Back from apartment hunting in Alabama! The hilly terrain of Birmingham was quite a surprise after living in flat Florida. Also made the observation that there is a dearth of quilt shops in Alabama. We drove to one north of the city only to find it out-of-business. Don't you hate that? My daughter found one (in Ozark, Alabama) on the way back, Front Porch Quilt Shoppe, that we stopped at. I highly recommend it if you're ever in the area. It was a Quilt Sampler (magazine) shop just last year. And wow! A few iPhone pictures I snapped but they really don't do it justice.
And just because...

Gen X Quilters. The finished quilt will have a Modern tilt to it with the solids and large amount of negative space planned.
I'm thinking of joining the Nested Churn Dash going on at QuiltJane. I certainly don't need another project but we'll see.
I'm off to Birmingham, Alabama tomorrow to look at apartments for the daughter.
Send good vibes!
Talk to you later~

Aurifil Threads one using totally scraps.
Stitchery Dickory Dock. I'm really loving this one! I dug out a line of Asian fabric I bought back in 2005 and using them. The blocks are pieced or paper pieced and I've actually learned a few new things since starting. This one is a paid subscription but so much fun.
Thanks for stopping by~
