Here is my mini Stems quilt for our next AYOS project!
I caved in and used my October Skies fabric that I had been
hoarding. I can't wait to have it quilted.
Now, I want to make a large Stems quilt.
I think these can be addicting!
So, let me pick our winners for the AYOS Harvey Parade.
Carrie is giving two special surprise-prizes,
one for each of our blogs...
the first randomly chosen winner is:
Pam... at Stitching Between the Lines blog from my parade.
Judith is the winner from Sherri's parade!
I also have a charm pack and a Schnibbles pattern to give one person from each blog...
Linda and Jackie are the winners that will receive the charm pack/pattern combo.
Thank you all for taking on the Harvey project! It was a big quilt and I love
what you all did with the pattern. I love the mini versions and the conversions
that were made... you guys are so creative!
Congratulations to the winners!
as for me...
I had a very nice and relaxing weekend!
It was the first one in a month or more!
I got to stay in my pj's most of the day on Saturday...
and even better... it rained!
I worked on miscellaneous projects that were laying around
in my sewing room and I even got out some binding that needed to be done.
I had the quilts quilted in the summer... but it was just too hot to even think
about binding them!
I got caught up on my Bees Knees Quilting Group projects.
I had two that have been needing my attention.
This one is for Shari...
her theme was a masculine Autumn Leaves block.
and this one is for Calli...
her theme was a free style, anything outdoors and camping
kind of feel, so I made up this...
Also, November is my month for our group so I cut out
and kitted up blocks for everyone in my group.
I even made two of my own for my quilt to get a head start.
It's a free pattern from Little Miss Shabby
promoting her Playful Petals book.
*which I love!
I had decided to join in with the Night Sky quilt along that
was starting up. So I grabbed my stack of
American Jane fabrics and started to cut into them.
There are 7 rows that will be done in 7 weeks.
It should be fun.
This morning I started sewing row #1.
I like the way they are turning out. I am keeping my fingers crossed though...
it is a busy/scrappy pattern and American Jane fabrics are the same...
so we'll see how it turns out!
I even managed to make a Bunny Hill ornament along with a friend on
Thursday evening. They were a lot of fun to make!
But, can you believe it.... I didn't play any Christmas music!
That is just wrong.
