August is running away from us...

We have been running...running...running... around in circles mostly :-)  That's just how it is for us in August.

I finished this FWQ block last Sunday -- and forgot to post it!  I finally figured out how to match up my seams a bit better -- and for that reason,  I feel quite satisfied with the time I spent on this block.  I've been looking at alot of blocks in the flickr pool that use the red/aqua combination -- so I thought I would give it a try.  I like it -- and Sofia even complimented it -- but I'm not sure if I will be using this block in "the quilt".  I am getting a "kitchen" vibe from it.  But, as I go along maybe I will make a few more blocks with that kind of vibe and it will "belong". 

I used  Lori Holt's easy square in a square tutorial.  I don't know what I would do without her help.  She has a few more tutorials that I haven't followed -- so I'm still in the "safe zone".  I'm hoping she'll do a few more -- hint hint... The one I would like to see is: Block #59 Night & Day.  That block is totally made from triangles and other odd shapes.  I'm leaving that one for way know, just in case she's listening and doesn't want me to suffer through it all by myself. :-)

And, now, we're running off to Friday... :-)  


  1. LOVE the square. Your work looks pretty professional to me. Can't wait to see it all put together.

    Hugs to all!



Thanks for taking the time to leave a response. We really love hearing from you! :)
