Good Sewing Weather

Back from our short vacation to PA.  Recovered yesterday, and went back to step class today, and dealing with the house and life.  Pretty soon I’ll be out of excuses for not sewing.  This cool, cloudy weather isn’t great for the peppers and eggplants, but you can’t beat it for sewing.

One place we saw on our trip was Frank Lloyd Wright’s Falling Water, which belonged to the Kaufmans of Pittsburg.  I’ve been there before, but its an ongoing restoration, and always inspiring.

Nearby is Kentuck Knob.  Its much smaller, but a little gem on its own.  And its based entirely on a grid of hexagons!

Yesterday I started arranging these 12″ blocks on the design wall.  Not sure if this is it yet, but its a start.

What have you been up to?
I’m linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.

  1. Love your blocks and the illusion they give. Fabulous that you got to visit FLW Falling Water. I learned about it while touring Taliesin West in Arizona and found that I saw quilt inspiration everywhere.
