A gentle breeze

It wasn’t too hot today – only 98 degrees Fahrenheit. We had a slight Delta breeze so the air conditioner did not work too hard. The house fan maintained a pleasant temperature. When San Francisco and the Bay Area are foggy in the morning, the cool air comes right up the river and kisses our island.

Speaking of breezes and fans; today’s block is a fan. The block combines paper piecing and appliqué.

Hmph. You got me with that one. I read the title "A gentle breeze" in my RSS reader, and thought "How in the world is she going to quilt a breeze?!"

A fan. I should have known you'd find a way.

I agree with Vicky - too hot up here - hopefully it will cool down a bit so we wimps won't be so whiney. I remember those soft delta breezes from when we lived in CA - ahhh delightful weather, and delightful fan - I love fan blocks.
