Time is flying by!

Here we are the 6th of September already!  Where the does the time go?  I did get my pieces cut out for the three pickledish blocks that I need to complete this month.  I love the bright oranges and they look even more vibrant next to some black fabrics.  Hopefully I can get going on these today I have a trip out of town planned for later this month so I really need to focus on my goals.

 
For inspiration, I will be heading over to Angela's blog to link up and see what others are doing with orange today! I hope you can join us.

    1. Each month seems to come faster and faster. My goal for this month was to get them done in the first two weeks. So it looks like I will be in the sewing room this week.

    1. I know that orange is so much fun! I finished one block and hope to assemble the other two tomorrow morning. I do my best sewing early in the morning.

  5. Okay! Decisions made. Nice tonal range in the orange fabrics. Lots of time to get the blocks together. Should be dramatic!

    1. Sally, so glad I could inspire you. I have really enjoyed making a quilt this way. Just three blocks a month, very doable. I can't wait to put this quilt together at the end of the year.

    1. Not my usual thing but this an attempt to use some brighter fabrics from my stash. I love them with the black and whites.

  9. Oh that will be a terrific pickle dish-ey quilt, Carla. I have also added it to my list--am a little bit afraid of that curved section. ;--(((...hugs, Julierose
