|Autumn colors- just for fun.|
|I used red in place of yellow for the baskets in block 5. I thought it needed more contrast.|
|Marcus original color suggestions: I ran out of green, so block 6 has 'black' instead.|
Block 7 has been posted, but I won't get to that one until next week.
This week is going to be a full week of quilting! This Saturday is Bloomington Heritage Days and I will be demonstrating quilting all day at the Historical Society booth area. Over the weekend I pin-basted up the replica of the Pond Album Quilt in the BHS collection and I've been quilting it with Baptist Fans all day. I put in 8 hours on it today and it looks like I have another 20 hours of quilting to go! I usually don't wish I had a long arm quilting machine, but I actually thought about it this morning. My little Elna is doing pretty well, but she may need to be treated to a cleaning and tune-up when I'm done quilting up this Album quilt and another queen quilt for my Niece Sara's wedding which is less than two weeks away.
