We rarely get rain around here in the summer so it was strange to have thunder and lightning a couple of days ago.
One of my favorite quilt patterns is Streak of Lightning. I have an old family quilt top from 1885 in this design. If you click on the picture below it will take you to a closer view of some individual blocks and a bit of information.
I made one single lightning streak block to celebrate the storm and the freshness after the rain.
