Another Saturday in Pictures

The gorgeous weather we are having today pulled me out into the garden earlier this afternoon to see what I could find - I've added potato harvester to my resume. 
Potatoes & Tomatoes
I completed the Fireflies Block (block 6) of the Sew. Happy. Quilt. QAL this morning.  So happy how this one came together.

 And here are all six together:
 Two weeks ago I gave a local long arm quilter my School Yard quilt top and the pieced back.  Guess who had not made the back wide enough?

 Thank goodness I had more of this fabric (it's blue&white pinstriped) so as I was about to sew on another panel to the side I thought to myself - I need to piece in a label and make this right.  I found some leftover binding fabric and set in a fun ticket label.    

My first pieced label!  
Wherever you are and whatever you are doing, hope you are having a great day~


  1. LOVE the sewn in label! and your tomatoes are gorgeous!

  2. Once again, I'm jealous of our abundant produce out there! I love digging potatoes. Like my own personal treasure hunt. Your blocks are looking great and I love the little label on your quilt!

  3. I'm totally with Toni RE: the produce!! Your blocks are really nice - glad you got your backing fixed & can move forward. I'm not sure I've seen a sewn-in label like that - very cool!

  4. I went out and picked up some Vitamin D also today. Love you quilt and back. Are you quilting it?

  5. Everything looks stunning! Love your School Yard quilt - congratulations :)

  6. I absolutely love your QAL blocks! I've been thinking of joining in, but don't know if I can catch up at this point. What a great idea to piece your label into the backing! I can't get enough of the Ticket fabric, so cute.
