It's that time again to share
my August small quilt
along with Wendy and the rest of the quilter's
participating in her monthly mini.
Earlier in August I was sitting outside
and noticed how pretty the prairie sage looked in the garden.
The dusty purple and green colors looked so soft
and luscious on that hot August day.
I decided I would use this as my color palette.
(Running Man's bees are crazy in love with the flowers.)
A while ago I was the lucky winner of
Janet O's blog, rogue quilter anniversary giveaway.
Besides sending some of her awesome soap,
a mini Dresden plate pincushion, fabric,
the prize included Jo Morton's newest book!
I turned to the first quilt in the book, sorted through fabrics
and started sewing.
I love sewing hourglass blocks, especially
when they are over sized and easy to trim.
Using the easy sewing method Jo
describes in her book,
the blocks came out perfect every time.
Before I knew it the quilt was finished.

The colors and the simplicity of this quilt
harmonized with the Prairie Sage.
It's a lovely way to remember August.
Thanks again, Wendy, for your monthly encouragement.
Until Next Time-
