A new scrappy "background" project ...

... this one is from Nickel Quilts by Pat Speth.   I'm aiming for just one (easy!) block a day -- slow and steady.  I'll share progress with my Stash Report
each week.

This week I'm working on an October-ish project.  The pieces are template-cut with odd angles, but they are fairly large and are going together easily.

I decided to do this one instead of the Betsy Chutchian Halloween quilt I was considering last week.  The pattern comes from this book.  I'm planning to use the striped fabric as the border.

Oak Grove

I still haven't settled my mind on a new direction for quilting, but last week while I was cleaning I came across this dormant project.

A new oak tree grew today!  These are 18" blocks, so approximately 25" on point.

Each block takes hours of mindful sewing.  It will be a long while before I have the entire forest done.
