2017 Moda BlockHeads BOW – Block 31

It is that wonderful day of the week, Wednesday – a new BlockHeads block, besides being ‘hump day’, aka week is half over, weekend on the horizon.  Some weeks I think ‘yikes’, I have so much to do, needs to be Monday, not Wednesday!

This weeks question:  Is there something quilt-related on my ‘bucket list’.  Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha . . . of course, I want more sewing time for languishing quilt projects.  My WIP list is not diminishing and I have the bins of projects to prove it.  See, we really are alike.

A little FYI – I’ve never liked the term UFO, because . . . I have no aliens in my house.  That means WIP is my go to acronym.  You are probably learning more about me than you want to know.

Back to the ‘bucket list’ question, I’ve been to quilt shows I never ever dreamed I would get to see, feeling blessed on that one.  As for my ‘quilts I would like to make list’, that becomes another ha, ha, ha, ha . . . yes of course!  Not one quilt, but a lengthy list!  Not saying how many.  Now, you really know why I make smaller quilts, I can make my version of a quilt inspired by an antique quilt, make it wall size, doll quilt size, or maybe throw size (it does vary), and that seems to make me very happy, and isn’t that part of why we quilt?

This weeks block is by our friend Lynne Hagmeier, named ‘Dot Dash’, this was a fun one to make!

You can find the block directions on Lynne’s Blog:

Fall is in the air here in Nebraska, especially today after a warm spell, really cooled off at a high of 62.  Fall is my favorite season, time to buy orchard apples – at the orchard, and love watching the colors change, love going for rides to enjoy mother nature (we did that Sunday), the chill in the air, love being able to wear a jacket with jeans, also perfect time for a walk in the park.  I wish for you a beautiful walk in your park or favorite place to walk!

Until next week, happy stitching!  Jo
