Summer Stash Challenge Blocks Done

It's been very hot here in St. George, Utah. Today the temperature reached 109 degrees. Last summer when it got this hot in July I found myself pacing the halls of my house, looking for escape. This year I've decided to distract myself with some great quilt projects and books on tape. It's OK to stay indoors all day because I have something fun to work on. When I used to live up North and the winter days were filled with snow, there were many times I was house bound. Here, the season to hibernate is switched.
My project for today was to finish the 16 blocks needed to make my Summer Stash Challenge.

All done!

Tomorrow's goal will be to put them in the right order and then sew them together. I'm still trying to decide if I want to add borders. I'll think about that tomorrow, too.
Now it's time to go take a dip in the pool.
It's so beautiful to swim under the stars.
My husband wants me to join him along with "Bruce and Wayne" the bats, who fly past our heads every evening at dusk. ahh.. life in the desert.

Wow Nedra this is stunning. Really. I love it. I'm not sure I'd even border it. You'll know tomorrow what you want to do with it though. What a great great stash project. Sometimes weather is a great excuse not to go out at all. And the swimming sounds fab.
