Indian Summer

Hello Everyone,

On Friday, I began a NEW quilt project!  This one is a great beginner paper piecing project.  It is working up really quickly too.


I was able to complete these four units in about a half an hour.  They are F.U.N!




These are the fabrics that I am using.  There are 21 dark batiks and 7 light batiks.  I used to have this kitted in the shop, but it sold out really quickly. Hmmmm.... should I re-kit this one???

Yesterday, I had about an hour of free time and I made 7 more units.  Here is where I am at right now.


I really love the way this looks.  Usually earthy tones are not what I work with, most of you know that I  adore brights.  But I must say, I am really liking the colors here.  

In fact they are reminiscent of Indian summer, aren't they?  


I think making a few of these each day is totally doable.  Before I know it this quilt will be complete.  I love when that happens!!

If you are interested in this pattern you can find it in my shop by clicking here.  Currently there are no more kits available, but I might be persuaded to make more... wink, wink!  If you can't wait though, you can find ALL these batiks in the shop by clicking here.

Until Next Time...

Sitting here with 13* outside I love the name Indian Summer. The colors make me feel warm too. Another beauty.

I must be the worlds slowest quilter! I was working on a quilt for my momma yesterday. My first time sewing flying geese. The directions for this quilt are Fantastic thank goodness, but I wanted to be so very careful that the quilt turns out correctly. It took me ALL DAY, and I still don't have much to show for my efforts. I'll be back there sewing today..and still no geese finished. There are over 70 geese to stitch. Still plugging away.

Being a "brown" person, I love these colors. The pattern is very pleasing too.

Your colors would fit right in with Arizona! Maybe a gift for your mom and dad?
