Fall is Here

I love fall!  It is my favorite season.  Love the crispness in the air even though it is still hitting the 80's here in So. Cali. Don't love the Santa Ana winds that usually show up in October-but love everything else.  Last night we hosted an Evergreen couple from upper state NY.  Lovely people.  I was up at 5am and working on the Aiming for Accuracy lesson 15 that came out sometime during the night.  Almost finished this afternoon after a day of counseling at El Cajon Valley HS.  I love that school.  I was highly motivated because today's lesson finishes part C and I was almost able to sew the entire quilt top together.  Will finish in the morning and have figured out the measurements for the border so will start on them Monday.  I really like the way this quilt came out.  I was given a king fitted sheet that coordinates just fine for the backing so the only extra expense was the 2 yds of black I bought for this quilt and the batting that will fill it.  I am going to take it to Quilter's Paradise to quilt it. Yay-almost done!

Wow! In the grand scheme of things, you really flew through all of those blocks. I would still be fussing with the first one.

Glad you had a good time subbing with the high school students. We ran out of subs yesterday. We could have used you!

Hi Elaine! thanks for Following me on my blog! I'm now a new Follower on yours! :-) Your A4A quilt is so beautiful. I'll finish up Lesson 16 today. Still need to catch up on the Batik version but it can wait, no hurry for that one. The quilt-along has been such great fun and I have met so many new friends!
