4th Quarter Finishes



I got one little quilt done this quarter
Baby Turtle Quilt
I'm pleased with how it turned out and it will be on it's
 way to my sister as soon as I finish quilts for her girls.  
Baby steps--hopefully starting in January I'll get to more finishes.
It's finally getting colder.

My big list is HERE

I have a long list as always!  However, I was looking at an old list and I got more than half of that list completed doing this, so I think it helps!  It certainly helps to write it down and see what I really have completed.  Then the stack doesn't look quite so overwhelming--I really have finished a few things!  Most of these are in flimsy form--though a few are partially pieced.  It's quilting time this quarter.

I know I haven't posted in a very long time, but my son Mowg (11 years old) made an Overwatch Quilt--start to finish.  He came up with the design, enlarged it, appliqued it, quilted it and bound it.  I coached a little, but mostly stood by at my cutting table as moral support.   He's inspired me and I wanted to share it here because I'm so pleased!  It's exciting when some of the headache of sharing what you love bears fruit like this.  Thank you Angela Waters and your Midnight Quilt Show for inspiring him to quilt it himself!  His sisters made sure he has his quilting juice (water with ice) for the process.

Happy Autumn!


We've been

Watching Kokanee Spawn




And have adopted a little gurnsey.  Isn't she adorable?!


Quilting has been on hold for quite a bit, (it's food processing season you know) 
 but that will be changing!

Elm Street Quilts Repeat QAL


I have been so busy lately I didn't think I'd finish the Repeat QAL, but I DID!

Elm Street Quilts

Here's my "Quilt" quilt.

My requirement for this quilt for myself was that it be made with fabric that I love.
I have Droplet from Doe by Carolyn Friedlander and Lotta Jansdotter's Tipu Bird

I used the traditional piecing pattern (which was great) from Patty at Elm Street Quilts
I added the pinwheel block.


It turned out pretty well--a little wonky in places 
(I think next time I'll use her paper pieced patterns)

I was a little more bold on the back with this fun Lizzy House print.


I'm most excited because this is my very first machine quilted quilt.
It's not perfect, but I didn't ruin the quilt!  That's been my biggest fear.
This pic shows the quilting



I'm doing a happy dance!  I have enough confidence I may even quilt
a slightly larger quilt in the near future.  Look out here come some finishes!!

I didn't get any process pictures because I couldn't find my camera
--I don't know how it always gets away from me, but it does.

I'm so pleased with how this turned out!

Thanks so much Patty for doing this quilt along!  I'm going to make the whole quilt sometime.

I'm going to join in (a little late!) in this quilt along.  It's words!  I'm excited:



Elm Street Quilts
I'm off to pull fabric, because of course I should be cleaning!
