Quilt Blocks galore :)

I have been feeling sick this week, I had to stay home from work on Monday, and have had a stomach ache ever since. Curren was sick today, so I stayed home from work to take care of him. He seems to be okay now though, so that is good! I haven't been doing much this week, just haven't felt that good. But today I got 3 blocks done for the birthday block exchange I am in.

Weathervane Block:


Sunlight and Shadows block:

Wyoming Valley Block:

I tried to make a few that were a bit more difficult. I think I did okay! I usually can never get my seams to be perfect, so oh well :P It was fun making different blocks though! I really liked the Wyoming Valley block, I think that'd make a great quilt top, with several of them all laid out.

Last July I started a Block of the Month with a group at church. We got all of our blocks done. I am working on putting the top together. I am going to put two more borders on this quilt, then it'll be completed.


We have had a good crop of cucumbers this year, our tomatoes are still green, I wonder why they aren't red yet? We have dozens of them on the plants. I am sure they'll all turn red at the same time so we will get sick of them really fast LOL!

Everyone have a nice weekend!

So sorry you haven't felt very well this week, Heather! Hope both you and Curren are feeling better soon so you'll all have a nice weekend!

Your quilt blocks are so colorful! I also really liked your bags! Thanks for the link to the tutorial. :)

Holy cow! What are you going to do with all of those cucumbers? Matt didn't eat dinner one night because I put cucumbers in the pasta stuff I made. I didn't realize he hated them so bad until then. (I was upset about it, but I guess it was his loss.)

I am sorry to hear you have been sick. Hope you´re feeling better now. I love seeing your quilt blocks, they are so colourful and nice. It will be lovely when the tomatoes turn red.

I love your bright colors! And I always enjoy seeing your blog. Everytime I look at it I vow to start my quilt....and then somehow...I don't.

Look at all of those cukes! I have a really good, and easy, relish recipe if you want it. I used to make it [back in my gardening/pickling/canning days - oh...thirty some years ago.] Makes great Christmas presents. Hollar if you want it.
