NEW FABRIC AND ONE BORDER DONE ON QUILT

I have been working on my granddaughters quilt this past week as i had planned to do....spontaneous quilting is ok for awhile but now i know i can get more done if i focus on one thing and stick with it...this is what i  did last week and now i am working on the outer border which will be a 2 needle one with just 2 rows instead of the 5 i was working with the inner border....at this rate i will be done sooner than i thought....sure hope it all goes well till the end....

Another fabric package came yesterday...and this is one of the color combos i found....


i think it will make a very pretty quilt of some kind and i also added to my browns more yardage....
 
now that i have most of the early bags of blocks out of my basket i can concentrate more on batiks and other things....i am getting away from the pastels more and more but my eye still goes to them and i can see many quilts from them....one of them being the sherbet quilt i talked about in another post...i will repeat that quilt one day...loved the colors in it...

i do have to leave the quilting alone for awhile today and do some cooking....i have bananas on the counter to make up into banana bread...i think iwill make as much as i can and freeze and give away later for Christmas...i will see how that goes today...more on this later lol....

my daughter and i are going next week one day grocery shopping...so i am making out a big list being she will help me...i dont have the stamina to shop in the big stores like i used to....i want to keep cabinet stocked with the winter weather trying to creep in....we could be in for a harsh winter this year....experts say no but havent they been wrong before???? lol....

what i know for sure is i will be making old fashioned potato soup for supper tonight...good comfort food and very warming for cold bones but for now finishing up my coffee and maybe another sweet roll before i start to move..yummy!.....more later.....
