"Dove in the Window."

That's the name of that quilt block. It's the first one in my block of a month club. I love the colour's, black and white, with a touch of red. When we meet again in November, we get the pattern for the next block, the material requirement for the sashings/inner borders, and another free fat quarter. I am going to do my sashings in two colours. The bottom and right hand side in black, and the top and left hand side in a grey. I haven't bought either material yet.
I am even considering doing a second quilt with the same blocks, as I am enjoying doing different blocks. It was grey and overcast all day on Thursday, so it was hard to get a good photo.
I did manage to get out on the lawn tractor and "mulch" the leaves on Thursday. There are still some more leaves to drop off the trees, but the majority are off the trees.
My dad was up on Thursday doing some jobs in the attic for us again, he is such a good help. Its already feeling warmer up there. Dh has got a bit of insulation installed, but still has a ways to go. I'm not sure if I told you, but Home Hardware has a special deal on at the moment, if you buy $150 worth of insulation you can send away for a $25 Home Hardware gift card, so of course we took advantage of that deal.
Another good deal for the Canadians is when you buy two Glade products you can send in for a $5 Presidents Choice gift card, to find out more click on this link

Gill I love the block you have completed. I can hardly wait to see the next block, and the one after that.
Are you doing a set amount of blocks to make a full size quilt when finished? Wish I could join your class.

Those blocks are really attractive.

I remember in one of your postings you mentioned using bedding for quilts as it's cheaper. So I decided to follow your advice and I'm gathering up my sheet and quilt supplies at sales to make my granddaughters pink quilts. I've got a few different ones now and yesterday got a lovely Dorma pure cotton double valance in pretty pink and cream for only £3.99. I wouldn't even be able to buy half a yard of fabric for that!

What the heck?

Not sure what happened to me on Wednesday morning but I had a burst of energy and cleaned out some kitchen cupboards?????  I have been think...
