Beautiful Fall Days on the Lake

Here are two very blue days with big cumulus clouds floating across the sky. They are much like most of days we experienced through September. This one is a calm day with strong reflections glaring off the water and sand.

Lake #67 (13"x 11")
While this one is more typical of large waves washing ashore.
Lake #68 (13"x 11')
Here's #68 laid out and pinned before the machine quilting finished it off.
The skies for both of these are the "other side" of pieces cut from a blue silk blouse with roses scattered throughout. It was given to me by a friend ... she purchased #67. That same silk was used for the prairie flower pieces I made about a year ago. They can be seen here and here.
