sweet corn from grandma's garden.
a pain to put up, but totally worth it. and my dad's garden is just getting ready to keep us in more corn and tomatoes too!
i started another quilt-a-long - the synchronized squares at p.s.i quilt. a little late, since it's already over! but i think this will make a fun holiday quilt for the couch. green, black, red, and white. the greens were all chosen to go with our family room furniture - a greenish gray brown chenille that looks awful with most greens. and i tried to only use junk fabrics from my stash, in an effort to get rid of some of the walmart fabrics from 2-3 years ago. plus, i won't have a heart attack when zach colors on it with a pen.
easy and simple, with "scruffily" edges. i should have it done for christmas. i'm done making the center squares, just working on borders. and i have more of the b&w stripe for binding. what i really wish i had in my stash is a red with big white dots. that's what's missing, i think. i took these pics tonight to play with the layout - isn't it strange how you can look at it and not see something, but as soon as it's on the screen, you're able to see weird spots of color?
i originally planned to make this in vintage sheets - since they're thinner, and the extra layer would make it sturdier. i still might, let me see how quilting this one goes first!
