My sewing room looks like a hurricane hit it, but that is nothing new! I was hoping to dig into a UFO and finish something substantial, but another project came up and now I am feverishly making 9-patch blocks for a new quilt design in an effort to get it done for quilt market in October. I actually love deadlines. They get me moving!
I recently got this project back from the framer. It is by Blackbird Designs. I love the way they encourage you to honor your ancestors or others who have touched your life by including their name in a sampler. This one has the name of my great-grandmother, Kate Spencer North. I love samplers, but being a novice at this, and rather ill informed, I didn't realize the photo on the pattern was done in a variegated type of thread, but I liked the look of it, so I changed thread colors here and there to try to achieve the same effect. Silly me! My own accidental original!
Can you feel the chill in the air? The switch gets flipped on September first. Fall is around the corner.
