an autumn baby swoon from block-a-day

Every year I am ready for autumn much sooner than it is ready for me.

It’s the cherry tree’s fault.  Come February it is frantically dropping its yellowed leaves and by the time the autumn equinox arrives, it stands proud and bare in front of the duck house whilst all around it is still clothed in summer green.

Mein Row by Row Quilt 2018  für den 6 Köpfe 12 Blöcke Quilt Along ist fertig geworden, hängt seit heute im Geschäft hinter mir an der Wand und wir stahlen nun um die Wette ;-)


Planung und Layout 2018

Letztes Jahr hatten wir 6 Köpfe mit euch zusammen diesen Row by Row Quilt als Sew Along durchgeführt. Jeden Monat wurde ein neuer Block vorgestellt, abwechselnd mal in 6"- mal in 4" Inch. Damit es spannend blieb, wurde zwar das Layout zu Beginn verraten, welche Blöcke allerdings dann pro Monat folgen sollten, war ein gut gehütetes Geheimnis.
