I had a few feed sack scraps that I wanted to use up in a wall hanging. I picked out a gray fabric that I had laying around. I liked it when I laid the little feed sack fabrics against it, but somehow when sewing it together… it started to look nothing of what I thought it would.
Then it hit me that black would really pop those blocks out as they all just ran into each other. Here is the finished top, that I’m much happier with.
Three F’s … if I was in school ,I don’t think I would have gone home to Mom. 😳 Today though those three F’s are all positive even if one of those words are failure.
I’ll start with fall first. I know that up north a lot of y’all are having snow and cold temps,here in the south we are just getting through the fall that was surprisingly pretty for the south. I’ll show you then let you decide… just promise not to compare it to the New England States.😀
It is also time for Camellias to start blooming..
The hard frost didn’t kill the Gerber daisies up against the house
The quilt covers 11,390 square feet, a faithful reproduction of the state of North Dakota with every county a different color. Volunteers from 53 North Dakota counties helped stitch the quilt. It was the largest in the world until the AIDS quilt came along; now it’s known as the world’s largest historical quilt.
Leona Tennyson was responsible for putting it together with a measurement 85 ft. by 134 ft.
Now for the update on the lovely old log cabin…
Here is where I was last time ….
I had just rolled working on the first block to your right. I am a very short armed person so with the roll getting larger that I have to put my arm under while working with the other arm on top , I can no longer work a whole block. I just did the lower half all the way across , reaching the last block on this set of blocks.
last block that I’m working on
I did get a quilt that I had finished quilting in 2015 bond!😱
looks nice on my bed.
That’s it for me this round! Hope all enjoyed their Thanksgiving day.
