Hi Quilters!

Today at the Cabin:

Well, ok, the grapes didn't get done, or the grapevines. I did get some firewood cut and hauled up to the cabin.

Still on the list, clean up the area around the new deck and get it decorated for fall. Isn't Autumn fun to decorate? Haul in some hay bales from the barn and dress them up with corn stalks, colored leaves and twigs and of course, pumpkins and squash.

Also need to get the chicken coop cleaned out before winter. This entails throwing a bunch of sawdust and hay in there and pitch forking it in all together. Throw in some corn and grain and let the chickens do the work, This adds to a bit of heat in the coop during the winter.

And then more firewood. And get the decks cleaned off of all of the summer and fall plants and then more firewood. Finally, more firewood!

Diagonal Half Square Triangles

Reader's Show and Tell....

I chose 6 western fabrics from my stash and Kaye's Pond Lily pattern for my last class with Kaye.

I added another row across the top and down the side in the center with the dark background, added a faux sash around it and finished it with one row of 'Candy Corn' with tan background for the 'border'.

This quilt ended up 64 1/2 X 53 1/2 inches.

When I was working on this in class Kaye kept saying to me, "That would look nice cut the other way". Of course I had to cut some "the other way" and that is what ended up in the border. I really enjoyed working on this quilt with Kaye. This one is for my husband, Carl. He supports me in all of my quilting endeavors and he needed a quilt. As with all of Kaye's patterns this one is very easy and will be used again.


Send me pictures of your creations and we'll put them here and on our Show and Tell Page.

FR** E-Pattern....

Dimensional Diamonds


Each tumbling block is made up of three diamonds, a top, left and right. Each diamond can be fussy cut for added interest. To get a 3D look, choose a dark, medium and light colored fabric for each block. Uses Kaye's View & Do Diamond Shape (sold separately).
