F is for Fall, Football, & Food

F is for fall, football, and food. I got my F blocks done when the Little Letters pattern posted on Wednesday at http://temeculaquiltco.blogspot.com
Here are all my blocks so far. The bright blocks and the country blocks are so much fun to make and a way to make a dent in my over flowing scrap bins. I look forward to Wednesdays and Sundays for the next letter's directions.
I finally was able to speak with someone at the quilt shop where I have been getting my Journey of a Quilter BOMs from and they posted pictures of the last three month's worth of blocks plus the block that has not even arrived yet. I pieced two already and need to work on this one. Then, I will trace them and add them to my handwork basket to embroider. 
I went to my mom's and used her long arm to quilt this Lucky Stars quilt today. I will put the binding on it in the morning and spend the day hand binding it for Slow Sunday Stitching as I enjoy football. See what everyone else is slow stitching here http://kathysquilts.blogspot.com 

Do you see our garden in the background? We have not had a freeze yet, so we are still picking tomatoes and other goodies. It was 80 degrees today, we don't usually make it this far into fall with our garden. It is supposed to rain between 1 and 3 inches tomorrow and I plan on making some comfort food and baking up something delicious between sewing and doing laundry. It sounds like a perfect way to spend a Sunday in the early fall.
