Charley Harper stars...........

I had a very busy day yesterday but I needed to sew something last night.  Since the Charley Harper fabrics were already pressed I cut the squares and triangles and made 3 blocks.  I have 13 blocks for this quilt now.  They are 9" so I probably need either 48 or 63 blocks depending on how large of a throw quilt I want to make.

Here are some of the smaller prints in the other Charley Harper line that I mentioned yesterday.  His designs are printed on Organic Cotton and were $16.50 a yard when I bought the first line.  The price might be the reason a lot of quilt shops don't carry the fabric.  I buy all of mine online.
This is another Swamp Milkweed a/k/a Butterfly Weed at the opposite end of the garden from the one I showed with 3 caterpillars on Tuesday.  There was just this one caterpillar on this one.

I have volunteer Rose of Sharon bushes all along the north side of my garage.  Here are 2 different shades of pink growing side by side.

More baking to do today.  Yesterday was pumpkin muffins and shortbread cookies.  Today is Frosted Creams.  I am shortening my oldest granddaughter's dress for her sister's wedding today too in addition to more cleaning.  The bonus in all of this?  I get to see my whole family together at the wedding and my house will be clean too.

How exciting Wanda. It always means so much to have the entire family together, and, is usually difficult to do. Hopefully, you will be able to post a few pictures of you and family. With all the baking and cleaning you are doing, you'll need a day of R&R when it's all over, but all the memories will make it worthwhile.

What an ambitious person you are! Cleaning, cooking, helpful sewing! I hope there is some time on the sofa with feet up in there somewhere.

I love your Charlie Harper fabrics. I have not been able to find them locally or on line. Do you have a link to your on line provider that you could share? Thanks!

Charlie Harper's prints tells me, he loves nature. I especially like his birds. You are doing a lot for your granddaughters wedding. Try not to overdo now. Easy for me to say, I know.

Rose of Sharon bushes are a favourite of mine, I love the pink of yours.
