Deb's Quilts

Deb S. - Basket Weave Quilt

Ugh, July in Texas! Everything is dying in this heat. At least there are pretty quilts to look at. Deb S. sent in these beauties all finished.  Thank you Deb!

My parents' garden is flush with okra, purple hull peas, cucumbers, tomatoes, cantaloupes, and the watermelons are coming along. Peas cooked with ham, salted fresh sliced tomato, and cucumbers sliced in vinegar are the definition of summer food for me.

We have to wait until the sun starts to set to pick things in the garden. We get a bucket every day and have to shell peas nightly.  I'm again becoming the person so brings a grocery bag of cucumbers everywhere I go trying to get rid of them.

A full garden in the one upside of these hot hot summer days.  I know not everyone has room or time to have a large garden but even in the leanest years we have had a couple of tomato plants in buckets. I hope you are getting some veggies and some dirt on your hands!

Covered in Love

  1. Our garden is gone. Too much heat and humidity. Enjoy your bounty.

  2. Gorgeous quilts from Deb S. and such a fabulous donation for Covered in Love!!

  3. Deb's quilts are absolutely lovely. How thrilling it must be to receive completely finished quilts ready to give out to those in need. Thank you, Deb, for all the hard work that went into making thoses beauties!
    Your parents garden looks so good & green. Glad you are getting a good harvest this year. We did some container gardening this year & the best crops for us were the peppers & tomatoes. The rest was just "so-so". Gotta love those fresh veggies!

  4. I like the positive - even though it is hot we have pretty quilts!!!
    and they are!!! they will definitely be cherished!

  5. How nice that you get completely done quilts your don't have to finish. These were lovely. The gardens are drying up even here in western NY. We've had less than 2" of rain since late May and most of that was in dribs and drabs that hardly wet the ground. And higher than normal temps. No veggie garden here as I got tired of fighting the wildlife, including deer, rabbits, woodchucks, chipmunks and squirrels.

  6. Deb's quilts are gorgeous! Many thanks for stitching these beauties up for donation. We have to get our fresh veggies from the store, and the only dirt under my fingernails comes from scraping bug poop off the boat! But summer is the best for boating, too :)

  7. I love that pretty Falling Stars pattern.
