Last Bloom of Summer


Bloom
A summer applique ready for quilting.

 

Building Houses
A house for August and September.


Autumn Aster
Popping up in the garden just in time for fall.

It seems fall has arrived  a week early and when I feel a chill in the air, comfort food comes to mind.  So, I made some Indian Pudding, served warm, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.   

Now, it's time to work on some fall projects and I have two things in mind, my Hocuspocusville stitchery blocks and finishing my Shades of Autumn, POTC quilt top.

Until next time.....happy quilting!

Your Bloom quilt is lovely - as winter approaches it will remind you of lovely long summer days.I haven't heard of Indian pudding but it sounds like you enjoyed it!

Your bloom quilt is beautiful! Now that I've caught up on other sewing I will get back to hexagons, I have missed them. Thanks for giving me something beautiful to study and admire.

Love the little bloom quilt, Karen!
And your little houses look so pretty and ready to join the other ones on the "block" for a quilt. Have a great rest of the weekend! Carol

What a lovely quilt, Karen, your Summer quilt. The colours are so bright and cheerful. Your houses are fun also. I don't know the puddung, but it sounds yammy!
Have a nice day, Cisca

Your summer bloom looks so beautiful. Is it to be handquilted? Well, I know I don't have to ask. LOL

Your houses are ever so pretty, the quilt will be so gorgeous, looking forward seeing all the houses together.

Will we soon see a Hocuspocusville stitchery block????
and your POTC quilt top, how exciting.

What is Indian Pudding, I can imagine: apples, curry, cinnamon. Am I way out?????
