Crown of Thorns
Frivol #7 by Primitive Gatherings
Songbird Gatherings Fabric
Slowly, ever so slowly I am making progress on the Crown of Thorns quilt. The official date for fall is September 22 (that was almost a month ago). With temps still in the high 80's it does not feel like fall! There is no color, it is hotter than Hades, it is very dry and brown and ugly! With all the beautiful colors, cooler temps, soups, sweaters and decorations fall is one of my favorite seasons. I am blaming my lack of progress on my projects on the hot weather!
Whew! I made a huge error on the Crown of Thorns quilt and am so glad I purchased extra fabric--I am sure going to need it to compensate for my mistake.
Grant House1865 Sampler
Chessie and Me
30 count Confederate Gray linen
Chessie and Me released this design at the Nashville Needlework Market in March 2016. It is a smallish sampler and will go great with my patriotic quilts. At the top of the sampler there is this great eagle and the words Preserve the Union. I really like the way Linda incorporated the date into the grass.
Stacy Nash Primitives
Country Sampler--Schoolgirl Sampler Spring Sewing Bag
I have fallen behind, way behind on the club projects. While Stacy calls this a spring sewing bag, I have changed the linen colors and fibers to match some homespun and rick rack I had in my stash.
My finishing fabric is more fall like than spring like and I changed some of the fibers to better match the finishing fabric.
The weather man is forecasting a significant drop in temps for the weekend. Bring it on! Maybe the cooler temps is the motivation I need to get myself in gear and get some of these projects finished.
