F is for farty Fort and Feather: ABC BOM week 7

Wow the weather here has been AWESOME this weekend. As a result, I had absolutely no desire to quilt, and instead spent most of the weekend in the garden. The loquat tree is covered in fruit, so Princess and I spend a good deal of time sitting in the sunshine eating loquats. She informed me they tasted like pineapple lollies. Cute. But perhaps a little off the mark!

I did manage to get a block finished though. Here it is. I really like this one - although I'm not loving that really irritating bit of red thread sitting in the middle of the photo. Although I have to confess, I couldn't be bothered taking another one. Heh. Sorry!

Grrr - cotton lint

For an explanation of the farty reference, you can have a read of this post over at the Stash Books blog. They're a sophisticated bunch over at Stash, I tell you!

What have you been doing?  Anything lovely?  I imagine it's starting to get chillier up in the northern hemisphere. 

Link up with your ABC blocks and show us what you've been doing - and go and show your friends some linky love. 

I hope you had a lovely weekend!

Haha - I suspect farts could be an important part of your defensive arsenal in a fort! Yay for weekends in the sun - summer is coming :-)

Hehe. Great block. Have that fabric too. Still waiting on my book.

your fort is darling! I love that star dotty fabric around it. it's shaping up nicely, this abc quilt of yours.

hmm, what are loquats? like kumquats? either way, sitting under the tree eating them with princess sounds heavenly.

What? You didn't change the picture to represent F is for Fart? Disappointing... Perhaps you can do the back as a rude version...
