That's the title, and the pattern is by Terry Atkinson.
I've made 22 blocks. I think I need one more.
I've been doing some sewing, less blogging, obviously. I think about blogging almost every day, but priorities get in the way.
I do hope you are all well. I take some time most every day to check out what you all are doing through Google Reader, which I guess is soon to be a thing of the past. I'll have to get up to speed soon.
Take care, and talk to you soon, I hope!

Disclaimer: I did not make this (although I wish I could claim to be the artist).
I don't know what it is, or who made it. It's some kind of cut-out applique, and it's hand-sewn. My daughter gave it to me from her MIL. I put it up on my design wall just because I like it, and as I was making some Granny Smith blocks I noticed the colors are very similar. It makes me think of Victoria's tea towel challenge (bumblebeans.blogspot.com) where you take a tea towel and improv some borders around it. I might attempt it with this piece.
In other news, I DID finish my Easy Street quilt but, as predicted, I folded the quilt top and put it away without sandwiching it or finishing it. Maybe some day I'll find someone who will love it!
And here's a random question: Do the colors turquoise and coral go together? I can't picture it but I'm told by someone that those are the colors they like and I don't know if they meant the two together. I didn't want to ask questions and get their suspicions up.
At my Monday night quilting class last week I asked Jean to bring in something for show and tell. She obliged with this beauty:
I forget what she called this pattern - I like it! The way the blocks are made, they appear to be shimmery. And the entire quilt was so very soft!
