Happy September!! I am sewing along with the Shenandoah Valley Botanical Quilt project - the pattern is provided by the Virginia Quilt Museum and all pattern sales benefit the museum. Dawn, from Collector with a Needle, and Doreen, from Aunt Reen’s Place, are hosting a quiltalong for this quilt, here.
This is my version of the block chosen for September, labelled Serratifolia (known to us today as a "Fushia"):
I love the quirky shapes in this block and am quite happy with the dark pink wools that I picked for the blooms.
Here is a picture of the current family of blocks...they are quite a site en masse but are hard to capture in the breeze this morning. I had to chase two of them across my yard after the photo - wow!!
A bit of an angle to try to show the texture.
The clouds have been pretty gloomy along with a strong breeze at my favorite time to take photos lately, but the clouds have been pretty to look at between the raindrops. I got my husband to attend my son's last soccer game in the driving rain earlier this week so I am feeling pretty good about the predicted sunshine at tonight's game I will attend :)
In other news, I have some new chicks...can you spot the new little boy? Our rooster is getting pretty old so I asked for a little man to be added to our normal chick order. He's the little light yellow guy.
Have a wonderful day!
