Golden Harvest is really more golden then the picture shows, but you get the idea. As you can see, I did a little fussy cutting in the middle. I even fussy cut my last Dear Jane block. Pumpkin Crossing reminds me of a pumpkin patch at harvest time. When all the foliage has died and all you see is rows of pumpkins.
Fabric for my Civil War Bride quilt arrived in the mail last week. I went with Circles and Dots, from the Bonnie Blue Neutrals collection. This should make for a nice background. Block one is now prepared for hand applique and I hope to start stitching this week. My plan is to use all reproduction fabric. With that said, I know I will need to purchase some black and gray fabric and lots more green, for all the foliage.
I've also been working on Karen's Flower Garden and must confess that I didn't get as many flowers made over the summer as I hoped to. And, well I am confessing, my two miniature quilt books are still sitting on my bedside table, only a quarter read because I keep falling asleep.
And, it's time for my Tiny Baskets to come off the design wall and get stitched together. All this time has passed and I'm going with my first idea. Very simple, as not to distract from the baskets. As for my Louisa pyramids, I'm thinking table topper with an appliqued border.
Until next week.....happy quilting!
