Fall arrived last Saturday according to the calendar and it didn’t take long for the trees to dress up appropriately. The photos in my new header are from my afternoon walk. I think all this fall colour is earlier than usual here in Iowa due to the stress from the drought. It is awfully pretty though. There seems to be greater variety in the shades of yellow, orange and red than usual.
There’s a touch of fall in the sewing room too. I’m still working on those drunkard’s path blocks in rich fall fabrics. I completed 20 and rearranged them on the design wall. Yesterday I added this leaf block to the mix. I then decided that I really want the finished quilt to be a bit bigger so today I cut fabric for 20 more drunkard’s paths. It sounds like more than “a bit” but it just adds a row of blocks all the way around. I’m getting to the bottom of the bin of fall-themed and fall-coloured fabric stash, so I’m not sure what I’m going to do for borders
Tonight I’m going to go curl up on the couch to quilt on Whimsy. I am hoping to make enough progress on it that I can update my progress chart and actually notice a change!
