Scrappy Mountain is now a finished top

I finished the last seam on Scrappy Mountains yesterday and photographed it
outside early in the morning

not the best shot but I couldn't get a full on photo
on my design wall - re-organisation in process in my
little studio!

Thanks to everyone for their comments on my computer/printer
in or out of the sewing room - much appreciated and I hope
I have replied to all individually.
The outcome is it's gotta go somewhere else - so I'm trying
a couple of spots for it around the house.

I'm behind this week with my second blue house and that needs to be 
ready for Sunday morning our time (NZ) and next week I
shall be choosing fabrics for Gypsy Wife - see button on sidebar -
and hoping that my Mostly Manor fabrics for my kaleidoscope will at last arrive!
Tracking shows me that it has taken five days to go from Austin TX
through to Chicago
 and I'm told now four days o from Chicago "my item is now on it"s way to the destination"  
boy do I hope so!

Quick garden shot and then I'm off to cut a house

this is part of my large patch of  liriope.

Back in a couple of days - happy quilting!

Nice photo with the dappled light.

My Liriope has never flowered - has nice variegated leaves though. Waiting for fabric to turn up requires lots of patience - not one of my strongest virtues. Have a great weekend.

Your scrappy mountains look wonderful! Lots of yummy things happening at your place - look forward to seeing your fabric choices for GW, and will follow your progress with those Kaleidoscope blocks - hey, no pressure! and I know this isn't patchwork related... but my Liriope actually flowered for the first time in years this year! I love it!

Beautiful job! Nice to see green. I have snow, but at least it is sunny today. If it warms up, I will photo some quilts outside.

Your Scrappy Mountains are beautiful! (Is beautiful?) Beautiful Scrappy Mountains!
I'll be watching your kaleidoscopes with great interest. I made a bunch more blocks yesterday - having trouble stopping...
Hoping your fabric arrives soon!

Your scrappy mountains are GORGEOUS! I love seeing this against that wonderful green grass (our lawn is dormant (khaki) and currently covered with snow). Good luck with the reorg!

LOVE your scrappy mountains!! So nice to see it done after watching your progress with it last year! Sounds like you have some interesting sewing time ahead of you :-)

Thank you for the lovely view of mountains bathed in sunlight. Molly is cocking her head wondering why white is falling from the sky and covering everything everywhere.

It's gorgeous Maureen! I look forward to seeing how you quilt it. I'm going to follow your link to the Gypsy Wife quilt to see what it's all about :)
