He Loves Me...


I've been playing with blocks for the last week and it's been such fun! (Although I now remember why I've only made one true sampler quilt...it takes forever to decide on the blocks, find the patterns, choose the fabrics, cut them individually...) I've made two more blocks since this picture was taken and have ten more to go. I'm going to keep them set on the diagonal, have the darker blue as sashing and a light blue with daisies from the same line as setting triangles. I'm thinking a light yellow narrow border, then the daisy fabric again as a wider border. Any leftover fabric will go on the back...I don't want to add any of this to my stash!



In spite of what the thermometer says, fall really is approaching. I'm ready! I'm itching to use my jelly roll of Harvest Boutique fabrics and I've found the perfect pattern for it...Bonnie's Playing With Jacks quilt. It's all made with 2.5" strips and I think it will look great with the fall fabrics. Thanks, Bonnie for sharing your talents with us!


I'm still trying to decide on a BOM...I've been looking around my sewing room wondering why I think I need another project! Maybe it's time to concentrate on some others. I'm waiting for the bug guy to show up for our annual termite inspection, so maybe I'll try my hand at the longarm...I haven't touched it since before my surgery! I'm definitely going through withdrawal...especially since it's one of MY quilts on there! :o)

Your sampler will be lovely. If there really are any left over fabrics, they will be more than welcome at my house. I've been known to take in strays a time or two.

I love blue and yellow. That green thrown in just makes that quilt sing!
