|Autumn in Western Washington|
I saw this tree the other day and couldn't resist snapping a picture. Most of the trees haven't done much yet, but a few are in full swing. Love it!
Back during the 1st week of the month, one day I got a surprise squishy in the mail. Sweet Belinda over at Brown Dirt Cottage sent me these cute Halloween fabrics to use in the Halloween quilt I'm making. Thanks, Belinda, I love them all. Especially those skulls!
This month I was lucky enough to win the Block of the Month drawing at my local quilt guild meeting. I didn't know it at the time, but these are Antique Tile blocks. Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville had this pattern in her Addicted to Scraps column for Quiltmaker magazine in the Sept./Oct. issue. My DS has decided he likes these, so this will be one for him. I also received one extra block kit to sew up, so I think I'll let him pick which fabrics he wants for one more block, and then we'll swap out that blue block in the 3rd row. Add some borders to bring it up to a good size and voila! Another quilt top. Pretty cool!
I've managed to get in the quilt studio a number of times this week. No photos yet, but I'm making progress. Hopefully I'll have some photos for the next post.
Giggle for the day:
