What are the odds?

Three blocks completed, three blocks sewn together. Not bad going considering I started this quilt in August :o)  But what are the odds I can keep this up?

Pretty good I hope, as I’m really enjoying the process of choosing the fabrics, preparing the pieces and then sitting in the evenings sewing away while I watch t.v.

Here is the first row done…sorry the picture is dark, but the skies, which were blue a moment ago, have darken and rain is imminent …hmm..too bad, I guess I’m stuck listening to rain while I sew up my own storm working on block 4.  You can tell I’m sooo disappointed about that :o)

Until next time...♥

Your block is beautiful. I really like how the window is appliqued and the fabric you've used. Together the blocks are marvelous.

Oh, your blocks look great together! It inspires me to dig out a pattern I have had forever!

We are going on 41 days with no rain! If you have too much send it my way!
