Wednesday Weather Report #10

So clearly, if I was on vacation last week and pre-posted to the blog, I had no idea what the weather would have been for last week's report. The weather was calling for orange (70s), hence last week's post said orange but that wasn't absolutely the case. I wish those weather peeps would get their act in gear...

Week #9
The following week had a lot of orange, plus a couple outliers. Yesterday topping out at 60 was a big surprise...that's mountain weather, not WNY in late July weather.

Week #10
I should be able to get caught up on appliqueing these to backgrounds on Friday.

These are the yellow/orange "cogs" that I stitched while on vacation.
I love how the different fabrics make the same pattern look so different.
I've got one more in progress and that gives me a total of 26 or 27 yellow/orange rosettes.
 I think that's about half what I need for the final quilt.

I've probably got another 10 rosettes kitted already!

And here are all the blue rosettes.
No idea how many of these I have completed...

That's probably all I'll do on the pieced hexies for a while since now I need to get back to working on something "new" for a pending trunk show this fall.

Uhhhh...Zorro....Love you, Monkey, but you're in the way....

Maybe you recognize this from the pieces I showed during the last HeLP?

This is probably about as tall as it will get (it's for the doll cat bed), but I need a lot more width.

And last but not least, my quilting purchases from vacation...

I already owned the half-nekkid woodsman fabric but it has "vintage" colors that are hard to match so I've been searching for fabrics for a year, picking up FQs here and there while trying to decide on a design. This year I first found the camping phrase fabric on the right - that will become part of the backing. Then I found the red check which perfectly matches one of the woodmen's jackets. The check will be the binding and part of the backing plus it finally gave me a design nudge for the front. I'll play with EQ7 some and then I think it's time to cut into the fabric I've been collecting! Woohoo!!!

And now it's your turn - how has the weather been in your neck of the woods?

cogs and rosettes look great I have never got past a plain hexie. Cats seem to think they are in this world to keep quilters company and often hinder them too

Wow, I love your black and white (navy and white?) project. Very graphic!
