A Finish - and Almost Another

The weather has been interesting the last few days.  I have had summer, tornado spring, and today, late fall. Thursday it was sunny in the morning, then by early afternoon, the sun was hidden.  However, a bright overcast day is great for getting true colors in a photo. So I decided to get photos of the quilt top since I had finished it just before lunch. 

It seemed calmly serene and just a little cool as I put up the line and hung the quilt. Then I pulled out my camera and walked around to take photos.  The wind decided to play with the quilt. I think I took ten to twelve photos. 
And the wind laughed at me. 
I laughed back and kept snapping photos. 

As you can see, Mr. Wind had the last laugh  I even tried 
weighing down the bottom edge, to no avail. 
At least you can see what I did with the scraps and the borders. 
This quilt has a lot of movement anyway.  Maybe the wind was flirting with it.
Birds of a feather, you know. 

At Mom's house we continued to work on the latest puzzle.  Mom had made a few 
strides the night before and then on Thursday morning. 
I was impressed.  Plus, it made it easier for me to fit in some more pieces. 
Here is how it looked when I said "Enough!" on Thursday. 

All the pieces that remain are green. But I wouldn't be surprised to find it finished on Friday 
afternoon when I visit. Mom finds doing the puzzles a lot of fun. 
(Okay,  I am enjoying it, too. I confess. Mom and I make a pretty good team.)

Until Next Time,  
Stay Creative

Your quilt top has a lot of movement - with or without the wind - it's AWESOME! And you and your Mom DO make a great team - I'm glad she enjoys doing the puzzles - they look quite challenging with all of the grass/trees/sky - ))

Thi is amazing! I would never have thought the fabrics are batiks, well most of them, but I know they are. Did you design this block, Gene? How will you quilt it?

Your latest quilt has movement! Both in the quilt and from the wind! :-)

I like your quilt, and I think you are probably right - the wind WAS playing with it! It is so sweet to me to read that you and your mom are enjoying doing the puzzles. I used to do them with my mother, and then with our children many years ago. Enjoy the time!
