    My "derecho" lap quilt

    I finished sewing the binding on this lap quilt while we were without power for 4 days with 102 degree heat following the storms created by the derecho at the end of June. This was a kit and not my usual color pallet, but I am very pleased with it. I did add the small yellow inner border and used the yellow again for the binding instead of the burgundy binding that was provided.

    I love the cream/yellow accents. Beautifully done. There is something about a porch, rocker and a quilt! Love it!!

    That looks so inviting and comfy. I love the colors.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    It looks like a picture you'd see on a calendar or something, doesn't it? I love this quilt! The colors are just beautiful! What was the name of the pattern (it doesn't look familiar to me). You sure made lemonade out of the meteorological lemons you were given!

    Beautiful quilt! Bummer about being without power during this heat. Sounds like you have it back on now, which is great because we are not done with the heat yet. Our outside thermometer (in the shade) reads 108 right now! Thank heavens for A/C!

    Lovely quilt and the photo makes we want to sit on that rocker, cover up (well not till the heat wave is over) and read.

    Lovely quilt. I think the yellow was a better choice for the binding, too.

    You are a very brave woman to work on binding in 102 heat. That would put me right on the edge of insanity!!! Kudos to you. I love how your quilt turned out, by the way. Thanks for sharing.
