I am working right along on my goal for this month. I may not get everything done that I planned, but I am doing ok. (grin) The weather this month has helped me out. It rained again this morning, so we can't do anything outside. No outside work equals more quilting time. Right? LOL
I went through the box of pieces that I had cut out last year for Quilter's Garden. I even made sure that I had cut all the pieces needed for each block. I did find one piece missing. Not sure if I overlooked cutting it out, or if it is hiding from me. Anyway, I am so glad that I stuck all the leftover fabric for these blocks down in the bottom of the box. I needed a dark gold 4 1/2 inch square. Whew! I had a strip just over 4 3/4 inches wide leftover. I got that cut and each block's pieces put together and labled. I already had 4 blocks together and decided to make one block a day till I get it done. Today I am ready for block#8 and it is a doozy! If I counted right, it has 61 pieces in a 12 1/2 inch block. This is block #1 called Bachelor Buttons.
Number 2 is called Star Gazer.I will show you a few more blocks next time. I think this quilt is going to turn out pretty. I haven't even picked the setting fabric yet. I may work on that this afternoon.
I wanted to share a few more pictures from our BBQ at Carolyn and Bob's. Isn't this chair fabulous? Bob's brother, Terry, made it for Carolyn. I sat in it and fell in love.(big grin) It is so comfy. I can see me sitting on the porch quilting away. Anyway, when Terry arrived, Kevin asked him if he would make one for me just like Carolyn's. He had to cut it down because Carolyn is like me and rather short. The one he made for Bob, just swamped her and me. LOL
Terry does wonderful work. I am so excited, I can hardly wait to get my new chair.
I thought you all might like to see some pictures of the deck that Carolyn and Bob just built. It is pretty big. They already had a 10X10 concrete deck on the front of the house, so they went out another 10 ft. then turned to the side with a 10X11. So it is shaped like an 'L', 10X20 ft with a 10X11 ft to the side.
Carolyn and Bob love watching birds and squirrels, so their back yard is full of birdfeeders, birdbaths, birdhouses, and squirrel feeders. Carolyn has two squirrels that visit every day. She calls them Freddie and Freddina. LOL I would call this the feeding station.Terry made this wooden feeder for them.We saw so many different kinds of birds while we were there. It is like a sactuary. I hope you can see the red cardinal in this picture. He stayed there and ate for a long time. I really enjoyed watching all the birds. There were too many people present for Freddie and Freddina to come, though. LOL
As soon as I get Harbor Town washed, I will share a picture with you. I have been quilting away in the evenings on the Disappearing Nine Patch. I drew some motifs on it with the blue washout pencil. It has been so humid that some of the lines are starting to fade, so I really want to get it done. Haven't touched Birds and Blooms or Double Delight for a week or so, but I'll get back to them. I think I had better get my Quilter's Garden block done since they are calling for storms this afternoon. I unplug my machine when it storms. So I need to get with it. Everyone have a good day. Thanks for visiting.
