I've made a little progress on the binding of the MOP quilt, but with TWO cats vying for my undivided attention, some work sessions have had to be postponed.

The heat and lots of rain have made my trips to the Farmer's Market a joy. My favorite finds are tiny yellow squash and long purple eggplant--items that can't be found at the grocery store. Of course, there have been delicious home-grown tomatoes, too, which I just eat fresh. I am freezing squash, okra, and eggplant to enjoy later.

With my guild's quilt show coming up October 5-6, I have been taking care of some quilt show duties like ordering posters. The photos were taken at a local favorite restaurant, Patio 44. We asked a friendly waiter to help us drape the large quilt over a railing so we could get a picture with the white hydrangeas in the foreground. The quilt is 108" x 108" and quite heavy.
