I write. I quilt. I cook. I take photographs. What else is there?

Bored Me

I had these blocks....

I'd started to make a quilt, but then the whole thing bored me. No matter which idea I came up with, I wasn't happy. I think it was the choice in colors, honestly. Nothing wrong with them, but I'm so sick of blue. I inherited a ton of blue from a neighbor and I've been using it in everything since. I began with 3.5 drawers of it and am now at .75 drawers of blue. That's the buying point for me, but I just don't want to.

Anyway, I had these blocks....

After fooling around with them for over a year, trying different alternate stars and such, I finally gave up and stuck them altogether in one charity quilt. Oddly, I like it.

Pieces of Time

I've finished all the blocks,though this is a picture of just a few of them.  Now I'm deviating from the pattern (surprised, right?) and putting in sashing.  They're a darker version of the same color as the background, with cornerstones from the scraps of color used in the blocks.  I'll post a pic when that's done.  Once that's complete, it's on to the border.  Which IS from the pattern.  I'll have another one or two borders after that, too (again, not from the pattern) ... maybe.

Sunset and a Quilt

This was our sunset last night.  Stunning!!!


And this is another quilt that I forgot to show you.  I had all these blocks left from the Blue Ridge Beauty I made in 2012.  This is a twin for charity.


Thanks for Visiting! Come Back Soon!
