Summer is ending here.  School started Monday and the football season has started.  
We watched a scrimmage on Saturday with our grandson Elijah playing.  He is a Sophomore this year and his second year of football at the High School level.  He also played football in Middle School.
We had a time trying to pick him out in the players on the field.  No numbers on their shirts for these practice games.  Their first actual game is on Friday.  
No trouble finding this one.  Our oldest granddaughter's first day as a new High School English teacher.  We are very proud of her.  
It has been pretty toasty outside this past week.  Time to stay in with the A/C on and sew.  I continue to add to my Dresden quilt.  I have the backgrounds cut and the centers ready.
Here are the blades cut with their background fabric sample attached.  Sort of an assembly line.  I need the reminder of which blades go with which background.  
So far I have about 8 done.  However, non of them have the blades or centers sewn down yet.
The last six star blocks for my summer quilt are ready to go.  
Yes, here they are a total of 132 blocks when those last six are complete.  King Size 99 by 108 when done.  Just two pillow shams left to figure out and make.  
This week has been pretty eventful so far all the way around.  Lots of wonderful starts to finish off the summer.  



  1. wow, wow!!!

    looks like fun on all counts!

  2. Very pretty dresden fabric pairings--I really like those roses! (I have both those fabrics, too; I made a running horse applique with the dark maroon as a house warming gift for former horse owners).
    I love weeing how we all use our fabrics in such different and creative ways...looking forward to seeing your dresden come together...hugs, Julierose

  3. Such great things to end summer with--football and your grand daughter teaching! I love them both! I have been teaching for 23 years and watching football since I was a kid. I head back to school officially on Monday, but I have already been going in to prep my classrooms--one of my favorite things. I can't wait to see all of those blocks together!

  4. Wow! Pretty projects in the works - can't wait to see how this evolves!
