Last Friday, I went with a couple of friends to a quilt show put on by the Ft. Collins Modern Quilt Guild. I shared one quilt photo over the weekend, but saved a couple more for today. I thought this one at the entrance to the show was really stunning!

I Like Thursday #339
I love the flow of color in this quilt!
The blocks were paper-pieced to make the strip triangles within the squares.
A few were full squares.
I could gave taken a ton more photos, but I just took one more of this crumb quilt. We could vote for our favorite, and this one got my vote.
All those tiny crumb blocks - I just love them!
These were not sewn by color - they had all the colors.
We thought the pink sashing was interesting - I probably wouldn't use that in a quilt of my own, but it did seem to bring out some of the other colors quite a bit.
Here's the label for the quilt.
I read a book this week that I just loved! It's my book club's July pick for discussion, and I think it's another good one for us. The really interesting thing about this book is that it's set in a time and place I really knew nothing about - Iran in the 1950s. There is a current day storyline, too, that eventually connects all the different parts together.
And, to continue this month's I Like Thursday theme, a favorite ice cream memory of growing up is that we sometimes made our own ice cream! My family went camping a lot and this was a fun thing to do while camping. I say fun now, but I do remember it was hard work! It took a lot of muscle to crank that thing, because of course there was no electricity when we were tent camping! The homemade ice cream was pretty tasty, though.
I picked this photo off of Google because I'm pretty sure our ice cream maker looked something like this. My dad bought everything at Sears, so I'm sure the one we owned came from Sears.
We never had much rain in April - you know, like "April Showers bring May Flowers," but May and this first week of June have been very wet in Colorado. So it brought June flowers!
