New Blocks for the Country Calendar

This September has been very warm and lovely, just a few rainy days. This week was the first night frost in the area, but not right where we live, as this is a little uphill from the village. My summer flowers are still as beautiful as ever, and the Calluna we bought yesterday will have to wait a little to take this one's place at the kitchen door.


Today I finished the August



and September blocks for the Country Calendar. This is a free BOM from Ellie's Quiltplace.

I should have chosen some reds in different shades for the apples, but I'm pretty pleased with the basket fabric I happened to have in my stash.
I know this is against my own interest in a way, but you might want to know about Paulette's giveaway. Paulette is a Canadian quilter, and she is giving away the first issue of a new Canadian quilting magazine, with a fabric pack to make the Christmas quilt on the cover. (Telling you this gave me one more entry ;->.) I found her blog a while ago through Stephanie, and immediately became a follower. Paulette is a recycler like me, but a very talented and productive quilter as well. A hand quilter, too. Go and see her lovely blog.
This is about all I have been doing lately, so I must go and see what I didn't do for the household. Have a relaxing weekend!

  1. Good job keeping up with your calendar quilt. I enjoy seeing your new blocks. We've had lots of grey days and lots of rain today. Good day to sew. Unfortunately I'm making a quilt back and basting the quilt--not fun.

  2. Very nice. I'm always impressed with these quilting skills. I don't do any of this so it seems amazing to me.

  6. Hi Ulla.

    I'm' just coming by after your visit awhile back.

    Love these little quilt pieces, and I think a bag from your Dad's ties would be a wonderful way to use them and keep them.
