The three quilts I've been working on for the Hurricane Sandy survivors are complete! I was boxing them up last night and realized - I need a bigger box. And then I decided to start another quilt to add to the number. I got it cut and the individual blocks assembled last night. Maybe I can get them put together tonight. We'll see
This is the latest one I finished for that project. It is Bonnie Hunter's free Trip Around the World pattern. It was easy and went together pretty quickly, but not nearly as quick for me as it was for her. I don't know. Sometimes my brain kind of jumps the track with instructions. Anyway, I did finally finish it and it turned out pretty well, I think.
Here's a look at the backing. I hung the quilt on the chicken yard fence to take pictures and of course the gate was closed. Hetty was NOT happy. She wanted to get out and kept bumping into the gate. Funny chicken.
We don't get a lot of fall color here usually, but I was struck the other day by how pretty these vines on our neighbors' house are. I missed getting them photographed before the wind blew a lot of the leaves off, but they're still mighty pretty.
If you're looking at this post on my web page, you may notice that I've added a button on the right side for Bonnie Hunter's Easy Street Mystery. I've never done a mystery quilt, never had a desire to do one, but I thought I would try this one. The above blocks are my first step. I really hope I like it, but they could always morph into something else. (That is something that happens in my sewing room a LOT!)
I am so behind in posting. I really have no excuse except the general busy-ness of life. I'll try to do better!
I do hope you're finding plenty to keep yourself busy!
Hugs and kisses,
