And I had to try a new backpack pattern. This one is Noodlehead's Range backpack. I used Soft and Stable on this, and I think the backpack might be too stiff. On the other hand, the previous backpack I made is too slouchy. Oh great, I've turned into the Goldielocks of backpacks. I like how the blue one works - I've used it for walking home from Trader Joe's. Now I need to pilot this grey one. Hmm, I have a gift certificate to Anderson's Book Shop, and there's one in downtown LaGrange. Time for a walk!

This Fence Rail of peppered shot cottons has been done for a while. But now it's time to quilt it. This will go to my nephew Chris and his wife Andi in Orlando. And there's no timeline. As I bind it - it's already pin-basted - I'm making decisions about how to approach this hand-quilting project for the fall.
This improv 11" x 22" block is for the 2020 QuiltCon charity quilt that my Chicago Modern Quilt Guild is doing. It's going to be fabulous. Can't wait to see this come together.
And a sad last. One of my quilties is leaving the area. These blocks are part of a little going-away present.
