This Week -- Whoop!

This week (see my post of the 22nd) I made a block for our guild's president, quilted a top and resumed work on a Christmas quilt .  Which got no further :-/  Because I dragged out this tote -- yummmmm.  
In this tote, I have my collected bits and pieces of hand-dyes and not-exactly-hand-dyes but that will go with this project.  I've wanted to make a Ricky Tims' Rhapsody quilt ever since I first saw his Fire Dragon quilt.  Oooooo, it's totally DRAMA!
And I started quilting this comfort quilt that a friend made to be donated via one of the local guilds.  It may be a veteran's quilt, and with these colors, I decided to do some geometric ruler work throughout the center, with wavy designs on the borders.  More details later :-)

All of which caused Annabella to crash on top of my Kaffe Fassett quilt, zzzzzzz.

Suddenly, I'm seeing trees turning color!  And while the temps don't agree, I'm thinking autumn.  My favorite season!  What's yours?  And do you make quilts to celebrate the seasons?

Go here to see what some fab quilters have been up to:


  1. Oh, sweet Annabella! Our trees are starting to turn already, the geese are flying overhead, fall flowers are about to pop their buds, and our nights are very cool! Love the fall - colors, smells, cooler weather, vegies of the season

  2. Yay for Fall. Annabella has the right ideal.

  3. Oh, Brita, I love that comfort quilt! What a great bold design!! And yes, I'm starting to see some color in the trees here, too - I'm so ready for fall!!

  4. Fall is my favorite time of year, but Spring is a close 2nd! I just love all the warm, cozy colors. Mmmm, maybe I need to rummage through my sewing room too.
