102 Degrees Today

Nothing new or exciting going on here...just trying to stay cool this weekend. I've been doing some odds and ends type sewing for the last few weeks. Finish putting together the first quadrant of my friendship triangles quilt. I've laid out the second quadrant.
I finished quilting this little wall hanging (finally). This is the first time I've quilted pebbles. It is a very intense process.
Just this little bit took almost a whole spool of thread.
I loaded another practice quilt on the frame. I finished quilting it with no problems - I have no idea what I did differently, but I did not have any tension problems. No pictures. I got the binding sewn on it yesterday.
A bunch of us got together yesterday to sew. I worked on binding, hemming, and a little bit of piecing on a quilting that has been in the works for over three years (poor thing gets worked on one day a year). I also cut out a new quilt last I really needed to start another quilt. The new quilt is going to be fast, fun and easy, I haven't made one of those in long time.
