Stashbuster's Weekend Retreat
I got an early start this morning - up and cutting out my Autumn quilt at 6:30AM. Very unusual for me because I usually sleep late (not just on the weekends either!) which is one of the wonderful things about not working.
I debated which pattern to use for this year's Autumn quilt - I really like Judy's October quilt for an hour pattern - Leaf Season but I've been wanting to do Bonnie's Pineapple Blossom for a long time too. In the end I chose to do the Pineapple Blossom because I think it will best with my fabrics. Do you see some purple in these blocks? Last year was the first time I'd used purple in one of my autumn quilts - trust me it works!
Keith won't be home until dinner time and I hiked 10 miles yesterday so today will be spent working on this top.
