|Off to a good start!|
Even though this is a pale version of orange and yellow, I am going to count it as yellow and orange. I hope to have much more to post with these colors. I really like the autumn colors!

|Saturday Sampler from Local Quilt Shop|
This quilt top was at least 5 years old and has been waiting patiently for me to become confident enough to quilt it. I had "quilters block" when it came to these sampler blocks until Natalia Bonner's new Craftsy class became available called "Free-Motion Motifs for Classic Blocks". This course was like a light bulb going off in my head. I quilted the actual blocks in no time at all. I am not as proud of my quilting of the sashings but I am ok with it. I count it as practice. Most of my quilts go to my family and they aren't too picky. They are very appreciative. My inner and outer borders turned out nice. The cross-hatching on the outer border was a bit time-consuming.
A close-up of a few of the blocks.

|RSC16 Block of the Month is Staggering Steps|
Unfortunately, my camera didn't capture the true colors of the fabrics.

|Quilt Addicts Anonymous September Block|
I am using the RSC colors to make these blocks.
I am getting pretty anxious to see how these are going to look in the finished quilt.

|Play With Me QAL - Snakes and Ladders|
This is the last block for this QAL. Each month had a new game board with information about the origin of the game and how to play it. The phrase "back to square one" originated from this block which Milton Bradley patented as Chutes and Ladders, but it's origin is in China. You can find information for all of the blocks here.
