Sophie’s Sampler Update … and the Tomato Joke
If only to myself, I had declared this weekend my time to catch up with my Old MacDonald’s Mystery Sampler (#OMMS) quilt blocks … which led me to think about the tomato joke and remind myself all weekend long to “ketchup!” (As you all know, I AM easily amused.)
If you don’t know what I’m talking about, here’s a clip of Uma Thurman’s character telling the joke in Pulp Fiction:
I had fallen quite far behind on the blocks for my Old MacDonald’s Mystery Sampler … but, after making these 27 blocks, I am now current–a good place to me when it’s your quilt-along … and it’s almost time to make blocks, create a pattern and send out the sneak peek for NEXT month …
As you can see, I used my “mountain” colorway as background for 1 of the butterfly blocks and a few of the leaf blocks. When you live in an area where mountains have color names like Sandia (watermelon) and Sangré de Christo (blood of Christ) … red is a natural choice. I plan to combine it with brown for those elements inspired by “mountains.”
AAWWW It’s been forever since I’ve watched “Pulp Fiction”!!! Oh you gave me a good chuckle with that one!!! Thanks!
and your OMDMS quilt blocks are coming along famously!!!
