At the time of writing this, we are not seeing what could be called summertime weather - we did, at least, have a sunny day on the 21 for the solstice, but now we've got weak sunshine and mostly clouds, with more rain in the forecast. Blech! So when I saw that the theme for next week's Quilting Gallery Quilt Contest was Summertime Fun, I thought I'd see if I could find something that would brighten my day, and make me smile.
I've entered this little quilt that I made for a Flickr MiniQT Swap several years ago. I like those cheeky little ants!
Voting for this contest doesn't open until Friday, but you should take this opportunity to check out some of the wonderful features you can find over at the Quilting Gallery. There is a wealth of information to be had - everything from shop locators to blog listings, swaps and contests, guild listings and a learning centre. There is something for every quilter!
Remember to check out the weekly contest that Michelle hosts - there are always some inspiring entries - and maybe enter a quilt yourself! There are some wonderful prizes awarded!
