Back at the cabin, sewing with Rainbows!

 My stash here at the cabin is pretty limited but I did leave a bundle of Kim Diehl fabrics here last Summer that peaked my interest and got me sewing. The line of prints is at least 3 or 4 years old.  When I got it I made a few- 6" blocks.  The colors are so pretty I decide to work on more of those. for.   I've managed to make 9 more blocks in the last couple of days.

Here they are on my 'improvised design wall'.   Actually once I covered the entire pillow, it looked pretty cool as a pillow cover.  But I think I'm going to make enough blocks for at least a lap quilt.

The colors look so vibrant together and they play well with a lot of other vintage scraps I have hanging around.  It's been fun to just mix and match and make random blocks!
The weather is cool and we've had a little rain which has been very welcome to us drought ridden Californians.  We've gotten out for a few walks.  Our favorite is 'Spooky Hollow' the path that leads around the end of the cove through a very pretty woodland area.  One of our neighbors always decorates it for the Holidays.  Here are a few pix to get you in the mood for Halloween!

If your wondering about the 'Rainbow', here 'tis!
Our visit has been rewarded with Rain and Rainbows!
Have a Great weekend!
Take care, cw


  1. How wonderful to get back to the cabin. Such a lovely place. And, your blocks are sensational with those rich colors. Enjoy the weekend!

  2. What pretty fabrics and great blocks. That path through the woods looks so inviting, even with the skeletons! And rain! And a rainbow! Such fun!

  3. What a lovely place to spend time. I like the blocks a lot - fabulous colours and nicely autumnal too.

  4. How great that you got back up to the cabin in the fall! Perfect sewing weather!!
    I love what you made with the fabric you had there--the Kim Diehl fabrics are beautiful and look great in the blocks that you made.
    Looks like your sewing mojo is BACK!!! WOOHOO
    How long will you be there? I'm hoping to be back in SV in a week so hopefully we can get back into our routine!!
    Safe travels'!
