Here it is, Monday again, and almost the last week in August. How did that happen so fast? Where did the summer go. and why do summers always fly by so much faster than winters? (sigh)
I have a couple of things on my design walls. Avery's Truck quilt is about 3/4 finished, or at least the center of it is. I have a couple of ideas floating around in my head for borders, but they haven't quite jelled yet.
I discovered something about some of the fabrics in the quilt yesterday while I was sewing with them. The truck fabrics are done by someone in Australia. There are signs on the fabric that are warnings for kangaroo crossings. LOL!! We have deer and moose warning signs, but I'd never even thought about kangaroo crossings. So that puts an added layer of fun to these fabrics.
Then the other thing that I've been working on is some of the Great Granny squares.
I'm using the fabrics that I picked up at the fabric party I went to a few weeks ago, plus some of my own that work well with them. They are totally outside the style of fabric I tend to use, as well as outside the colours I usually put together, so it has been a challenge, but also a lot of fun. I'm not sure, at this point, where this is going, or how many of them I will end up with. I think I have 2 more blocks laid out, and ready to sew. They actually go together quite quickly. I am loving the look of the charcoal grey as a background colour. It really make the rest of the colours stand out. I suspect there will be more of this particular colour in my future fabric acquisition.
We have some errands we have to run today, and then I have to get my August UFO finished and of the machine. I have 3 wall hangings for customers that have a deadline for the first week in September. So, I'd best get off the computer and moving, or it will not all get done. I'm linking up, as usual, to Judy's Patchwork Times
