Grey fabrics; sunny skies

the weather here has been absolutely gorgeous! green trees (with just a hint of fall color), blue skies and clear, crisp air. we call it "birthday weather" at our house. my birthday is next week, my twin sons the following week, and the baby of the family has a birthday in early October. half of our family birthdays are in 2 weeks' time, so it's always been known as birthday weather!


13 grey crumb blocks are done- I've got a nice little pile of these.

both of the grandbaby quilts are done- one is delivered, one is at the quilters now. i'll share more about them later. we're just 6 weeks and counting now for the first baby, and while the second baby (a girl) is due on November 15, it's in WA state. (we live in PA) BUT: the good news is we've already purchased our tickets- December 1. can't wait! (and B is already making her list of what she's going to pack. it's a big deal to be an aunt when you're 8!)


4 more granny squares to add to the pile. I'm steadily working through the blocks (hundreds and hundreds; many different blocks!) that I made last year and getting them into quilts. I'm working on updating my RSC15 tab, too. it feels good to get the blocks out of drawers, and into quilts that can be used...

I think your Low Volume plus quilt is going to be beautiful! I have a low volume quilt on my list to make. I had fun clicking on your tabs to see the quilts you've worked on in the past. All so beautiful! Your 16 patch is really inspiring to me - that is one I'm working on for this year!

Very nice group of crumb blocks and granny squares. Good idea to get some tops assembled. I can see mine piling up this year. Blessings on the moms and the babies in waiting.

Wonderful GRAY scraps used in those blocks! I'll be looking forward to seeing what you do in RED, too.

Beautiful blocks to go with your beautiful weather! I really like those granny square blocks. I probably tell you that every time I leave you a comment.
