Anael....liking your BD so far. I didn't realize how detailed that pattern really is. Your colorway really shows that.

Cool flea market quilt. She did somebody on scrappy look. Thanks for sharing!

Those sure are pretty!

Summer is finally winding down and I'm getting more time for sewing, though I'll be spending quite a bit of time the next day or too on the roof -that project is almost done too.

I went through my fabric selection and pulled out all the big prints, they don't work so well for smaller peiced blocks like this -sometimes they muddle teh pattern. Then I pulled out a few that just didn't seem to go as well with the rest (Had two with a lot of white and one with black, and a couple of Pinks)

Next step, I sorted them in two groups, kind of going light/dark but it ended up with orange/green and blue/purple. I'm going to use the Orange/green as the background, and the blue/purple for the design. Will be interesting to see how this plan works out.



It's 40 fat quarters, so 10 yards so it should be enough. And I can always use the large print, I'd just have to do some fussy cutting to keep the colors consistent.

I copied all the template pictures and started cutting teh first block, but now it's time to get outside and get on the roof. We are doing the front middle section (old farmhouse with several additions). It's the last part to do, and we did the tear off yesterday.

macybaby....All things bright and beautiful! But I'm also chuckling at that red Deluxe check box in the background. They don't send those durable boxes with your order any more...good thing I've kept some to hold the extra blank checks!

Yesterday was beautiful here...instead of outside I helped a cousin with some parental house cleaning. I brought home a laundry basket of beautiful linens that needed to be soaked. I have full rein on what to do with these. Last week, this gal presented a program at our quilt guild. Her FMQ done mostly on a DSM is absolutely beautiful. Little did I know I would have some items to work with. Several pillowcases to make hanger covers for my cousins and their daughters. Just thought you would enjoy.

Oh my goodness....the fabrics are beautiful and totally luscious, ladies. Anael...isn't that Lemon Balm gorgeous? And those vibrant purple/blue mix of Macybaby's...wow... Gorgeous stuff!

Good luck on the roof repair, Macybaby......I just love your farmhouse....

OK.....her FMQ'ing is a dream. So cool that you got to see her actual work. And, so sweet of you to help your family. your family is blessed to have you.

Today, I worked on prepping the house for Open House tmo....and getting ready for yard sale..also tmo.. Yikes. Tomorrow evening, I'm attending a veteran fund raiser and one of my QOV's will be presented. I'm excited since I am typically not present though I've been invited. Should be fun. Had some time today and worked on the October block for Fun on the Farm BOM. I posted a pic on the thread, if interested. I am not doing the recommended layout (lol...bet you couldn't have guessed that!). Anywhoo...Now to clean the sewing room....

Please tell me how you manage 'to have some time' with so much to do!!

Yes I love my new fabrics, specially the Lemon Balm hahahaha
No really, they're beautiful. All of them. Now to decide what quilt to make with them. I considered making another BD with an light background throughout the whole quilt and those new fabrics as focus fabrics.
