Farewell August...


MATA HARI


TIME WARP

My 8 block round up for August.

I'm Jumping ahead on a fun new project...

Barb Vedder of Fun with Barb is hosting a wonderful new Swap.
Participants are making and trading Red Broken Dishes blocks.
It's a favorite block pattern of mine and I LOVE Red quilts!
So of course I rushed over and gleefully signed up for this exchange.

I've got 160 HST's pieced and ready for pressing.
These are for the first 40 Broken Dishes blocks.
I will be making 80 blocks for the swap, using reproduction red prints against a natural cotton muslin. (more pictures coming soon)

I'm looking forward to September...
Apple season and cooler temperatures for open windows & outdoor stitching.

every quilt tells a story...

  17. I was very tempted to join in on Barb's swap, but I am too swamped with other things right now. I'll be cheering everyone else on with those HST's! Love your Dutch Treat blocks--so pretty!

  18. You aren't the only one who has mentioned that they looked forward to September. I used to when I was a child as I loved school. But these days not so much. To me it means that winter is not far behind. And here in Florida, we don't have the beautiful fall colors to enjoy in the fall. Nor apple trees! I do like to visit an apple farm where they make and sell cider and do that when we visit Ohio in the fall.
