Summer to me is partially defined by the fact that we can grill burgers whenever we want, without wearing a winter coat! This was our dinner on the grill Saturday night. They turned out pretty yummy, if I do say so myself.
Waiting for my tomato plant to give me some red tomatoes. Guess the weather hasn't been hot enough yet for them to turn. I only have cherry tomato plants, but that's okay with me.
I did choose this orange flame fabric for the backing of the wall hanging. It was not much wider than the front, so I added some muslin leaders to the edges and loaded it onto Gemma. I used a variagated thread on top and an orange thread on the back for the quilting. I went around each letter and number and in the rows made flowers and leaves. In the border I did small loops.
Next will be the binding. I was able to put the label and hanging sleeve on the back, but they will need to be hand sewn along the edges. The binding I chose was a light green.
