hello my dear devoted bloggers,
I am still on the look out for fall colors for photos. It's been windy here in Central Oregon (weather is changing!) and my chance for the colors is getting more limited.
I found these this weekend!
This one is a cheater--those are all deciduous pine trees which obviously don't change colors. But early this morning, the sun was just coming up behind me and I thought this was a cool picture.
Sign of the changing weather here in Bend is this little bush that had tiny beads of ice early in the morning. The temps here in the morning are in the low 30s, or even lower. We had one morning when it was 16*!
We are heading back to California this week and because the weather is obviously warmer, the fall colors are later. I'm pretty sure my Japanese Maples will be spectacular later this month.
I put away the sampler spree kid quilt and will deliver it to my small quilt group when we meet in a couple of weeks. So once again I was in the "between quilt projects" funk. I decided to pull out my purple baskets which were swapped between Wendy Reed (constantquilter), Barb Vedder (funwithbarb) and myself last May.
I struggled with the setting squares and must admit that i bought some fabric this weekend for those squares. I'm much happier with these little checks. And the border stripe, I think, is perfect. One detail in this process that I love is doing mitered corners! In case you're curious, all these purple fabrics are from Betsy Chutchian's line "Susannah's scraps". I think I could buy them all (and did order a layer cake...but that's all).
Now I just need to quilt it and it'll be amongst its sisters on my small quilt wall. I'll need a ladder hang it, though! ;-)
Now once again I'm in that between quilts stage and stumped as to what to work on--so many ufos. I'm working on my October mini little by little and did start something using scraps that I saw on a facebook page. I saw a similar quilt last night that i might opt for instead but it's pretty brainless and goes quickly.
Hope you're going to have a great week! Stay healthy and safe, my friends!
