From Rosemary Wilkinson's book, Quick Quilts to Make in a Weekend came Country Comfort, a nice utility quilt perfect for big stitch quilting and homespun fabric.
What I like best about Country Comfort is the big flower template used for quilting. And, what makes it interesting is you center it over the seam of two joining blocks, instead of in the middle of each block. Now, it was pieced together in a weekend, but hand quilting it will be a whole other weekend or two.
Every fall, as the weather starts to turn I think about crocheting again, but never do. Well, this year out came my crochet books and a few balls of yarn to practice with. I started at the beginning, reviewed all the basic stitches and was surprised how much I remembered.
Deciding what to crochet is proving to be difficult, as I would like to use up the odd balls of yarn I have around the house first. How easy it would be to just pick a pattern and head off to the yarn shop, but I'll try not to do that.
In the meantime, I have been happily working on one of my Hocuspocusville stitchery blocks and joining together my Shades of Autumn, POTC blocks, which is looking pretty good, but very slow going. So, it looks like my fall project will continue right into winter, if need be, to finish it.
Until next time.....happy quilting!
