Summertime - Sewingtime

I have been trying to finish some of the projects I started in 2012.  The the last few days I've finished Block No.6 Of Yoko Saito's BOM, from the Quiltmania magazines and put it together. I have enjoyed making all the little houses and will now machine quilt. So many of the Japanese quilts have straight line quilting and I like the look, so I'm going to try that on this one.



 
It is hot today 37C. A little bit too hot to sew without the cooling being on,but a change is on it's way. Time to look at the next WIP that I want to finish.
