I can't think of a clever title for this post -- it is what it is.
I belong to The Applique Society, a quilting club that meets once a month in the Springfield Public Library -- a gorgeous facility. Because there is no charge for the meeting room, we decided to make a quilt for them to hang on the wall -- there's lots of empty space. We are each supposed to make one appliqued square with a motif that has something to do with libraries, books, or reading. I couldn't decide on a single theme, so I made these three blocks.
At least it kept my mind off the weather. This is the first heat wave like this since we've been in Missouri and it's only June. I hope the rest of summer is milder.
