After a finish I like to reward myself with a new project. This is the beginning of a Summer Breeze quilt from Scrap Basket Surprises by Kim Brackett. (Incidentally, she has a new book out.)
All of her quilts are based on 2-1/2″ strips and great for scrap quilters like me.
This one will be a wedding quilt for a co-worker, a lovely and deserving young woman named Jenna. She has chosen such pretty wedding colors, and I am working them into the quilt.
Just a small funny story about Jenna. A while back, my then-14-year-old-son found out Jenna wasn’t married. “That!” he exclaimed, throwing up his hands, “Is proof than men are idiots!” I guess one man finally got the right idea.
