I’m Falling for You Blog Hop

How much do I love blog hops? A whole big lot! Not only do I get a big shot of inspiration from the other bloggers but I also get a shot of panic-induced sew-jo!

I was mulling over a bunch of ideas when suddenly I remembered the Canada panel. I actually wasn’t sure if I bought it so I searched my email before I searched my sewing room. And once I knew I had bought it, the sewing fairies helped lead me right to it! I paired it with a newsprint neutral from the Canadian anniversary print and added a bundle of red fabric I purchased at a quilter’s yard sale organized by Pioneer Quilts. This was, of course, pre-covid.

My Accuquilt was the star of this show with those many, many 2.5″ squares and triangles. Honestly, without it, I’d probably not have tackled that border (remember, deadline looming…) Thanks to technology and some dumb luck (seriously, I didn’t measure the panel before I started on blocks) I was able to turn this top out on a rainy weekend! So, with that lead-in, here’s my Falling for You project!

Honestly, who wouldn’t fall for that handsome Mountie?

Pieced maple leaves!

All it took for my scrappy leaves was a combo of squares, 1/2-square triangles and one quick stem! Next week, I’ll try to add a step by step tutorial.

In the meantime, hop over and give Joan at MooseStashQuilting.com some huge kudos for cat-herding and rounding up so many talented quilters!

I’m proud to be in the daily lineup with these great people..

That Fabric Feeling

Scrapdash

Fall has started here with a rainy weekend and cooler nights. Last night, however, was perfect river weather and we took advantage of ladies night to go kayaking. I didn’t really ever picture myself hanging out on the river discussing the Great British Bake Off on a Tuesday night but life is full of little surprises!

Here’s hoping there’s something unexpectedly pleasant in your week that makes you feel as contented as the grand-cat looks in this picture!

Happy quilting!

Beth
