I actually finished a project this week! Yay!!! It is a little wool Pumpkin Candle Mat from a pattern published by Primitive Gatherings:
And I took this Christmas quilt to the long arm quilter last week! Can you believe that? I hope to have this pretty plaid quilt on my bed by the holidays!
It came from a book called Mad about Plaid by Teri Christopherson.
Another almost completed project is the Carol Doak Scrap Scramble:
I want to add some borders – a small red inner border and then a piano key outer border made up of all the fabrics used in this scrappy paper pieced project. I don’t have enough of the red Aunt Grace 1930’s reproduction fabric for the inner border, so I’m stuck until I find that.
While I’m at the keyboard (computer keyboard, not piano keyboard) I may as well update you with my blocks of the months and weeks.
The Austen Family Album block of the week from Barbara Brackman’s blog is up to week 23 so I have three I haven’t shared yet. Here is week 21, called West Wind:
And finally, block 23 is Old Maid’s Puzzle. If you look at the layout of this block on the blog and on the Flickr group web site there were several different interpretations of this block. You can see that I took it in a whole different direction than everyone else!
Threads of Memory block of the month. This is block 8 called Jacksonville Star:
Last but not least is Le Jardin block of the month. This is block 5 – this block was one of the reasons I signed up for this block of the month!
Eventually I will embroider a red clothes line across the top, but it continues on into the next block with little birds holding the line. How cute is that!?!
I’ve mention this before, but next week is the Trinity Valley Quilters’ Guild show (September 19th and 20th) at the Amon Carter Exhibit Hall in the Will Rogers Complex in Fort Worth, Texas. Y’all need to come! I’ll see you there!
