Weekend Update

The first weekend of October has been cold and rainy, so it has been perfect for hanging out in the sewing room and cutting fabric. I am making the "plus" quilt I told you about yesterday, and have finished cutting, laying out and labeling. When I was laying out the design, I realized that I probably should have added some green fabric to the mix, but I kind of like the vintage look of the quilt as is.

Most of the Halloween decorations are up, and I will be sharing photos as the light in my house allows. Dinner is cooking, the fireplace is going and I am watching The Big Bang Theory,  which is my new favorite show.  A wonderful Sunday afternoon.


  1. Hi Debbie. :o)
    What a nice day you have had. :o) I would love to have a fire place to light. It won't be long and we can sit under the stars around a little bon fire, roasting marshmallows and being together. :o) We just turned the ac off a day ago (finally).
    I can not wait to see your quilt! I have looked at that pattern for some time and I just know yours will be as adorable as can be. :o)
    Have a wonderful week!
    hugs. Trish

  2. Can't wait to see your decorations and quilt prints and colors! Same weather here. xoRobin❤

  3. A good way to while away an afternoon. I haven't been out all weekend. Sitting here in the chair with the Yorkies.

  4. Dear Debbie,
    How organized you are! Labels and small zip locks... My fabric is tossed around in a great mess on shelves, table tops, chairs and whatever is around. My squares put in piles on my table to always get mixed up somehow during the piecing process... I absolutely have something to learn from you here. Excited to see this scaaaaaarrrry quilt.

  5. This quilt is going to be exciting, Debbie!! I love your Halloween decorating and can't wait to see what you do this year. Have a wonderful week.

  6. You are all set Debbie…. :)
    Where are you from, or where are you living at the moment? Here in the UK we have been experimenting a Hit wave for almost a week. Very nice and very weird.
    Best regards, Lorena

  7. I'm really looking forward to seeing your finished quilt. This sounds like the perect weekend to me!

  8. Oh the colors of fall. I just love the fabrics you have chosen.

  9. Don't you just love starting a new quilt! I swear most of the fun is in the design and planning stage. Your fall quilt looks like it's going to be super. Have fun sewing!
