Backyard Party

And onward to the To-Be-Quilted pile.

I'm getting a lot done these days.  The new studio works well.  We're looking into AC, which would make it more comfortable, but otherwise it's lovely to sew there and look out at the gardens.

Another UFO moving forward

I recently unearthed a partial set of sampler blocks.  The last time I reported working on these was almost two years ago, long before we moved. 

This week I felt inspired to piece the remaining three blocks, and to assemble the top with borders.

When it's quilted and finished, it will be added to the 'adult donation' pile.

Desert Sunset

Sunshine Guild had a sew-along over the weekend.  We all did the HORIZON quilt from Klein Meisje.

My starting point was the length of desert sunset fabric hanging on the left -- it will be my back.  I pulled appropriate-size chunks from my scrap box, choosing colors that complemented the sunset yardage.  The blocks were a flash to cut and sew.  Block placement was 'random pull'. with my only rule being 'two the same color can't touch.'

I really liked this scrapbuster a LOT.  This quilt will be donated to the Navajo Nation initiative.
