It is hard to believe that Thanksgiving arrived. It has been such a strange and unwelcomed year, but it has helped us to count our blessings. We have found blessings in simple things this year, things we generally take for granted. We have found time to explore new avenues, some because we wanted to and others because we had to do so. Now we head into the Christmas season and the putting of 2020 to bed once and for all.
My latest adventure in my creative world has been working on a quilt filled with luscious Kaffe Fasset fabrics. I was so inspired by an Escher quilt that Ramona made and knew I had to tackle a similar project myself. The geometric design is right up my alley. This is a quilt that could go very wrong VERY QUICKLY, but my first four rows have gone together well. I love it. The depth of the interlocking cubes is fascinating to me.
This one is called Escher Cubed and it is constructed using 60* triangle pieces (with y-seams) in proper color combinations.
I also finished my fall quilt that was this year's Autumn Jubilee quilt from Carole at From My Carolina Home. I believe it is still a free pattern. We have been enjoying it throughout the season and look forward to decorating with it for many more years. I quilted it using Dream Wool batting so it has a marvelous texture to the quilting.
Our Gridster Bee block for the month of December is for a feather block. I love the block even though I did have some issues with printing it out. My first one ended up being a smidge too small so I have one to keep for myself! It is a free download from Zen Chic.
As the weather has turned a bit more fall-ish here, I have had requests for some flannel nightgowns from the granddaughters. I used my ruffler attachment on my Singer 201 and just loved how it did the ruffling so perfectly.
