Looks like we're in for some rain between tonight and Friday. We sure need it. I miss falling asleep at night listening to rain on the roof. I haven't heard enough of that this year -- yet. Weather patterns can change on a dime. And we've had very rainy springs some years. So who knows what's to follow, this year.

Here's my sixth weekly quilt -- 6/52.2009 ~ Abstraction. The front/top of this piece is entirely digital images, two actually. The strips on the left side and top are the other half of the image that I used in yesterday's quilt, Discharge Series, 5. This image was printed on an old linen napkin. The larger image on the quilt above was printed on cotton/rayon, one of my favorite fabrics. It quilted really nicely, as well. Other than using the two digital images, what I did differently on this weekly piece was add machine quilting to the binding after it was hand stitched in place.
