summer inspired quilt


so summer’s in full swing here. how can i tell? soccer soccer soccer! here’s the 8 year old manning the goal. and the 8 year old telling the 6 year old all his advise…oh dear heavens.
that’s funny huh dude? the 8 year old thinking he’s all pro and stuff…oh whatever.
the little one was loooooooving soccer too. and with all this summer going on, like soccer, summer reading programs, going to sleep late, waking up late, running in the sprinklers, spending who knows how many hours outside…i got inspired to make a quilt with fun colors so that i can have a picnic quilt too.

remember those vintage sheets i got at the second hand stores? the stripy one is the left over pillow case from my pillow case skirt, and i made a skirt for the little missy with the green sheet , i’ve cut out my amy butler “barcelona” skirt out of the blue one (oh and i didn’t hurl while doing it so i think i’m good to go with the zipper) . but i had some left over and i thought…”that would be sweet in a quilt” so there you go. my quilt inspired by summer and made out of my vintage sheets i can’t wait to finish it so that i can take it to the 4th of july “stadium of fire” celebration. yeah that’s right, i got free tickets and i’m sitting on the field…cause i’m just that cool…actually we’re part of the shin-dig…i’m not quite sure what we will be doing something to do with honoring the soldiers overseas and stuff, but whatever we’re on the field and it was free and oh yeah, hanna montana going to sing…i totally wish i had a tween girl that would appreciate this…maybe i’ll get online and download some of her stuff and force feed it to the boys…do you think they would appreciate that?
