Autumn Rains

Yesterday it was gloomy and cloudy with a gentle drizzle for most of the day. Generally a blah kind of day for many things, but a good day for the trees and bushes which need water before going into their winter dormancy. It was also a great day for sewing! Don's been gone for a few days on a golf trip and I only had Lily for a few hours in the morning so I spent my afternoon and evening at the machine.

Lily said she doesn't like her Nemo quilt anymore :( and wants another one. I found the white with colored flowers fabric in my stash and decided to make "Disappearing Four Patch" blocks for her. I got the idea here: They are a little time consuming to make since you have to cut, sew, cut again and sew again, but I like how they come out. I also like working with these brights--especially on a gloomy, rainy day. :)

Don't forget to leave a comment here if you want a chance to win the Traveling Stash. I doubt that you'll be disappointed if you win it! It's got some very good stuff in it. You can leave your comment anytime before Saturday, the 24th if you want to be in the drawing. You simply have to have an active blog, be willing to replace what you take with comparable goods, and be willing to send the box along to the next winner. EASY!


  1. Barb, I love the blocks for Lilly's new quilt. My granddaughter told me almost the same thing, but she felt she was getting too big for her very hungry caterpillar quilt. I would love to be the next recipient of the traveling stash. I have some great stuff to add to it. Robin
