Summer is almost over and almost time for our youngest- 15, to head back to school. I just finished a quilt called “Playground” and it is my favorite finish of the summer. I was hooked into making this quilt after reading an introduction written by the author Camille Roskelley in her new book “Simply Retro” in which she writes that her quilt is a reminder of days when her big boys were little guys! Well, I wanted to have a reminder of when my big boys were small and this quilt does that with it’s classic traditional block and primary colors. So much so, that almost every time I’ve looked at it this week I’ve gotten teary-eyed remembering those sweet days with little ones running around.
