A perfect afternoon

After a whirlwind week at work, I was thrilled to have an afternoon and evening with no prior obligations.  I spent time on the porch in the sun and breeze, finishing up the hand quilting on the rainbow rail fence.  This weekend, I hope to put the binding on and start on the quilt for the second twin.

Then I spent some time playing ball with my son.  I think the game is supposed to be called "Catch", but for us, it is more like "Throw and Chase."

As the temperatures cooled, I retreated inside to finish up making the blocks on my scrappy spiral log cabin baby quilt.  This one doesn't have a recipient, but it is taking up space on my design wall, so I wanted to finish it up.  The blocks aren't sewn together yet, but I like the way it is turning out.

Ah, I remember the game of 'throw & chase' with my kids - now I play it with my grandies. Love the scrappy spiral quilt.

Erin, what size are your blocks and where did you get the pattern? Is a freebie on the web somewhere?

I love the quilt! Who is the thrower and who is the chaser?

Echo Jean's question: pattern? Block particulars?? I really like it and have so many scraps that would work. I already have a fabric to use in the "white" area!! Happy quilt!!!! Hugs, Doreen

Glad to hear you got some down time (although playing catch doesnt sound very restful!)
