What's Up

What's up on my design wall after taking down my quarter log cabin blocks (more here about it
Is now a panel Charlie Brown the Great Pumpkin that I had bought to make the "little dudes" a Halloween quilt. 
There are 2 panels of course, just going to show one.



 I have some other fabric up there to coordinate with it, but I think I need some more. 
Now who don't need more fabric.
I think while I'm at the Springfield Missouri Quilt  Show I'll look for some coordinating fabrics or maybe some additional Halloween prints. 
Now for how to construct it? 
I have a couple pattern that I could choose from or maybe design mine own. 



Haven't decided yet on that. 
Then I had bought last year before last Halloween, a countdown calendar for the "little dudes". 


Have everything for that, bought it at the kit and so now all I need  to do is get it sewn together.

Do you see a theme going on, it's all about the "little dudes"
and Halloween
My "little dudes" are getting big, here's a cute picture of them.

My Sunday

I had a very pleasant Sunday. It started with a hike on some property we have that "The man of the place" goes deer hunting each fall. 


He went up there to check the roads, the deer stands and just to see what kind of activity has been going on around there. My task basically was just to enjoy a pleasant day in the woods.
At one spot near where "the man of the place" has his stand, there a spot
where the deer have dug it out so water would collect and created a little pond for them to drink from. 


Pretty clever animals. 
I had a good hike, enjoy the scenery, with the peace and quiet of nature.



When I came back to the house I worked on my rainbow colored scrap quilt blocks. I have this month color done for my quarter log cabin. 


Now I am all caught up for that one.


I have the pieces cut out for my railroad crossing blocks 


but I didn't have a chance to do them today.



Earlier this week I had made X's and O's  baby quilt, making my own charm pack (5 inch sq) of polka-dots and solids.
Simple "easy to make and I used one to Deb Tuckers new trimmers "corner pop".


I also finished sewing the blocks together for the Christmas Tree wall hanging using the Creative Grid Curvy and regular Log Cabin Trimmer


The pattern is one the Quilt Shop order from creative grid company that goes by the name Cut Loose Press


A GOOD SUNDAY

What's Up

Well that is a big question, what's up
Seeing how I haven't posted since before the retreat I went to.
So I will show what I did at the retreat and what I have been doing these past few days, which is this Log Cabin Christmas Tree 
wall hanging


I have the blocks completed and now it just a matter of getting them sewn together. I'll get to that tomorrow.


While at the retreat I made this baby quilt top with the disappearing 4-patch block. I had a charm pack and used some "snow" fabric
Kaufman snow is one of my favorite whites to use. It's white but not a stark, bright white, goes well with a majority of the fabric I've collected.



I started late making my blocks for RCS14
First I wasn't sure what pattern I wanted to make and then with all that was going on the first part of the year, I didn't start until July.
One quilt is using a quarter log cabin in solid colors. I made these at the retreat, have the other half to do. Same pattern just will alternate the white and color strips.



The other quilt started is this one called Railroad Crossing. Using some of my collection of reproduction prints.




Takes 36 blocks so I need 3 in each color.
I'm still working on these.


And I did get one more block done of the Nested Churn Dash.
So loving the looks of these blocks.

Well you see, even though I have been very bad about posting here this past month I have been sewing.
