I'm Back!

yes i have been MIA…doing some work but now fall has arrived outdoor activities no longer have their same appeal…coffee on the deck is not attractive at all…my deck was covered with frost at 6:30 am…sure not sitting out there with my coffee…sure makes my sewing room more attractive at such an early hour…but not all thoughts of summer have disappeared i am working on a quilt for summer outings…
 working at using up some of my scraps…i have been cutting my scraps into 5" squares and 2 1/2 " strips…so i dug out some 5" squares and sewed them together randomly...
 hey i am going to use it for picnics right so i may as well start out with ants…at least i invited them
 a bit of fusible adhesive and some hem stitch with invisible thread  and these ants will be joining my family and i for good food and lots of laughter
come on little ant lets go outdoors and eat drink and make merry

What i did this saturday

i have been MIA for some time…i have just been working on pattern development rather then sewing…lucky for me in April EQ7 became available for us Mac users…i bought it and have been spending many hours learning how it works and working on patterns…i have been enjoying this work…although at times it has been frustrating for sure…i am not a computer nerd...

 this is the block i finished sewing on thursday from the pattern i made using EQ7
choose fabrics, figured out measurements and cut fabric for this block yesterday…sewed it together today
 completed this block today…love it…
going to design and complete enough to make up a baby quilt…should need 9 blocks as these are 12 1/2 by 12 1/2 inch squares…add sashing, borders and poof a baby quilt
