FMQ Challenge/Sept 2015

Hello again! This year is just flying by here...I find it going way too fast.  We are at the end of Sept. already, and posting this months pillow challenge.  This time around, our professional is Terri Lucas.
She does fantastic things with her kaleidoscope effects of fabric!!

Now, before showing you my pillow....Explaining is  Well, you know how sometimes, we think we know what we are doing????  Lol....that was one of those times for me.
I went ahead and made my pillow, quilting my feather freehand...then went back to check out the page!!!!!  You know the rest...don't you!   Wrong thing to do!!!!  Too funny though...really, get in a hurry, then spend more time re doing.

So, here is my first pillow...the mistake.
Right....wrong!!!  lol
Now, the right pillow....
See...we were suppose to trace this little feather because of the kalidescope effect. But, in all one doesn't show anyway. I just filled the back ground with a fun filler. 
This was the last option possible for this month; as all the other options required software that I don't have. This one went back to the 2012 challenge.

So, there you go folks....another month finished up! Please take a look at the linky page to see some great pieces.

Should have been

Well, I planned on this for yesterday, but just didn't get to it.  Right now I am at this point with things....
I finished hand quilting this Dresden Plate for a customer:
It is a large queen...I am now hand quilting this customer quilt:
Double bed size....I am in one row of blocks.  I have the photo quilt finished and bound, but will wait for permission to show it.  I am working on the piece for the Halloween blog hop ..starting Oct. 16, my day! There will be giveaways......I am finishing up my FMQ Challenge pillow, or trying anyway.

A group of us got together on Tuesday to sew and chat!!!!  i started my do- nut pics yet.
I think that is it for right now, folks.  Lots going on all the time, just can't show you all of it yet.

I received a couple of recent wins in the mail, which I am thankful for.  Thanks going out to Quilters 
Way and Intrepid Threads. A nice little quilt kit and fat quarters from a new fabric line!!! Love them both!!!!

WIP Wednesday

Wow!!!  I haven't postd since the end of August...ages, eh.  I am linking up to Monika over at and Lee at...

Gardening is done, except for my potatoes....a couple of weeks probably will see those in too.
my Works in Progress are:  This one is In the frames being hand quilted...just past the Center.
I really like the black and white...customer quilt.  I finished this one that I showed you in my last post.
I am working on a gift for a friend, which I can't show for a couple of weeks. But I will!
I am also working on an Anniversary quilt...I think I mentioned it before. A photo memory for their first wedding anniversary.  But I won't be showing this, as it is so personal, and don't have permission yet.
It is throw size with lovely 8x11 coloured photos. I am just about ready to machine quilt it.

I have two more customer quilts to be hand quilted, and another one coming soon. I have two of my own from last year to quilt, and two patch work quilts from way back to be quilted.  One of these days!!!!!

I have joined the 100 club at our local quilt shop again this year. We are making a disappearing nine patch this time. This is done on a monthly basis...always interesting. This is it here....
We are using the Whitewashed Cottage line for this quilt.  Well, that's it for me this time...enjoy your week folks!
