The Kaw Valley Quilt Guild had a speaker, Kim Lapacek, in July.  She runs "Project Quilting". Her enthusiasm was contagious.  So I decided to give my creative juices a chance to run a little wild for the July entry.  Her theme was "Summer Sizzle".  

Around here the lament is "it's so hot you could fry eggs on the sidewalk".  The title of my quilt is "Hazard of Cooking on the Pavement".

My husband was even game on getting the tread on the quilt.  We found that painting the tire and running it over a piece of cardboard only printed the center of the tire.  So we both painted the tire and then we carefully laid the quilt over the tire and patted it down.

Have you ever had trouble threading your needle.....who hasn't.

Next time try turning the needle around so that you are pushing the thread through the opposite side of the eye.  Needles are made by pushing the equipment through the needle to make the eye. Sometimes it is smoother on the side where it starts through the needle rather than the side where it comes out.
