Sunny Seattle Sunday

So how is your weekend going?  It is just beautiful here in Seattle.  We haven't had rain in over two months which I love.....it is a bit chilly but sunny.  Perfect Fall weather in my opinion!! My roses are blooming - again!!!!
I stitched two of the blocks together for my Pillow Swap Talk Pillow yesterday.  I'm over my doubts about whether or not my partner will like it.  I'm going for it!!

It is not stitched together - that is why the seams aren't lined up.  I'll add a yellow and aqua square so it won't read so pink.

If the block looks familiar to you -  it is going to be the first in my Vintage Block Quilt Along.  I'm so excited about this. I have been collection vintage quilt patterns and have wanted to make a sampler quilt with some of my favorites.  I will be posting a pattern and tute at least once a month.  This is a no stress, no pressure quilt along....I hope you will join me!  Details coming soon!!

On the home front,  my hubby has ripped out the porch and front steps.  It was becoming a hazard with boards and nails popping up! Here is the before:

This is my inspiration pic for the "after".

Have a lovely Sunday!
