I detest making backings for quilts. That's what I did last week.
I pieced six backings.
I ordered wide backings for three large quilts. I would love to get all nine quilted before I leave in November...it could happen!
I also went to the Alaska State Fair. If you aren't familiar with Alaskan agriculture...we are known for gigantic vegetables. We have a short but intense growing season because of the increased sunlight during the summer months. I got to see the prize-winning pumpkin...a mere 1,182 pounds.
This pumpkin weighed 1,289 pounds but was disqualified because it had a hole.
I walked through a perennial garden at the fair that was like a jungle! I saw this plant which was at least six-feet tall with these gorgeous burgundy flowers. There were no name tags...any idea what the name of this plant is?
No bear sightings lately but I often see moose. This mom and calf were crossing a road I have to drive that is under major construction. I know it's hard to see them...they blend in perfectly with the brown dirt.
