Strawberry rhubarb

Heat plus humidity--anybody else think this is a bad combination?  It's oppressive here!

This week I made up the pink and green Grandma's blocks for my Grandma's quilt.  Poor neglected Grandma.  I haven't made any blocks for a couple of months.  I'll need to catch up!  Here are the pinks and green for this month:



Gosh, they're so pretty! I don't remember my grandmother ever wearing this color combination, but it's one of my favorites.  I love pink and green together.  They always look happy.  One of my friends went to Sweet Briar College, and their colors are pink and green, and I'm always jealous!

And speaking of green. . .the other thing I was working on this week was the tiny squares quilt.  I like the bright green one:



And what can I possibly be doing over here?


I guess we'll find out!

I have to go now and make an offer to buy a house!  Who else is excited?  I'm finally, finally getting out of this condo! I'm so excited I forgot to publish this post on time!

Have a great weekend!

  1. Yaay to having found an offer-worthy house. Fingers crossed for you! Your pink and green blocks are lovely. I posted a picture, yesterday, of some rhubarb, and commented that it's pinks and greens were inspiration colors for a quilt. You beat me to it!

    Hope you find some relief from the heat. It's a lovely 70 with a cool breeze here today. Just perfect!

  4. The green postage stamp block is wonderful - green is my favorite color. It is so fresh and symbolizes much to me- new growth, new beginnings. Darker greens are comforting for me.
    I can't wait to hear about the house. Crossing my fingers that yr offer is accepted!

  13. It's remarkable tthat you've had any chance to work on your blocks, with the house business occupying so much time and mental stress. We went through it seven times. Take a deep breath now and then and keep on stitching when you can!

  14. Your grandma blocks look very intricate. You are making good progress on them. You are also doing an impressive job on your scrappy squares. I hope your offer on the house is accepted. I know you are ready for more space (for quilting and fabric, of course).
