An outside day.......

Yesterday was an unusually warm day, mid 60s so I got the wheelbarrow out and took 4 trips with my porch and garage pots to the back garden and dumped them.  I have the pots drying out in the garage and I'll stack them today for storage for the winter.  Then I took off 2 screens and put on the storm windows.  I haven't brought the hose reels in yet though.  Last night I changed these flannel blocks over to the on point setting like the diagram I showed a couple days ago.  I need to choose a fabric for setting triangles and I think it will get at least one border.  I see a couple squares I want to move to a different position now that I see it on the computer.

My pots were all dumped long ago as things are starting to freeze here.
Now is when I need to get out and wrap or tie up a few things.
It's definitely the time for flannel quilts.

Looks cozy to me. We are due for a big change in weather today. Glad you were able to go out and get that done. Chris

those colors are a bit different than your normal colors you chose! We might get to freezing this week a couple nights but wouldn't be surprised if it misses us. We are going to be getting rain today though, I'm not sure once again when we got it last - we are still much lower in moisture than we should be.

This is very cozy! I love the mixture of warm and cool colours. It is much more alive looking on point. Our weather seems to follow yours by a day, so we are getting temperatures in the mid sixties today, perfect for finishing a few odds and ends outside!

It sounds like you had a fun day of work outside. I saw that you were getting the nice warm weather ahead of a moving cold front.

Some thing in the deep reds for the setting triangles?

Getting ready for the rain and snow that's predicted for overnight tonight.

I'll spend this afternoon knitting a hooded scarf for DD#2

love and hugs

Love the way you arranged the blocks on point. Brings out the beauty in each block.

I am envious of your nice weather, glad you were able to get more fall clean up complete. 6" of snow and a high of 22 degrees, here. But supposed to warm up into the 40's in a couple days... I hope, I hope.

Thanks for sharing this photo. I've been thinking about making a Christmas quilt along these lines to use up scraps but could not picture how it would look if the one patch blocks didn't all match. You answered my question - it looks great!
