Remember a couple blog posts back where I talked about enjoying fall?
Well it’s already over 😦 Beyond those windows it is a total white out. There is about 12″ of fresh snow on the ground and the wind is howling at 20 mph. This is really early folks. I am going to need lots of quilting therapy to make it through winter if it starts this early #%*#$^@*!!!!
My therapy is starting today, as I work on this quilt. I just took it off the quilting machine and I am auditioning several prints for binding.
The quilt is based on a runner from my last book – On the Run Again. You can see the runner below. It was one of my favorite things from the book, so I knew I would want to make it into a quilt some day.
If you have the book, just make the blocks as directed and instead of cutting just blue half triangles, you will also need to cut some blue full triangles.
I also wanted to share a few pictures of the boys today. Many of you have sweetly asked to see some pictures of them together. Despite that being a really challenging task to get them to both cooperate, I actually have a couple to share today –
These first two were taken when Max was only a few weeks old.
I took the next pictures last week, so Max is closer to 3 months old (already!)
And lastly – Our fall family photo. I wish Carter would have smiled, and Max didn’t look so stressed, but such is picture taking with little kids.
Speaking of boys, they are still napping, which means I have time to go back to my “therapy.”
