Weekend trip

It was a great weekend...I took a trip to visit my sister and her husband in Indianapolis. My brother and his wife came from Ohio, too.  They both got to open up my quilted presents for them.  Success! I am so glad the green I had picked for my sisters' wall hanging matched with her house. She said she was going to hang it in her kitchen.

Driving through Chicago was not too bad.  I am always amazed by the sights of downtown at night with the lights in the high rises and the famous building. I tried a car picture: no deal. ( Oh, and the tool over the skyway bridge is a whopping 5 bucks, plus 2 others on the freeway following before getting on HWY 65.) I am also blown away by the hundreds of wind turbines north of Lafayette, Indiana.  ( Purdue home) At night they blink simultaneously, one second on, then one second off.

Any,way I safely returned and am back to a new work week.

The only quilting I have been able to do for the past week:

A) 2 more blocks to my log cabin quilt along.
 No automatic alt text available.

B) I have only 4 more of circles to baste and iron for applique.

C) 4 more purple blocks of my RSC.

D) Several more blocks pieced together for Bonnie Hunter's mystery Only 2 left to put together, piece the borders and then put it together.

E) But I did do some knitting, which has sadly been put to the side for the past couple of months.


  1. Very beautiful blocks Debbie, thanks for your participation.

  2. Love the 9-patch "hearth" in your log cabins. Very nice. I recognize those pinwheels blocks. :^D They look very good in purple. Great work on all your projects. Enjoy! ;^)

  3. Great job ! I like that you made a nine patch in the center of your Log Cabin blocks.

  4. Oh I love your log cabin blocks with the cute centers.

  5. Your blocks are soooo original with these centers ! I love them Debbie !
