Despite a couple more weeks of school, June 1 always feels like the turning point into Summer for me. The 90 degree weather yesterday didn't hurt. It's time for the June Show Me Something challenge and linkup. I hope you'll share your finished quilts out in the wild. Please share up to 3 new or old quilt finishes for Show Me Something Outdoors. You have until June 30 to linkup, plenty of time to make something new if you'd like.
Is the outdoors featured in the design of your quilt or the fabric you chose? Maybe you use the quilt as a picnic blanket or to cuddle up with on a breezy evening in the backyard. Perhaps your quilt has been to a park or a beach. Personally, most of my finished quilt photo shoots happen in my backyard. Here are a few photos of my quilts away from home. (Click on photos to read more about these projects.)
I enjoyed the architecture of this sidewalk overpass, not far from home.
This bench is outside the building where my small quilt group used to meet.
My guild has done quilt retreats to the Marin headlands. We stay and sew in those buildings in the back, steps from the beach.
This was in my in-law's backyard. I photographed numerous quilts in their backyard while we lived there during a remodel at our house.
I look forward to seeing your finished quilts and where you've taken them!
