Halloween is fast approaching!
All the ghosts and goblins are at the ready . . . all the treats have been purchased and bagged.
This quilt needs to be quilted – can’t really see that happening before Saturday. Sure would be nice to finish off . . . it’s only been in this state for three years now. I dragged it out to try and guilt myself into getting started on it, but so far things have been too busy or I’m just not guiltable any more.
I read an article the other day that the new color trend at Quilt Market this year was purple. I find myself right in the middle of working on a new quilt that just happens to have a tonne of purple in it – you can only see a little corner of it there in the photo, but really there is heaps of purple in this quilt!
The binding and backing fabric arrived for the quilt I’m making for a Christmas gift – so now it is ready for machine quilting as well. So that is a Halloween quilt and a Christmas quilt that need done – good luck to me!
Oh, this book arrived from Amazon the other day and I’m finding it just a little too interesting. My husband can’t understand the appeal of little quilt blocks and how that could be anywhere near as absorbing as I can make it. I highly recommend this book for anyone who loves the intricacies of block construction – this most definitely gets a 10 out of 10 rating from me. Ah! No wonder I’m not getting anything done . . .
‘til next time,
