Fall Quilt show

Fun with Friends. Our annual photo at the Pacific International quilt show.

 This is some of the fabric I bought. Making another baby quilt, and also participating in the Mystery Quilt by Bonnie Hunter.

Here are a few pictures of the quilts at the show. I love the quilting on these beautiful quilts. 

 And here is another of the Shabby Fabrics Summertime Block of the month I finished! Only 3 more to go!

One done….

 This baby quilt is done!
Another one started! Although, this one is for one of my great nephews who is almost one year old :)

September is Sew month!

 This month I have been trying hard to finish some projects. I took inspiration from Janice Minyard's blog and finished our block of the month. I am trying to decide on sashing and border colors.
I made this little table topper and four placemats for a Christmas gift. Now on to the baby quilts that need to be made!

 I am working on another baby quilt. We have had (or will have had) 3 new babies born in our family this year. I am two behind!
I am glad to have this quilt finished, although I may add a few more buttons to the small flowers. This was a "half-square" challenge quilt from our Material Girls quilting group. My challenge was all of the paper piecing involved, and always….the quilting.

This and That...

 This is always my favorite part of quilting…the binding, because then it is almost finished!
 These are a few items I made for our Common Threads Boutique. 
I still need to finish the placemats, but decided to post anyway. :)

Pencil case

I got tired of digging for pencils and pens in my desk at work, so thought I'd make a pencil case. This pattern is from craftpassion.com. It was pretty difficult to make but I like the way it turned out :)

Keep on movin'….

 Just a sneak peak at my Material Girl's Challenge quilt. I love the colors! It is very "fall-looking".  I may have to hire someone to quilt it to get it done by the deadline!
I am finally decorating with some of my quilts. One of the extra bedrooms was perfect for a day bed and my antique sewing machine. I am still waiting for my husband to help me hang my quilt rack so I can hang more quilts-he's not so excited about that!
