I have signed up to this sew along. I am learning a lot of new things along the way. It is the 1930s Farmers Wife sampler quilt. I havent received my book yet, and there are so many people taking part in this I wonder in my heart is there a book out there with my name on it. If there is I should get it this week.
the first three blocks Becky, Bonnie and Auntthe fourth is Betty
The fifth Caroline. I’m not so sure about this block. Not much contrast. Maybe I will make again.

Yes, you can believe your eyes. I am blogging twice in the same week. I just wanted to share some fun I have been having. I joined in a Mystery Quiltalong that Kaaren is offering. I have just fallen in love with these little houses. It rained this evening, so I had just the excuse to play along.
I love them.
The Quiltalong came along at just the right time. I had finished my second Safe Harbor, also designed by Kaaren, and had nothing else started. Though, I have a couple of 50th Birthday quilts to do before Nov/Dec. I’ll start those soon. We are hoping for a dry day tomorrow to take Safe Harbor to Nicola to be quilted. Doesnt look promising at the minute. Of course, it would be another good opportunity to make more little houses. Bye for now.x

I think I will have to start a diary on the laptop, so I will be reminded what has been going on since I last blogged. My niece’s cat Enzo loves to curl up on my sil’s quilt, so I thought he needed one of his own. A few disappearing 9 patch blocks later, and he seems to agree with me.
The tall ships were in Belfast at the beginning of July. GD, D2 and I spent a great day admiring them and eating lots of unhealthy/tasty snacks from the international markets. My new favourite food is sweet potato fries.
My second Safe Harbor quilt top is finished and ready for the quilter. Planning to take it on Friday.
The sun came out just when I needed it, and DH had just cut the grass/moss, so it was just right for my photo shoot. This is a big quilt, so I put the flowers beside it to get some perspective.
Cats do love quilts. Here is Amber on a pile of little quilts I have received from participants of A Little Quilt Swap. She found them on the bed, and thought she would try them for size/comfort.
Talk again soon. Barbara.
