Weekly update: a finish and playing with scraps
It's apple season! The produce/flower market just up the road from us gets several dozen varieties of apples from Twin Maples Orchard in southwestern Michigan.
I get three or four of each kind and put a slip of paper with the variety in each bag -- but usually the slips, bags, and apples get separated.

Play Your Song is finished! I used a six-piece panel and Bonnie Hunter's Random Ohio Stars design. 60 x 72, 6-1/4 yards used. It will be donated to the Lake County Symphony Orchestra for their fall gala.
I thought I had kept count of the small stars but there were two left over.
I've made many scrap slab blocks that turn out 9-1/2" because I use that size ruler to trim them. I've set them with wide strips (here and here). I saved a Pinterest photo with another setting idea. The slabs are 6-1/2" x 9-1/2" and the gray strips are 2" x 9-1/2. I cut down a half dozen square slab blocks and found I had enough slabs-in-process to make a dozen more. [In the photo: the two blocks at the top show the horizontal/vertical setting. The finished blocks are at the left, the cut strips in the center, the 6-1/2" x 9-1/2" slabs at the right.]
I won't have much sewing time this week. I leave tomorrow at noon for Iowa. Destination: Des Moines and the P.E.O. Sesquicentennial Convention . Home on Sunday afternoon!
