Oh sew busy….

It is crazy busy in our house these days:

  • one out of town dance competition completed
  • visit from BIL
  • Visit from niece
  • Grandma visiting
  • #1 son moved back home from university
  • deep in the second dance competition, in town
  • weather is miserable with snow showers
  • son gets wisdom teeth out
  • 3rd out of town dance competition next week

are you tired yet, I am exhausted!

Not much sewing being done with this crazy schedule, but I did manage to finally get this quilt finished.



This quilt was started back in the fall, taking inspiration from the falling leaves.  I used up all my brown, green, cheddar and brick red scraps to make the crumb squares.  I played and played with the layout until I came up with this.  I stippled around the cheddar borders, and stitched in the ditch around each block. the larger crumb blocks I stitched crazy straight lines (oops didn’t take a close up of that).  I free motioned a vine of leaves in the brown border.

This project was very liberating and something really outside what I usually do.  I think I will have to make  another one.
