I am so happy to be sitting here at my desk connecting with you after having 6 family members – my mom, her two sisters her brother and two of their spouses spend a week with us here in Virginia.
We housed the whole gang at Quiltville Inn and have had the BEST week.
My days were full from breakfast to bedtime and there really wasn’t time to blog. I’d wake up excited to head over each morning and crawl into bed after arriving home each night – and the days passed so quickly.
Aunt Gail and Uncle Tony headed back to Florida after breakfast yesterday. Today I return the rest to the airport in Charlotte. Things will be quiet for just a blink – The gals from Susan’s Retreat arrive Wednesday afternoon. Whew!
I will cat4ch you up with what we’ve done over the past week in the next couple of posts, but I wanted to get this out here because September is flying by at rapid speed.
I’ve given you a few teasers on this quilt – you’ve watched me work on Ditch Lilies as it came to be, and even helped me decide on the name (Which I love!) and now it is available in PDF pattern form for you to make too.
If you love bear paw units, blocks that chain, and log cabin blocks – this is the quilt for you!
I used one constant Juniper Green tone on tone fabric for the green in Ditch Lilies but you could use as many as you want. My oranges go from a yellow squash orange all the way to deep burnt pumpkin.
Isn’t this just perfect for fall?
We noticed so many trees starting to turn this week as we made our way from place to place. Whether we want it or not, fall is happening
