Design Wall Monday & Finished Projects

I'm still working on the project called "Things That Grin in the Night" from Kim Diehl's book Simple Seasons. The little pumpkin for Mom's door for later in Octobler just needs the teeth embroidered, to be quilted, and the buttons sewed on.

I finished these 2 quilts: Blue Lagoon and Take 5.

Deign Wall Monday & Finished Projects

I started working on a project called "Things That Grin in the Night" from Kim Diehl's book Simple Seasons. I have the bottom of the fence unit sewn together, and everything else cut out, but that's about it.

I'm also making a little pumpkin for Mom's door for later in October. For more design walls see Judy's blog.

I finished Mom's Autumn Leaves door hanging. We'll take it to her next weekend. I also finished all 12 of my sister's placemats.

Design Wall Monday - Adding Binding

I'm working on this Autumn Leaves wall hanging for Mom for her door for October.

I picked up the next three projects from my long arm quilter, so now I need to add the binding. Actually, I have already added the binding to 2 of the 12 placemats. The Blue Lagoon quilt and the Take 5 quilt are Christmas gifts! Shhh! Don't Tell!

Design Wall Monday - Happy Labor Day!

I finished the Black-Eyed Susans wall/door hanging that I was working on for my mom. We took it to her this weekend. She was delighted to get it. My husband is working today, (yes, on Labor Day) so we had to return home yesterday.

I put the side borders on this "We are WILD about learning!" for my sister's first grade classroom. I need to quilt it and add the borders.

Design Wall Monday

From those of you who check on my blog regularly, here are all my Jelly Roll Blocks. I don't always get written comments, but from those of you that I see at various quilt gatherings, I know that there are some lurkers out there.

I showed some of you the Black-Eyed Susans that I was working on at the Party on the Porch. I just have the flowers laying on the background. I just need to sew them on and quilt it! I'll be taking this wall/door hanging to Mom this next weekend.

Party on the Porch

Sweet Home Quilt Company ("bad" Melisa) is celebrating the 5th birthday of the shop last night and today. Last night the party started on the porch at 7 p.m. with food, games, prizes, and lots of fun! At about 8 p.m. the doors of the shop opened for lots of fantastic buys!! The good buys continue today with 10% off for buying 1-5 yards and up to 50% off if you buy 25+ yards!!

There was a little discussion in the parking lot as to whether Carol and I or Sarah got there first, but it really didn't matter.

Melisa was so funny. She'd open the door, put out something like cookies, then close and lock the door. Then, she'd come back, put out the bucket of water, and close and lock the door again.

Do you see that bundle of fabric on the right side of the food table? That is a prize!! Someone who arrived late came into this room and saw me sitting on the floor filling out all these tickets. She said, "What are you doing?" I said, "If you got here early enough, and if you had enough junk in your purse, then you got all these tickets to fill out towards winning a prize." Now, let's see if I win!! The drawing is tonight!
