Fall is my favorite time of the year. Well, it used to be my favorite time of the year when I lived in the part of the country that had fall. Around here (Florida) we are ecstatic because the mornings are maybe a tiny bit less humid than usual -- so that must mean fall!
I don't like August or September much either. This year was no exception and I'm thrilled that August is over and September is moving right along.
Aside from back to school (which as a teacher means back to work for me) way back around August 3rd or so, there is also constantly monitoring the tropics (to an almost ridiculous obsession), whining because I'm over the heat and tired of thinking of things to make for dinner, I have been busy at the sewing machine.
We just received the McKenna Ryan Beach Walk patterns and fabrics in at the quilt shop. The fabrics are absolutely beautiful. The quilt shop is going to be running it as a block of the month pattern and I've been racing along trying to finish up a shop sample as soon as possible.
I've made a few McKenna projects before but this one??? Holy cow! The pieces . . .the size . . .the number of fabrics . . . .the endless tracing . . . .
So far three blocks finished (and that is after many, many hours). Pretty though, aren't they?
These still have to be quilted, embellished and then the whole thing assembled.
And you want this sample quilt when??????
More projects in the works.
Hope you are enjoying fall!
