    Hi Mary, great quilts again today, l have just started removing the old fabric off a blanket box, another job that has been waiting for years!Can’t wait to get back to making quilts, but it’s an uphill battle to get on top of ironing the fabric mountain, l think a lot will be moving on to greener pastures, hope everyone is keeping safe, best wishes from Sandy

    Wow! The quilts are amazing! Debbie has been very busy and Joel’s quilt is stunning! Your morning glories are something else! I’ve got lots this year in that same color. The moonflowers didn’t reseed themselves though. They were so pretty last year. Finally had rain, not sure the lawn will come back. Loving the cooler temperatures! Jam in MA

      Jan – I have never in all the years I’ve planted morning glories ever had results like this! I am in awe of them!

    Very cool projects! I’m working on my orange project. I changed my mind last way through, so I’m re-doing pieces and parts!

    You’re morning glories are so beautiful! Thank you for sharing your beautiful work!
    I know how much work it is as my husband does so much of this every year too and it is lots of work and so beautiful too! You are amazing!!!

    Your yard is always so nice to see whether it’s your pretty plants or funny puppy pictures with toys around them. I never tire of looking at lovely quilts your readers show nor yard and pet pictures. Thanks for always sharing this with us.
    And someday I will make your pattern Frankenstein as he always cracks me up when I see it sewn up.

      Kathy – thanks so much for all those nice thoughts! I guess if I didn’t enjoy my yard so much, I’d have to move to town. Love to get those quilt photos from readers!

    Debbie- congrats on your fair ribbons.
    Joel-your quilt is awesome.
    The morning glories are very pretty.
    The quilt pictures from the book are such a tease. So many ideas in my head to make. Can’t wait to get the book. The sew along sounds fun.

    What a fabulous quilt show, Mary! Thanks! Great job, Debbie Goad. Your Frankie is a handsome guy! *wink*

    Love the pictures today. Debbie Goad congrats on the ribbons. Joel your quilt is stunning. The yellow quilts are varied and fun. And the morning glories are glorious!

    Yes, it was a beautiful day here in Central Ohio and my birthday🎂🎂. The quilts today, once again, are beautiful! Some of you have gotten a lot more finished than some of us—me included 😹😹😹. Thanks for sharing such wonderful work, Mary. Our purple Clematis is beautiful until about the end of August. Then it gets all brown and crispy ( even with plenty of rain) for a little while, then, it blooms all gorgeous again! A friend gave it to us 17 years ago and it is still going strong😀

  12. Diane and the gang in Central Ohio

    Ooops. Now that I’ve read the other comments, I see that maybe that is a Morning Glory? 😹😹. No wonder my husband is the gardener. I’d probably plant sticks!!

    Mary and All, The quilts are all so lovely! I do love the second one shown, must make a scrappy quilt like inspiring! Mary, is this your quilt pattern? I’d love to purchase the pattern. The morning glory photos are beautiful as well! I must get started on fall/Orange projects now as well!

    1. Mary Etherington Post author

      Yes, this is a Country Threads pattern – I think it’s called Honor America – I will check. Have you looked in the online store – it might be there.

    Your morning glories are glorious! The plants really out did themselves. All the quilts are wonderful. I enjoyed your photos from your new book. Continuing the saga of our old house, yesterday the hose from the pressure tank gave way and the basement began to flood. Luckily, my son-in-law was there to start the sump pumps. It is always something. Hopefully, we are to get much needed rain this weekend. Take care.

    My mouth is wide open again seeing beautiful quilts, your yard and flowers. I remember someone in my family had a wall of morning glories. As kids that was a favorite place for hide & seek. (how many spiders have been in my hair and I didn’t care about that back then!)
    I can’t sleep so came here to see what Mary was up to! What a great post!
