These little nine patches...
...will be joined by a few more to make another one of these little quilts, but with the values reversed. I plan on making the second one the same size as the first. The blocks have been cut from scraps, and the rest are waiting to be sewn. I am starting to do a tiny bit of rotary cutting now, so I thought it should be for something tiny.
Just over 3 1/2 rows of blocks yet to piece on the barn raising.
The parts are ready on design boards, with a few extra strips leftover. Hmm, someone should make a mini quilt out of those leftovers, don't you think?
One more block got assembled on my Settler's Puzzle quilt, which I began years ago in a class with Pam Buda.
As soon as I am able to square up more units, I think this will go together quickly. The sawtooth border may slow me down, though.
In my last post I told you I would get shots of the Sandhill Cranes, and I did--in their mating dance, no less.
Wish the dead tree hadn't been in the way!
The first lilac bouquet of the season graced our dinner table Sunday. I have 16 bushes right now, but only a few of the buds have started opening yet. Can you smell them? Oh, it is heavenly!
I wanted to share something that I finally made, after drooling over the recipe for about a year now. How does Raspberry Coconut Coffee Cake sound? I hurried and snatched a photo of the last three pieces, before it was all gone. It is always a nice surprise when a gluten free recipe is yummy enough to share without apologizing for the gritty texture, or starchy mouth feel.
The first blogger I ever met IRL was Mary, on one of her trips to Utah. Well, last week Mary stopped on her way to a quilt event with friends. She spent the night at our home and was a patient listener, as I talked her ear off! Here we are in front of my design wall. Thanks for the visit, Mary. Next time I'll let you talk. :)
I just realized
that this week is the 7th anniversary of my blog (this Friday, to be exact). Stay tuned.
Until next time,
