I finished the section for September. I made the angel block 5 years ago when I first started this quilt so I was a little ahead. I love the red bird on the star pot! I wish I had used a darker fabric behind the 1776 but it's done and I'm satisfied. I try to use a specific fabric in each quilt I make. I used it on the left portion of the block the angel is flying toward. I can't remember the name of that block pattern. I also added a little Debbie Mumm Lady Liberty in the economy block on the right.
Since I finished that section I decided to make some houses for the bottom border, and then I made some stars. And then I kept on going. The the border was a little smaller than the lower portion of the quilt so I added my initials.
And it's done!!! I don't know why the lower section was wide enough without the flying geese strip on the left. I may or may not put the strip above the smaller stars on the bottom so there isn't such a gap between them and the angel block. Hmmmmm?
It was such a fun SAL. Thanks so much Lori.
I just wanted to show you some of our pumpkins. The pictures above and below were taken on September 9th.
These two pictures are only 2 weeks later.
It's a fun time of year for the garden.
