OK, this is it. I hope you all had fun and get all 10 projects made. Remember, if you want to share something that you made from these patterns, you can post it here.....
And you won't want to miss the free project today from Pat Sloan. Personally, I don't know how this woman gets all these things done, but she does. I'm amazed. And just a tad bit jealous that I'm not nearly as productive as she is!
Ah well. We can't all be great.
So, on to today's topic, QUILTS. Now here's something that I could spend a lot of time talking about. But, I'm thinking that maybe it's time I let the quilts do a little of the talking, although I need to share a little bit of information about each one.
This is Fall Frolic, one of my very early patterns. Although it has been out of print for a while, I still get requests for it. And actually, after looking at it again today, I'm thinking it would be a good candidate for a makeover (that would be a makeover as in make-it-over again using new fabrics). Hmmm... something to think about.
This next one is still one of my very favorite quilts. Probably because I love the simple lines of the courthouse steps block. But I don't think I'll be making this one over again. I don't think I've ever been so happy to be finished with a quilt as I was when I finally got this one all together. It is called October Sky and is in my book Full Circle.
And then there is Rusted Moons, which is somewhat of a fall quilt. It has the fall colors and I had fall in mind when I made it, at least.
Ok, now brace yourself, because here goes my shameless plug...
And if you are a fan of panels, these came from a panel I did for the Pumpkins and Spice fabric line. This was the first fabric line that I did a panel for, and although I love all the projects, the panel is getting harder to come by. However, as it is with any quilts done with a panel print, you could always substitute something else in the center of them. Or, you could just purchase a panel from me, since I bought a few bolts of it.
I have a limited quantity, just sitting in my dining room. I'm just sayin'......
And something besides a quilt that you might need for a windy fall day...
Notice that the top one here is made out of felted wool. This hat is in my Tangled Up in Thread book and the next one is in Pumpkins and Spice. Both an be done in either wool or cotton and I can't tell you how many times I've had people want to take the hat right off of my head. Literally!
Ok, so that's enough about me and my quilts. I hope you enjoyed yourself and keep checking back, even after the blog hop is over. Just so you know, though, I do plan on going into hibernation for a few weeks to recoup and to try to get something ready for Quilt Market, so don't be surprised if you come back to visit and I haven't shared anything new! It doesn't mean that I've forgotten. It just means that I'm busy sewing, and writing, and everything else that needs to get done!
Although, I will share the news of the lucky Grand Prize winner on Monday. That means that you have until Friday to get your comments on each one of our blogs. Good luck to everyone, and thanks for hopping along with us!!!
