I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and a great start to the
I went on a little vacation trip down to Southern California... once again!
I celebrated an early Thanksgiving with my family down there.
But came back home just in time to get things ready for company and
lots and lots of cooking!
I even slipped in a day of Christmas decorating before I had to get myself back on
my work schedule!
I am sure you are all aware that Carrie is moving and you can read a little bit more on
her blog post today. She also has a sale going on in her online store that you might want
to check out. Since she is full of surprises...
I am anxious to here more from her and her new adventures in the coming weeks.
For our next months project...
it's one that I actually asked Sherri if we could make it... it is one of her patterns that
I am dying to make!
It's her mini Shine quilt!
I am in love with her larger version...
And this is my Shine that I got to make for the FQS as a kit sample.
Here is my version of the mini Shine quilt...
Sherri has a special surprise for those of you who participated in this month's
AYOS and a Little Bit More... so hop on over to her blog and find
out more... and to see the other half of our Stems parade!
Here is a photo of my Stems mini.
I forgot to take a picture so I asked my hubby to
take a picture and send it to me... so here it is!
I used my October Skies fabric that I have been hoarding
since I was only using a little bit to make this sweet little pattern.
I enjoy making Fig Tree patterns... and this one was just as fun as I
thought it would be.
Now I just need to make the larger version of this pattern!!!
So let's see what everyone else did!
Mary made a very fun version of Stems here.
Here flower stems are so pretty and her border fabric is perfect
to pull it all together nicely!
Nancy went with shades of grey and is able to use it as part of her
holiday decoration on this vintage radio!
Patty at A Stitch In Time made a super cute Stems here and did straight line
quilting on it!
Look what Polly from Aunt Polly's Porch made! She had this done and posted by November 7th!
Polly made her fun Stems mini into a table runner... notice the stems direction?
Stitchin with Peg made a beautiful Stems mini here in
Minick and Simpson red white and blue. I love the way
she used the red to frame the quilt and used it again to bind with.
Sue at Just Sew Sue blog made a bright and happy Stems
quilt here! The pink works great to accent the stems doesn't it?
Susan made a beautiful version of Stems using soft fall colors.
I like the outside border choice on hers too.
Michelle made a beautiful Stems quilt here!
She has a perfect spot for it on top of her treadle sewing machine!
Vickie created a gorgeous version of Stems mini quilt
here... I love how she did this!
I hope you enjoyed the parade this month!
And I hope you join us again next month in making our next project!!!
Don't forget to comment... and go to Sherri's parade... and go
visit Carrie (free block pattern on her post)
and... well, have a great evening!
