but I will have to promote it on the blog. It's probably worth about $50. Nice.

What to do with gradations. This is Anne from VietNam's quilt. I took it off her blog. It's a vertical quilt but I wanted a bigger picture so I turned it sideways. The uneven hems are tricky and not so well executed. So many quilters think that it would look good if they left the edges the way they looked before the quilt was backed and quilted. I think: eh.

Here's another one that uses similar fabrics, also from Anne, who moved back to Austin TX recently.
A Nancy Crow-ite.

Here's another bullseye from Anne. It is huge, which you can see in the picture below

More gradation uses here from her.
