2016 Aurifil September block

Here is my version of the Aurifil block for September, Into the Blue designed by Katarina Roccella. It is perfectly acceptable with a few fall leaves for decoration.

Happy quilting!

Long neglected blog...

My blog has been sadly neglected the last few months. I will try to change that and write blog posts more regularly.

In my last post I promised to show off my Modern HST Sampler blocks. These are the 17 blocks that are published so far. Thanks to Alyce of Blossom Heart Quilts for organizing this skill building QAL.

I am using an aqua/grey solid together with the full range of Good Neighbors fabric by Amanda Jean Nyberg of Crazy Mom Quilts. Only seven more blocks to make!

With all the more or less complicated blocks I am making this year, I just needed a simple patchwork project to "relax" with. I have a few fabric bundles I will make charity quilts with, and here is one of them. This one contained a few panels, so I just cut  6 1/2" squares and will sew the blocks together to make a quick charity quilt.

The fall is so pretty now: this is a picture taken by my son. Look at those yellow and green leaves against the blue concrete wall; I love the colors of September!

Keep on quilting!
