Candy Bars

in quilts

Yes Moda makes such lovely, lovely candy bars!!  I love them.  You get 4 packets of 40 each, some duplicates but not a lot.  I have 3 of the packets hand pieced with a 2 1/2 inch white on white square.  I have no photo for the quilt I am making – I saw one on line some place after I already had the same idea in my head.  I will have to get the design wall back out again soon to start putting it together.


The names of the bundles if you are familiar with Moda you might recognize and know what the fabric lines look like.


It has been so very hot lately – no rain for about a month now as I am not counting the two times this last month that we actually had about 5 minutes of rain that barely even got the deck wet.  Even out here in the country among the trees and away from pavement it has been 95 the last two days – fire danger has now been moved to high.  I am surprised that the firework displays for July 4th have not been cancelled already and won’t be surprised if they are cancelled by then.

Lovely Tiger Lilies at our house, I have a large patch of them.  This is just one of many.


Other than hand piecing the blocks shown earlier I have gotten no quilting done while our daughter is visiting, she will be going back home on Tuesday morning.  We did a little shopping earlier today but I’m afraid the heat sent us back home, we did not do much.  Tomorrow we will try to get out earlier.
