It's so nice to be able to breathe fresh air and feel a bit of a cool breeze now and then. All you eager quilters are working on Christmas projects, but not me. I feel a lull in my spirit and am waiting for September..
So I wound down on my purple completely. My last block for the month was my improv and I decided go for black and white, but two bits of color did slip in there; however, they did feel right.
Actually, the pointed bits of blue and black were from a piece that showed up in my scraps and I knew it would find a place someday. I used just half of the width here, because my block size is limited to 8-1/2 inches. The other half will have to wait, but I hate to part with all of this fine bit of piecing that some talented person made.
My second block this month for Modern HST Sampler was the Whirligig, 12-1/2 inches. When I laid out some of my blocks, one did not seem to have a mate to help it blend in for a sampler. It's my beachy cabana block from June.
So I gave it a bright companion in Whirligig colors and now they make me happy, one last bit of summer. It reminds me of carnival rides and parades.
Finally, my group of 16-patch blocks at the halfway point:
I have been stocking up on more sale fabrics, mainly solids, which will never go out of style; at least that's what I tell myself. So that's all for now, friends. See you in September.
