Autumn is here



I haven't sewn all week, so nothing new to show here. These were lottery blocks I won at guild a few years ago. Makes a cute little table runner I think.

I did manage to do some applique today during the Bears game (GO BEARS!). I also refolded a lot of fabric -- I have one deep shelf in my cabinet done -- 5 large stacks in the back and 4 smaller stacks in the front of the shelf -- still working out the details of how I'm going to arrange them. I also have a rubbermaid container about 3/4 full of scraps -- these are anything smaller than a fat eighth, or thereabouts. Some pieces have had angles cut out of them, and some have had applique pieces cut from them. I was getting pretty tired of the old scraps and strips, so these will breathe new life into my scrap quilts, hopefully.

And, I managed to cut the background fabric for the leaf blocks for the One Hour Quilt.

All in all, a pretty good day I think.

Gratitudes:

  • Meatloaf and acorn squash for dinner.
  • Bears won!
  • A nice, quiet afternoon.
  • Playing with fabric and rediscovering what I have stashed in the stash!

A very nice quilt -- the border fabric is just right for the blocks.

That is a very nice table runner, and so appropriate for the season!

I love the quilt. There was some good football over the weekend. Team efforts: folding fabric and football!!! Great combination.

A fall table runner is a good idea. I think I should make some fall quilts for my home - but not this year :-)
