Falling Leaves Trickling In

On my design wall today are the early-bird blocks for November's Covered in Love Block Drive.  Thanks to Summer and Amanda whose blocks are already here and to everyone else who has commented or emailed me committing to make blocks!  If you want to contribute there is still plenty of time!  I love the color scheme and scrappiness we have coming together, this is going to be a beautiful quilt.

I have been sewing a bit here and there, mostly working on the Crumb-splosion, but for the most part November has been a month off quilting for me.  Partially I needed the break, but more importantly since 2002 November for me has meant National Novel Writing Month.  Becoming a published author is permanently on my bucket list, so this month I am trading the sewing machine for a keyboard and trying to bang out a rough draft of a story.

Hopefully I will be successful, and definitely I will be back to quilting full speed in December!

Linking to Judy's Design Wall Monday.


  1. I put 7 more blocks in the mail to you this morning. Thanks for another lovely pattern and a chance to use up some bits from stash for a good cause!

    And good luck with the novel, we'll host you when you're on your west coast book signing tour!

  2. Great again to see my blocks up on your design wall! Good luck with your writing - if your blog is any indication, you'll do great!

  3. Hi Kat, I only have one block finished so far but more to come! Glad you are writing! And like others have already said, thanks for the great pattern. Truth be told, I made my grand-daughter a table runner for her birthday with this pattern...that's why I only have one block done for you:(

  4. Sometimes it's good to take a rest an recharge. Good luck with your writing

  5. I just made some this afternoon! Will put them in the mail tomorrow!
