I love when the weather gets cooler and the leaves start turning colors and begin to fall, it is one of my favorite times of the year. It gets busy with the holidays but there always seems to be more time to sit down and stitch. I am ready to design something new, something with many pieces. I’m going to use a bolt of cheddar along with a 21 pound bag of my scraps, and yes that is a lot of scraps.
I just finished my Temacula block of the week, I did not add the final two borders because right now it is the perfect size for a baby quilt and our family is expecting a new grandchild in December.I also finished my sweet Surrender quilt, I changed the border and added a solid border, I just thought it framed the quilt. It is a small quilt for me, I think it measures around 70 x 75. I keep trying to tell myself to think smaller as I have so many full size quilts already in my collection.
I’m also currently working on a variety of embroidery projects. When I first started quilting, I love doing embroidery, used to go to red work club and everything. I stopped doing it because it really bothered my hands with the MS and all of a sudden this past year I was able to pick it up again. I think my daughter and I have five or six different projects going at one time.
Enjoy the beautiful fall weather today, will be posting more pictures soon. Happy quilting,
