A really good day..........

By noon yesterday I had 6 more blocks completed to go with the 10 from yesterday.  I moved them down to the basement on the same design wall as my warm blocks.


From the time I started making them I knew I wanted to try some of the deep pink blocks mixed in like flowers.












I continued sewing and completed all 27 blocks and the 27 duplicate blocks while I watched some "Bones" episodes on Netflix.











I took out the deep pink blocks and put  all 17 blocks up on the wall.  I need to chose 5 more pairs of fabrics to complete the 63 blocks.








I even got all of the leftovers trimmed into straight strips.  It was so hot and humid out that staying in and sewing was the only sensible thing to do.

I love watching your progress on these blocks. You could end up with a very Christmas like quilt! I LOVE Bones... great show!

Some days a girl just has to sew and stay busy that way. Looks like you are having fun. Chris

Lots of progress in the heat! I like the pink in the green, but maybe as stars, so they really look like flowers????

I love the idea of the pink in the green, Wanda. You really can say they are flowers. A green bush with flowers. A pink rose bush?

love the blocks and the colors you are using.
Never got into the Bones show I guess the main character is too different from the one in the books which I read first and that spoiled it for me. I might need to give it another try as it has now been a long time since I read the books.

love the variety you have going on and yes, sewing is perfectly sensible on a hot humid day - or any other for that matter.

What a great sewing/playing day you had! You know how to beat the heat. I love the green.

This is like a puzzle guessing where the next piece will fit in. Much fun to watch it grow.

I love the pink mixed in with the green! Made me think of peonies.

After watching the beautiful blue 16 patch evolve I decided to do a beige/cream, browns and greys for my neice who is getting married in Jan. Those are her color choices and I have found almost 20 so far in batiks-need more greys. I love all of yours and your directions were great.

Another day of this horrible heat and then the front comes through and cools us off a bit. It is great weather to stay indoors and sew. Tomorrow is my day to do just that. At least today had a bit of rain this afternoon.
