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!

Love your synchronized squares! I didn't get into that one, although I wanted to! I'm working on putting my rainbow squares together right now and loving it!
