I am very happy we still have a week of October since I still need to make my 12 black churn dash blocks! I did get the 12 brown ones sewn up on Wednesday.
I am getting pretty curious as to what color November will be.... and December? In the past December has been a 'free' month but maybe there will be a posted color this year? I guess I'll have to wait and find out....
I purchased a bunch of Kona black last weekend and think I might make some hexagons to have in the busy bag so I can start the pathway's of the hexagon flowers I have been making all year. I've been playing Candy Crush or Cookie Jam in the car line this week... Must replenish the busy bag with hand work! My inspiration is from a book called America's Glorious Quilts. A friend from bowling last year brought her book in for me to look at and there are tons of great quilts in this book. The pictures are all from a 1971 exhibition of quilts from The Whitney Museum of American Art. Over 300 pages of beautiful quilts and a nice write up on the different types of quilts. I got mine through Amazon back in May for $11. It was well worth the cost as I find myself looking through the book a few times a month at night.
There is a picture of a flower garden quilt with black surrounding the flowers. I like the look and can't wait to see how my flowers look with black surrounding them.
Mine will be brighter with my fabrics but it should look pretty neat when it is done.... I hope.
I scheduled this post so hopefully I am at work today and I survived Disney - Magic Kingdom on Friday with Grandma H and the kids. They had a day off from school and it is finally cool enough for me to be outside down here during the day!
Head on over to SoScrappy and see what other dark colors have been coming out to play.
