August wall hanging

Finally! I stopped working on this series last July when we moved. I finally got back to work on it and finished August.

No name comes to mind immediately for this one though. All the others seem to have a built in name but this one doesn't.

I'm open to suggestions.

Train! Train!

The train is the Cumbres-Toltec that runs from Antonito Colorado to Chama New Mexico. It's a coal fired, narrow gauge steam engine. Bill and me at Antonito before we got on the train. We took the trip that runs to Osier and back to Antonito. That's still a good day's ride. It took from 10am until 4:30pm.

There were several stunning views like this one.

She's comin' round the bend!

We came out of a tunnel and BAM!! heart stopping canyon views!! 750 feet to the bottom!!

88 blocks!

I got 88 square in a square blocks done saturday. I used a new tool called a prep tool.
I used it to trim off the triangles so they matched up with the squares. I think the blocks still need squared up though.
This is my most favorite block. No two blocks are the same. These quilts really give me the opportunity to use up scraps and make all sorts of interesting fabric combinations.
