I realized that I have an appointment with a machine quilter at the end of September, so I figured I had better change gears and get back to some hand applique.
Here is the last block for Autumn Houses by Bunnyhill.
The shapes are all pressed and glued down and now I just have a few hours of hand sewing to do. Most of the other blocks are done. Still have to finish the willow tree in the top row, a maple leaf in another block and some embroidery. Then I can piece them together and add the borders.
Needless to say, finishing this one has become my top priority.
Hiked the Highline trail on Thursday and was treated to an afternoon thunderstorm; but before the rain and hail started, I was able to capture pics of 5 new wildflowers for identification.
Amazingly, 3 of them were variations of the Gentian family.
All of the pictures were cataloged on my wildflower pages, but I had to share this one of the Fringed Gentian.
These were only about 6" tall.
We head home to Arizona on Monday. The kids and their significant others are coming with us on a diving vacation. I have all the blocks for my 1880 sampler set up for automatic postings and hope it works correctly. See you all in a few weeks.
