On the Line and Under the Needle

We've had quite the blast of Fall temps last week that are continuing into the first part of this week.  The cooler temps also brought a few grey, rainy days.  But yesterday was gorgeous!  The sun was out, with a nice breeze.  

A perfect day for hanging out some washed fabric. It's neat to see it all hanging lined up by colorway.

First up: Cherrywood's Hot Medley,

then Cherrywood's Tropicana,

and finally, a few new batiks.

While the fabric was drying on the line,  it was time to get something under the needle!  The nine patch angled section got layered and pinned.

By the end of the afternoon, four patches of the angled section were machine quilted.

Five more patches to figure out the quilt design on this section, then on to the figuring out the other seven sections.  I have an idea four four of them - they may be the same in layout, in related colors but the value placement with vary.  We'll have to see how that plays out.


  1. Love all that beautiful fabric hanging on the line!

  2. Love all that bright fabric. You have really transformed the 9 patch.
