Summer has turned to fall overnight, but I'm not quite ready for the change of seasons. There are too many quintessential summertime pleasures I missed out on. What’s summer, after all, if you haven’t basked in the sun, quenched a thirst with lemonade, or eaten your fill of watermelon, sweet corn, or home-grown tomatoes?
Instead, I “preserved” a bit of summer to savor whenever I please! My Strawberry Patch doll quilt was just the thing to capture the sweetness of the season.
I asked my friend, Ruth, if she’d quilt and bind it for me. To my great delight, she agreed!
Just look at her tiny, even stitches, and the way the yellow perle cotton catches the light. She crosshatched through the 2" squares...
