During this rainy time, I've been working on a quilt for my brother. He owns a small farm/ranch and is very much into the cowboy/farm/ranch life. Sold his longhorns a while back but still has his cows and several horses. Since the new lady came into his life, there are even more horses around the place!!
Anyway, I'd originally planned the quilt using a mid-range blue fabric and a grassy looking fabric that had gold and brown tones in it. However, upon measuring the blue fabric I discovered I didn't have enough to make the quilt. When I went shopping to see if I could find something to replace it, I had no luck. Instead I found another darker blue that also looked pretty good. I let myself be influenced to get the darker blue and also the same grassy fabric but in a colorway that was more distinct and had darker blue in it. I shoulda known better. Once I got the blocks put together, I wasn't real happy with how they looked. But, since all the fabric is already cut there is no way I'm going to take it apart and redo it. Guess I should learn that lesson with this quilt.
Here are two looks at part of the blocks in different arrangements.
The quilt is coming together quite easily and I'll be making the final layout decisions soon I think.
My birdwatching buddy will be home from California in a couple of days. Just in time too, because the fall migration is getting underway. There are reports of wonderful birdwatching at some of the nearby hot spots. Will be good to have her back.
Y'all take care.
