Well, I am whooping it up because our lovely internet provider's new equipment update (for speed) totally put down a whole county - maybe more. Geesh!! But we are back, thankfully, as there are some real cool things coming up - and I would have been having a heart attack in not accessing photos, files, draft posts,etc...
I got all my fabrics cut in prep for the Star Surround QAL with Melissa over at Happy Quilting. I love this fabric line from CT - super fall colors, pumpkins, tree silohettes, basketweave prints, sunflowers, and burlap look textures. Not the ordinary fabrics for a star quilt, but I love the conglomerate of color and textures that sings Fall. Yes, I got a FQ bundle and two layer cakes of this, so I have lots of left overs for another fall quilt. (my cuts are different than the list as I want to make my geese the corner flip rather than the no waste method)
Two more Flower Patch blocks finished. I actually have all the other flower blocks done - they are partially finished as you need to add the rick-rack stems in before that final piecing and I need to pick up some rick-rack. Then I can finish this quilt top right up as all the other pieces are waiting to be played with. Whoop - almost there!
And I finished Morse Code. Simple straight line quilting and I love how the fun flying pigs fabric for the binding just perks this right up. Some of you asked if the dot-dash meant something - no, unless you know what NAKNA is for. Just a design, but wouldn't that be fun to do on a wallhanging - secret message? Or spell out a name?

The weather has turned cooler - Fall is in the air already. The apples are crisping with color in the orchard. And my black-eyed susans and mums are about to burst open. I know, we had a long Winter, no Spring, a week or so of Summer - now Fall! I do hope so as it is my favorite season. (oh yeah, the ragweed has also bloomed out here- achoo)
Hey - we are thinking WINTER - the Hop to get your 'Santa On' - inspiration for the Season. Oh my - there are so many wonderful new Seasonal fabric lines out there right now. Get that scribble pad and pencil out - make those lists and check them twice. There will be lots of inspiration for those projects to be done. I will be in the Aug 1st line up - what to your wondering eye will appear?
