Many hours were spent in the garden last week, weeding, deadheading, removing plants, turning compost and picking veggies. The garden is showing signs of an early fall and I'm okay with that. This gardener is ready for a rest.
As summer comes closer to an end, so does the Veranda Views BOM. I have now completed the last stitchery block, Enjoy the View. It's time to select fabric to frame my blocks, as the instructions for filler blocks and cornerstones will soon be posted.
I also prepared the next two Autumn POTC blocks, but only had time to piece together one. This one I call, Autumn Sky. Nothing like a brilliant blue sky and bright fall leaves.
Yes, I have many things on the go already and lots of patterns waiting to be made, but I came across a pattern by Corliss Searcey of Threadbear and well, you know the rest. So, last week, I ordered some background fabric and eagerly await its arrival. In the meantime, I will start preparing my templates for the first couple of blocks. I must be strong and remember that this is not the only project I have on the go. For those interested, Lizzie has started a blog called, The Civil War Bride Quilt.Until next week.....happy quilting!
