It was similar to this Delectable Mountains Variation in my favorite book, Calico and Chintz.
My initial thought was to make a table runner but after making 4 individual blocks I decided to add a hst border and finish it for October's mini.
I ended up hand quilting it at the cabin.
The backing is from the Henry Ford Archive for Windham Fabrics. Make sure you hop on over to Wendy's to see more October minis :)
On another note . . .
Ever since I read an article in this magazine about using avocado pits to make a beautiful blush pink dye, I couldn't wait to give it a try.
I started saving pits and kept them in the freezer until I was ready. Then I put them in a pot filled with water and let them simmer for 2 hours.
I had an assortment of items I wanted to dye including fabric scraps, paper, shipping tags, trim, etc.
I couldn't wait to see the finished product but was a little disappointed to see that the color wasn't as strong as I had hoped. It was a fun experiment though and I have no idea if I will ever do anything with these pieces :)
A few more autumn pics:
This is our driveway in full autumn glory. So beautiful!
Yep! That's snow on Whiteface Mountain!
Another view :)
Have a great week! I've got plenty of projects to work on, do you?
