Wow how the temperature has dropped

I'm not usually one who grumbles about the cold I'm usually feeling the warmth if you know what I mean! Goodness if its this cold now what's January going to be like?

It's been a busy month so far with a lot of hospital appointments taking up our time and November won't be any less busy it will be every week day with weekends off. Mr B isn't fairing much better either bless him, he's got a chest infection which has floored him.

Over the past few days to take my mind off things I've been working on a quilt for the bed in my sewing room. I posted a photo recently of these 10" sq's I'd been cutting further down is how it stands now.

The blocks are made up of 4 squares and n occasional pinwheel block. I've got 3 rows pieced together and hope to have the quilt top completed in the next few days. Each block is 8.5" sq and the quilt is 10 x 12 blocks. I don't think I'll be adding a border possibly just binding it but we'll see. I don't want it to be to fussy. I love autumnal colours and this gives me the chance to utilise them, I am so looking forward to this being finished. 4 rows done only 8 more to go 😊.

I've also got my next quilt in mind which is a pattern by Eleanor Burns called Piece of cake, I've got Moda's 30's playtime layer cake in mind for this one.

Before I go I've entered a great giveaway on a lovely blog here Cheryls

Sorry you are undergoing treatment Peg and do hope it is not to painful for and Mr.B is recovering.

Your latest quilt is looking pretty and I hope you can work on it while having treatment.

Take care of each other.
