Split 9 Patch "The A Team" For Sale

Finished my latest quilt. It uses the split 9 patch pattern. One of my favorite patterns to make a quick quilt.

Love the backing fabric. The swirls on the backing fabric lead me to use curl pattern for my machine quilting.  Since the focus fabric was the ATV print, I chose to call this quilt "The A Team".

Tom came in & grabbed my camera to take a photo of the double rainbow outside our back door. I wish that the second rainbow was more vivid, but it had faded by the time he got back outside.  You can just see the faint outline of the second rainbow above the brighter one.

September Block of the Month

I was going to work outside tonight, but the rain came in. Don't get me wrong, I am very happy to have the rain. Anyway, I decided to complete the September BOM, the Flower Basket. Next month the lesson will be on the flowers to fill the basket. However, I decided I wanted to create my own flowers. I used my Accucut die cutter to cut out flowers, hearts & leaves.

I finished making the backing for my ATV quilt. It is ready to put on the frame & machine quilt. Hope to get it on the frame in the next couple of days.
