BLOCKHEADS 2 Block #27

 You may have remembered this pull of fabric from my stash last month.  It's been going well and now I have some blocks....

The pattern is Indigo Revival and you can find it HERE in our Etsy shop.  The original quilt (which has always been a favorite) was in blue and cream and wall size.  I enlarged the pattern 150% to make it bed size.  The blocks now finish at 15" square and the original was 10" square.  It was easy to do, I cut my background blocks the new size and enlarged the 3 applique templates 150% on the copier.  (the other applique figures will be in the border). I loved the original in blues, but I like red too and the overflowing bins of red scraps helped me make up my mind.

I also have kept up on BLOCKHEADS 2 and this week's block is #27 by Lynne Hagmeier

The instructions are HERE 

Hope you are enjoying the fall weather (or spring for those of you in the southern hemisphere). I am sipping hot drinks and wearing sweaters. It's glorious. Bill and I are having our annual battle (eh, ......discussion) about temperature in the house. He's walking around with ALL of his clothes on and grumbling. He would like the furnace turned on. I am happy with the cool temps and all I have to decide is on what sweater I will wear today.   And there are always quilts to layer with. Lots of quilts. Layering is much more fun than central heating.

Laters,

Laurie

Ha! I'm certain this (ahem) discussion is happening all across the hemisphere as fall makes its presence known! I dress for fall; my husband dresses for January. Nighttime is the worst, but because he retires earlier than I do, the thermostat is MINE!

I love the blocks and the comments. My husband has the windows open and the fans on so the house can 'cool down' to outside which at night is 45 degrees. I just wear sweaters or layers and layer more quilts on the bed. Still, he is good to cuddle up with.

So glad to read that hubby & I are not alone in this "discussion". I totally agree -- sweaters & quilts are such a better choice over turning on the furnace (at least this early in the cold season)!
