Here in Minnesota, we are settling into winter. We haven’t had as much snow as we did last year at this time, so it has been nice to get a few extra weeks of fall. The lake is threatening to freeze over. In fact, it has frozen over three times, then the wind blows it open again. I am grateful for a few more days of seeing the beautiful blue water, rather than a sheet of ice.
Did you have a good Thanksgiving? We had four family get-togethers over the holiday weekend, which was fun, but not good for the waistline. Time to break out the Thanksgiving pants! In addition to all the get-togethers, Joel’s sister Andrea came over and we made Raspberry jam together.
It was a fun process, and not as hard as I thought it would be. Now we have about 14 pints of jam, so I might be looking for ways to use jam, other than just breakfast.
On the quilting front, I am in the process of finishing up a bunch of things. Several haven’t been photographed yet, but I do have one that I haven’t blogged yet.
I love the combination of the royal blue and the aqua blue. I wouldn’t have thought to put them together, but it’s so attractive. I especially love the blue block second from the corner above and the one below. The fabric is by a new Moda designer named Lily Ashbury.
The machine quilting is pretty simple.
I just did a loops over everything.
And just in case this post doesn’t have enough pictures, I’ll add a few more. You know I love color options, so here are a few more version of this pattern.

Awww… now I miss fall!
