Granny Long Legs from Sew Preeti Quilts

Once upon a time, very long ago, when I was a brand new quilter, I came across the Disappearing 9-Patch Quilt Pattern. Sewing a 9-patch block and then cutting it into quarters for FOUR blocks was mind-blowing. 

Sewing first and cutting later was truly fascinating. It also meant less sewing, easier piecing and improved accuracy. This was a Win, Win, Win!!! Except for one small problem - it created a mindset. I am forever looking to simplify patterns such that I sew first and cut later.

Meet Granny Long Legs - completely strip-pieced.

STARGAZERS IN THE GARDEN from Kwilty Pleasures

It's a gem in the heart of Columbus OH.

The gardens are full of beauty and perfect backdrops.

This summer the grounds host a Topiary Takover!
  UNESCO Natural Heritage Sites, inspired the animal topiaries. 
All designs, constructed and grown by the FCP Staff!

STARGAZING WITH ZEN CHIC from Kwilty Pleasures

Sitting here with COVID...
I tried to do all the right things, shots, booster, 
social distance, mask, hand sanitizer, no family gatherings,
hunkering down til my legs hurt...


I became complacent about wearing my mask outside of my home.
I became to comfortable in large crowds 
with ushering in theatres and at outdoor venues,
with NO MASKS on my face!

But tonight I share with you something beautiful....

Franklin Park Conservatory always has a great display of Pumpkins. 
The Pumpkins Aglow  is a lighted tour at night. 
I made it to the day light version with my Pumpkin Quilt I made in 2018.

They say a picture is worth a thousands words…

Hope your pumpkins were aglow…too!

FROGGY KINDA DAY! from Kwilty Pleasures

I love Quilts in the Wild...
especially mine!

Dawes Arboretum near Newark, OH is a beautiful garden.

And they happen to have frogs, dancing in the park!

Frogs practicing mediation by the water.

Frogs tending to the garden plants.

I could hear some blue grass music!

And who doesn't like a game of LEAP FROG?

But I had the most fun...finding the photo opps for my 
Wonky Crosses quilt made with Zen Chic COMMA fabrics

Sew...if you think you might want to enjoy the great outdoors...
