Goings On...

It's been a strange week. The calendar and the school buses say Fall, but it's sure felt like Summer. For me, it's been a week of finishing some things up and starting some new ones. Do you remember the little quilt I made on retreat a month ago? It's all quilted and bound!


Last December I won a Jelly Roll of Cuzco at our STLMQG auction. I don't usually use just one line of fabric in a quilt, but this was a fun, easy project and I love how bright and colorful it is. Lots of pinks and purples - I think I'll set it aside to gift to a lucky young lady someday.


The pattern is Zipper by Thimbleblossoms. I made the small version, but you could also make the large version with just one Jelly Roll. I do have some pretty scraps left, and plan to use them in some zipper pouches.


Speaking of bright, beautiful colors, I'm also working with some Liberty of London Tana Lawns this week. As I was cutting and sipping tea, I felt very British! More to come on this little project!


The garden has passed it's peak, but Fall always seems to bring out something new. It's supposed to cool down this weekend and I hope to do some cleanup and Fall planting. Enjoy your weekend!
