SAL Blocks 20 and 21 Completed

Good morning everyone,

Can you believe another three weeks have passed since the last SAL update? I can’t. It’s already officially Autumn in the northern hemisphere and the apples and berries are falling from the trees. I love the autumn when the colours outside change from every shade of green to rusty reds, orange and yellow. I’ve been looking at my SAL project and it’s full of the colours we are soon to have in the garden.

I’ve now completed block 20. It’s got a sort of twirly thing going on and, as usual, it’s nothing like the designer intended. The original chart is by Whispered by the Wind. Claire is doing the same design as me but in a different colourway.

Block 20

Here it is with the other 19 blocks. This is the last time you’ll see the bottom row until the project is finished because I need to scroll the fabric around the frame and turn to stitch the final row.

Here’s block 21.

Now that the frame has been turned, the other row has disappeared off the top of the photo.

Only four blocks to go now 🙂

  1. How beautifully apt that you’ll be finishing it in the autumn… The end is in sight at last. Claire won’t divulge what you’re going to work on next, so I suppose I must just be patient…. sigh.

  2. My favourite season too Avis. I have loved these colours since you started the SAL. katechiconi is spot on, the perfect time to complete the project. Well it will slip into winter just a tiny bit but autumn will still be in the memory. 😉

  3. Only 4 more to go well done it’s going to look fantastic when it’s finished

  4. What a difference those two blocks make. It looks so much closer to being finished now 🙂

  5. Not my favorite season, but I like the colours 🙂 Aren´t time flying by a little bit too fast right now????? 🙂

    Ooh you’re nearly there! It looks brilliant so far.

  7. Great blocks, i love yhe movement in 20

  8. Your quilt piece is looking so amazing! It really looks fallish, too. Fall doesn’t officially arrive until next week here, but I can already see the leaves starting to change and the temps did take a dive last week. This week we will get back into the 80’s. Looking forward to seeing the last row of blocks on your quilt 🙂

  9. Very nice and not much further to go. Your colors are very lovely together.
