RANDOM THURSDAY


This little pile of pretty is the beginning of my Beach House quilt #2. I have enough of these for all my blocks and just need to add sashing.


I snagged this book (the last one) on a recent road trip and am thinking this stack of 'Wrens and Friends' will work quite nicely


My block for Patti as part of the Simply Solids Bee





I started another Low Volume quilt,



and this is what's happening in my backyard these days.



I bought this hardy variety a couple of years ago and this year it has taken off. YUM !
Now, I should really start that wedding quilt.....


linking up with Cindy for Random Thursday

Sewing Mom said...

Wow...looks like you're keeping busy! I see some beautiful fabrics you've been playing with that I recognize too.

The berries look delish!

Have a great day.

Your beach house quilt colors look so refreshing! It's going to be a beauty, as is the neutrals/low volume quilt. Are those blackberries? They look plump and good! Oh, and I have to tell you... you and have the same white closet doors! How funny.

Needled Mom said...

The colors are so pretty in those strips.

Yum!!! Those berries look delicious.

Heather D. said...

Oooh, blackberries. Is it a non-invasive kind?

Your projects look great, I love the low volume.

Lynne said...

I just started another low volume quilt too! Your blackberries look great. We got almost nothing from our bushes this year.

Celtic Thistle said...

Gorgeous! I can't wait to see Beach House Quilt #2!!

Carrie P. said...

wow, your blackberries are looking great. The birds got the last of ours. I was so disappointed when I went out to the garden and they were all gone.
Enjoyed seeing what you are working on these days.

I think I have told you 100 times (maybe that is a bit of an exaggeration!) but I LOVE the colors of your beach quilt! Pretty pics and oh how I would love to have a berry bush!!

Oh my goodness, I LOVE this post. Well, I think I love all your posts-your projects are always so amazing. So...I have that book as well and haven't really come up with a plan. I'm not familiar with that line of fabric. I'm going to check it out. I might have to copy you. Love the solid block. And the low-volume quilt. And the berries are making me hungry.

So much going on, it inspires me.

I think the fruit is what stopped me in my tracks, as I could imagine piecing all those fun quilts you have there with a bowl of these beside the machine, doling them out in long spaces while I pieced. Ah, imagination!

But I'm impressed with your progress, as I seem to be making NONE. Some days are ebb, and some days are flow. . .

Lovely post--
