Good morning folks...on my way to the garden, so a quick post. I finished this one this morning for a lady...Christmas gift for her granddaughter. The second quilt is for her too.
Her other quilt...a throw
No more quilting til next week...our huge community turkey supper is this Saturday...so, I will be on the run after today. There are turkeys to cook, pies and rolls to make, veggies to peel. The whole community pitches in for this...even folks outside the community help out by serving meals, doing dishes, etc.
Have a wonderful weekend.

It seems my posts are getting too far apart lately. I used to post constantly, but lately. I don't know why, but seems I am rarely here. I hope to change that...here is a quilt I finished piecing this past week. It is the Carpentar Star....fabric came from Spruce it up Quilt shop in my province. I don't get there near as often as I would like. This color pallet is not the norm for me, but it is growing on me...lol
I hope to make another soon...very quick pattern. I am also enjoying the end of my garden lately. I have mixed feelings about that...nice to see the end of the work, but will miss the fresh veggies!!! I have been digging potatoes for a few days...still more to dig. And picking ripe tomatoes from the vines too.
They are such a treat! Our Annual community turkey supper is next weekend...ohhhhhhhh, the fun and the work!!!! Have a wonderful weekend all...

Well, I got together with six lady friends today for a sewing day!!!! Two others stopped by at lunch to visit and see what was going on. We always have a wonderful time...catch up on summer news, and have a little show and tell.
I took these for show and tell...
And this was my project to finish up today...I had made the blocks back in May...finished the top today.
It is called "Slice-a-Block" by Rob Appell from Missouri Star Co book. You can see a bit of the border at the top of the pic...black border. This measures roughly 70x80 inches.
The coloured blocks are a swirled marble like I used in my snow geese...here.
Good day all around!!!! Have a nice week everyone!!!!!

Hello everyone....has been a dull day here today, and a touch cooler. I guess Fall is in the air!!
Well, besides gardening, I have been busy quilting and sewing. This one is being hand quilted, but turned it for the last time, soon be finished.
I got the binding on this one...
And...this is on my design wall...
Birch Trees. I have done this one before, and just had an urge for another! And on Friday, I pick up the first set of blocks of our 100 club quilt....done as a group thing on a monthly basis with our quilt shop.
This is last year's quilt....

Yesterday I took this 4patch off of Lily(Coronet)...ready to be bound. I really like this scrappy quilt, which is a custom order. I had a nice time quilting the flowers and paisley feathers on it...freehand can be lots of fun!!
Close up....very hard to see the quilting on this one.
On to my hand quilting.... I have this one in the frames...love it!! I am hand quilting it for a lady who does fantastic embroidery!
Will show you more...only half quilted yet.
I am also piecing one in my sewing room....more info next time. Have a wonderful day.
