This is the 2nd Trip Around the World Mini I have made in the last few weeks - this time green and blue and purple...
Yes we dressed alike for our "Halloween" at Camp - annual traditions - Louie and Sammy were Turtles - very warm Turtles it was in the upper 80's on Sunday....Too hot for September.

I am thinking that 30 blocks will be better than 25 so I may need to add 5 more sets to the quilt. I am light on the blue/green/aqua side so I hope to add 5 fats of Kaffe Collective in that color range to the quilt.
I am loving making this quilt and have another quilt from the book (Cultural Fusion) on my radar. I love the "Winter" pattern but plan to do it in prints vs. the solids used in the book. I have so much fabric and really want to use some of it.
By the way, my setup at "sewing central" includes my Sew Ezi table (very happy customer) and a pressing surface my BFFs husband made us. The cutting area is perfect for me, its about 40" and my back appreciates the tall surface.

Since last I posted I have taken a class with the wonderful Lynne Tyler at the Quilted Threads in Henniker NH. We worked on a quilt from Cultural Fusion by Sujata Shah. I love the quilts in this book and have at least one other on my list (Winter - pg 90).

this Singer 301A is on its way to me - UPS says it will arrive sometime tomorrow - I am hoping that tomorrow is in the AM as we leave for our camp mid-day and I really want this baby to go north with me... she still needs a name - but I need to see what year she was born first. I feel like she needs some accessories too - maybe a quarter inch foot to start.
I want to test the Drawn Together Paper Pieced Block
