So, a certain person was supposed to have basted a certain baby quilt for quilting this weekend.

That certain person didn't get her act together and instead played with these.

Well, at least I'm sewing. I think this block is called Garden Path. I've been taking more care than usual when piecing these blocks and opening the seams to reduce bulk. Starching the fabrics has meant that they are easy to finger press as well.

Spring is in the air, the days are warming and there are kookaburras in the gum tree of my neighbour's yard cackling away as I type this. They are sometimes called Laughing Jacks. It's incredible that they make their home in suburbia.

 I hope you and your loved ones are safe - we are seeing some dreadful images on the news about the wildfires in California and the devastating hurricanes in Louisana and Texas.


  1. This looks like a lot more fun than basting a quilt! We are embracing a few days of cooler temps here, heading towards fall, but I'm not quite ready for fall itself, just temps that are not scorching hot! I hope your spring is a better one than we had here with virus panic happening everywhere...I hope the months between our spring and yours have allowed some learning to happen that will make yours the meantime, there is always quilting!

  2. Well, today we are expecting 104 degrees, just as the past two days have been! I spent yesterday sandwiching a quilt, so I did your job! Your blocks are beautiful, and look so smooth. Well done, my friend! ---"Love"

  3. Those are really cute blocks...I can see why they overtook the other task.

  4. That certain lady is naughty, but it sure looks as if she is having lots of fun. Spring....yay!!

  5. I love those blocks!! We are having a hot week in the 90s here and our A/C doesn't work. Hopefully, they will come back with the needed part to get it fixed before too long. I can't wait for cooler weather!!


Thank you for stopping by.
