My Life, New Pattern Sample

Fall, Shmall….

Am I the only one on this planet that doesn’t like fall???

I hate winter,

so fall just seems like a precursor each year

that I cannot joyfully wrap my head around.

Fortunately with this pandemic

I’ve not been bombarded with it since July 5th.

I’ve been harbored here for what seems like forever in one instance,

then not so much the next.

It’s been EXACTLY 6 months TODAY

I’ve been quarantining in my abode.

How can that be?

I calculate I’ve walked approximately 450 miles!

(really it’s the same 2.5 miles every day, lol.)

The exception is a handful of really humid or rainy days

that I wimped out

and decided to walk inside on our treadmill.

I did put away my summer door decoration last week

& put up my pretty fall door wreath.

Writing the instructions for the new basket quilt pattern

I decided to make a basket block to double check my dimensions.

I used this awesome buffalo gingham check

to make the basket.

Since I already had 1 gold Tiny Dresden plate

hanging out with nowhere to go

it seemed like the perfect opportunity

to use it and make just 1 more.

Well, or course it added a fall feel right away don’t you think?

Now I want to make more!

Instructions are about finished.

Hopefully Tamara will have my top quilted soon.

I cannot wait!

Are you a fall person or are you like me?

Applique quilt projects, Dresden Plate Quilt, New Quilt pattern sample

Laborious Labor Day 2020

Carnivals canceled, large groups not allowed,

what are you doing this Labor Day Weekend?

Today I’m sewing,

making circles for my ongoing new pattern sample.

Have you seen bits of the construction already,

perhaps on FB or IG?

I’m mostly using Cider by Basic Grey for Moda.

 

So far I’ve made all the baskets.

The stripe fabric is the only non Cider fabric.

Next I made the pile of petals into plates!

So this afternoon it’s on to center circles.

The Apliquick Bars are my best friends for making

perfect applique shapes with freezer paper!!!

You can find all my favorite notions on my website here,

including the Apliquick Bars.

The leaves were snap to make too.

I’m ready to finish the blocks!

Can’t wait to see the finished quilt, can you?

Just Keep Sewing…
