Two brown album blocks--
I love brown and couldn't resist making them. For a time I debated where I was going with Rainbow Scrappy Challenge but I'm not tired of making album blocks so I'll continue them in 2016. They are like 9 patches--addictive! I'm considering other options too. Life has been hectic here, just normal life and I'm looking forward to things slowing down and being able to pull out all my blocks and sort them into prospective tops. Thank you Angela for hosting Rainbow Scrappy Challenge! Please see everyone's RSC posts at SoScrappy.
Quilt Milky Way--no
Not looking like I'll get to Milky Way this week. Its rained yesterday and today, Ken is hoping it will dry off enough we can continue harvesting corn on Monday. Today I did errands--we were out of things like light bulbs, laundry soap, hand soap. etc etc! Tonight I worked on my entries for the quilt show next weekend. While reading the guild newsletter I read that each quilt needed a label. WHAT?? Whew--not a permanent label--but one that is sewn on with the name of the quilt and the quilter. I quickly wrote on small rectangles of white fabric with my sharpie gel pen and whipped stitched them on with raw edges. Its to identify your quilt when dropping off and picking up--there is a triplicate form for each quilt and they're required to release your quilts after the show. Its been a good year for finishing quilts here. Before I thought too closely I entered 13 quilts. EGADS!!! Where was my brain??! One afternoon was spent checking for loose threads etc. 11 quilts are ready to go in white garbage bags, folded so the label is on top. Now I just have to find a packhorse to help me get them to the quilt show.
The weather is definitely like fall. Windy, wet, and damp. The leaves are falling like crazy and soon all the trees will be naked. Winter is when I finish quilts, do you have any winter goals??
