How’s that for a title??? Before we hit the road I managed to get my blocks made for the current row in the Moda Bake Shop Trifle QAL. I did not sew them together as I wanted to contemplate the arrangement while we were gone. Do I do them mixed up or matched???
With blocks bouncing around in my mind, we headed off to Northern California for our grandson’s wedding. Since our SIL could not make the trip we took our daughter and their four little ones in our car. These were the smiles before the nearly 500 miles/ 9 hour drive. We made many stops to “stretch our legs”, but it is still a long time to be buckled in car seats.
The wedding was beautiful and the happy couple is now off on their own.
Coming home, I jumped back into the QAL. It is a very fast moving QAL with a new row coming out every other day. Mine is all done using scraps that I have.
I’m running out of design floor!!!
It's GORGEOUS!!!! I'm glad you chose to mix up those orange peel blocks - love the sparkly scrapiness of them in that quilt :) Wow - I want one just like it!ReplyDelete
I just love your choice of background settings for each row. Oh, like how you did up the strawberries (still think they look like hearts). Yes, this one is moving too fast!ReplyDelete
Love your fabric choices!ReplyDelete
