A Scrappy Quilt.... and !! Finished ( or not) Friday!!

I thought that when fall came, life would get back into some sort of routine, and things would settle down - but that is not turning out to be the case. I am wondering how we fit all this *life* stuff in when we had three kids running in three different sports all the time.... hmmm... Its a mystery!!

I told my other half that Labor Day is going to be all Labor - to get organized and back on track... do you think he believes me?  haha! I am not sure that I do!!


Anyways - I was able to sneak in a finish here!!

Its pretty scrappy and I think is super colorful. I even have it washed, and turned the AC on so I could snuggle it for 10 Minutes....




I made Purple Binding for the quilt - I thought the dark would tie it all together!




We live right under the jet stream that just brings that smoke right to our doorstep and its Blechhy! and it takes the brightness off the photos. and those poor people really dealing with the Fire and devastations - oh my - I can not imagine!!

Sorry - got off subject there - another off subject.... today is our Anniversary - Hey!! I should go plan a cake or something!!! 

Anyways - this is my Finish for this week and I am taking the WIN!!  Now!! Show us what you have been up to!!

Love, love the scrappiness of the quilt- cheerful and huggable. Buy some flowers and a bottle of wine and celebrate!

Linda said...

Alycia I love this quilt! I especially love those bits of gingham. It looks so cuddly and comforting. I had to laugh at you turning down the AC so you could snuggle under it. We wonder just like you how we managed to get so much done and be so active when we were younger. We now have all this time and still never enough.

Love scrappy! Happy Anniversary! Ugh, smoke. We have it here too and it's awful. I feel badly complaining - we have smoke but no fire directly threatening us. I hope you stay out of the fire zone.

Happy Anniversary to you and your hubby. Sept is a great month. Both our birthdays are sept and it is the ending of those hot days and when all the colors begin to change here.

The AQI has been awful here too, but much worse for our son in Northern California! I think about Bernie at Needle and Foot too!

First off, Happy Anniversary, Alycia and Oh yes you should have cake. My hubby and I were saying the same thing the other day- how did we squeeze in all that we did with our young children years ago - working sports and hobbies. Lol. Your scrappy quilt is fabulous and is cheerful. What a fun piece. Thank you so much for sharing and have a great weekend.
