Dog Days with The Dawnflier (August 2015) #MFRWOrg #ASMSG #IARTG

(c)2015 by Kim Headlee.
I don't often remember to photograph my booth setup, but this time I wanted to make sure I did, since I was graciously given permission—and equipment—to display two of my antique quilts at the 2015 Patchwork Quilters Jamboree. 

The quilt on the left is a twin-size hexagonal pattern I plan to give to my daughter after she finishes college. Its colorful top was one of the last assembled by my husband's grandmother, who died in 1965, and I squared it off, added the backing, and quilted it with individual French knots made of multicolored yarn. On the right is a quilt top that's perhaps twenty years older, composed entirely of feed sack fabric, which I backed with solid cotton and turned into a patio curtain.

In spite of the presence of numerous industrial fans, as well as a smaller unit that the event organizers encouraged me to bring for my booth, I felt the Dog Days quite keenly that weekend!

With August comes the return to the classroom for my husband the high school math teacher, as well as our daughter. In fact we help her move back into her apartment in a couple of weeks. Once that emotional dust settles—and I get the house back to myself!—I look forward to returning to a much more productive writing schedule.

My next scheduled public appearance is Saturday, August 29 at Celebrate the Arts, Main Street, Tazewell, VA. In the meantime, I invite you to check out my latest release that's set in the realm of The Dragon's Dove Chronicles titled The Challenge. Also, the review tour for Liberty will be starting soon; stay tuned! And thank you very much if you are one of the bloggers who has agreed to host Liberty or any of my other books. :)

It's really too hot to write any more today, so keep cool and keep reading!
