 this quilt top....just have to put a couple cars on the road.  Then it will be a filmsy.  This is my See ya Later Alligator Blog Hop..The story behind this quilt is a trip my hubby and I took about 30 years ago to Canada.  On the way there it was nothing but Pine trees, a kaziillon of them.

Now I need to figure out what to make for the Gremlins and Goblins Blog Hop. 


 I have a couple months to work on this one.  I'll start the goggle process of searching for gremlins and goblins.

In the mean time, I've got some catching up on some of my monthly challenges. But first I've got to cut some Muslin blocks.  And I want to start a new will be Chickens.  But this will be a slow working I'll be working on  it once in a while.

While I was blog hopping yesterday....I saw lots of new ideas for a if I need ideas...that usually gets me in trouble...ha ha

The one that caught my eye was a Cup quilt.  It was so cute!  In the mean time, I've still got the Red Work quilt in the hoop to be tied...only have a couple more rows to do.  Then the Boo quilt goes in the hoop.  This  won't take long to's a small quilt.

I also need to make my Blue birdhouse for RSC 2020.  And my National Day Lama needs done for September.  But, I'll finish up the See ya Later Alligator quilt...I need to put a couple cars on the road.  Plus I want to make a couple table runners with orange...

Both sides have 5 blocks, but as you can see it's not right.  So last night I ripped the trees off and separated all the trees.  Found the problem, some of the blocks are 8" and some are 8 1/2".  

I sorted through them and found enough the right size and sewed them on.

Next comes the water, representing Lake Michigan.  With a pretty blue.  I'll cut this into 2" strips and sew them on tonight.

Then to hold it all together will be a brown.  

I'll put a around all that  as the last border, not sure what color I'm using, but I'll figure it out.

Hope you all have a wonderful.....
