Whooping it up today - finally!!

Oh boy it's been a long while since I've had anything to whoop about. I hardly sewed a stitch in Sept.  But I"m making up for it now.  I almost have a quilt top done.  I"m making two of these, one orange and black the other orange and white.  This is Jamie's Pattern Blue Me Away done in warrior pride colors (orange and black) and the other will be orange and white.   I was so anxious to get sewing that I just sewed, I love a scrappy quilt but really didn't thing about the chubby pinwheels.  Man if they are all scrappy when you put them together they just look like a mess.  So I added a half in black border to break it up.  But hey, I was sewing and nothing was gonna stop me :)  Trying to get the first one done by next weekend which is homecoming for the mom of the two football players.   Just need to add the last border and get it quilted.  Is it crazy busy or what???

Oh and look at the vistor I had this week.  He's been hunting like crazy at our place.  He stopped to get warmed up in the sun.  Didn't mind having his picture taken at all.  But geez will ya look at his claws?  Yikes, I wouldn't want to be a small critter around here.  Look at that beautiful fall color in the background, I love fall.

Stop by Sarah's to see what everyone else is whopping about

  4. I love the colors. I get goose bumps when I see the pattern made, but I especially love your color choices! I have green and another in yellow on my list for two little special girls. I have made three so for and they come together a little quicker each time.
