playing catch up...

So, I have been a bit lax in blog posting so this is going to be another marathon farmers wife post...hope you enjoy, sorry in advance!!

week 16 : blocks #24 & #79

I have trouble using the warm colour palette so I have been trying to use the fall colour change for some inspiration. Funny thing, I didn't realize until after I made the blocks that I used the Heather Ross "matryoshka" fabric in both blocks.

week 17 : blocks #53 and #64

week 18 : blocks #34 and #46

week 19 : blocks #71 and #90

I am in love a little with these two blocks...I have a mental list going of the ones I like the best and these guys are creeping to the top. It's funny how you can love some more than others, I wonder why? hm. So after this one I am all caught up!!! yeah me!

week 20 : blocks #18 and #51

Phew, that's better now I am all caught up! I told you it would be a marathon. For week #20 I was up for a bit of a challenge so block #18 fit the bill. I have never worked with shapes other than squares or triangles so this was cool to see how different shapes came together to create triangles that could then be pieced into block and so on.

Hope everyone enjoys there weekend, James and I are off to Niagara on the Lake for a cocktail party...doesn't that sound grown up!! Oh what to wear? I always feel so uncomfortable in big girl clothes, I really just love my jeans and sweaters and scarves!! sigh, pointy uncomfortable shoes here I come...

Enjoy the blustery day everyone.

  2. your blocks look awesome! i'm definitely starting this quilt in the new year.
