It's the 2nd of the month and I have to post my first of the month photos. Here's the view from the right side of my deck. The parking lot at the bottom of the hill is starting to show through the empty branches.
The mill building is very visible now. The leaves are falling fast around us. By next month I bet the trees will be bare.
DIL and I spent time sewing today. DH came into the studio and took this photo of DIL sewing away. We tag teamed on a baby quilt. I cut the pieces. She sewed. I ironed and pinned.
Here is the completed baby quilt. We used one of the baby fabrics I bought while in MN.
A quilter on one of my Yahoo groups asked if anyone is doing an Election Night Challenge. My brain immediately clicked into high gear and thought what a great idea! So I'm issuing an Election Night Challenge. I don’t want to get bogged down with lots of rules about the challenge so I’ll keep it simple.
The completed project should have at least 51 blocks. The blocks can be as simple or as complicated as you like. Each one needs to “read” red or blue. There should be one block for every state that votes red (Republican) and one block for every state that votes blue (Democrat).
The project should be done by November 30, 2008. If you'd like to join in the fun, let me know and blog about it. The more, the merrier. On December 1 I'll post photos of all the completed projects and host a poll to pick the favorite. I'll award a prize for the project with the most votes and pick a winner from those who vote as well.
I've already chosen my fabrics and here they are. I wonder what I'll make . . .
Don't forget to vote on Tuesday!
