It has been weeks since I've posted any WIPs,
but now that fall is here,
and the kiddos are in school (sniff, sniff),
I suppose it's time to start again!
After completing the Summer Sampler Series quilt,
I decided that I really liked having a block (or 2) to make every week.
So I'm playing catch up on Leila's
I've finished blocks 1, 6, 7, & 8 so far, and plan to work on number 9 tonight.
I finally have a plan, and made some great progress today--
it's AMAZING what I can get done when the girls are at school for 6+ hours!
(I had kind of forgotten what this was like!)
The block is called "That Thirties Thing,"
a paper pieced pattern I found at
The Quilter's Cache
-- a GREAT source for block ideas.
My partner likes green, and on her blog recently I've seen pops of orange,
so I hope she likes this mini quilt!

|Front and Back|
I've made a couple more Farmer's Wife Blocks, too -- both paper pieced.
The only way to go, in my opinion!

And finally, I'm hosting the Blogger's Dinner Party this month for Kate
and am working on aprons. Here's a sneak peak.
