This is the second of the two quilt tops I finished last week. This one is larger and, with its darker colors, would make a good companion quilt for a toddler or preschool child while watching TV or enjoying his favorite book. The star points (hst's) were made from pieces leftover from a larger top and when I found a picture of this quilt online, I sized the blocks, then added the strips as shown to make a pattern like the original. So, here's another top, stacked, waiting for cooler weather.
Today wouldn't have been the day; it was 107* shortly after noon, then rain circled us (actually we only got enough to show tracks in the dust) and cooled the air, for which we were grateful! It is just so sad to see the pastures brown and the grass gnawed to the ground. The heifers here at the barn have not had much grass to eat since May, only hay, and this morning Popa fed a bale to a larger herd. That makes every bale we put up valued.
"It is of the LORD's mercies that we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness." Lam. 3:22,23
