This is the basket block from August 30th, I believe. I chose to use some of the last bits of the Busy Thimble snippets green in the center that I believe is an older Jo Morton, and when I was running out of it used what I KNOW is a Jo morton for the basket bottoms. The cheddar is an Andover, too
Then for this past week's entry, was it Nancy Rink, I think? I made the block above. As I have worked on these blocks, I have been using a Marcus Brothers' background. But the second block in the series, shown on the left below, I had done with one of the odd snippets backgrounds. Later I decided that it looked too white to work with all the rest.
In the process of re-working the block for the matching background in that lovely rich tea-bag tan, I discovered that my first block was sewn all wrong. I had put the dark black and olive green outer units in completely backwards. If you look at the correctly sewn block on the right, you can see that they describe a square on point around the cheddar spinners. I never realized it until I was making the block again.
In the meantime, I am loving this cooler weather! Perhaps we are finally done with the horrid summertime with all the bugs and weeds. Everybody loves the Fall!
