Well, over the past couple of months since my last post I have finished several quilting projects. So thought I'd squeeze in a few minutes on this wonderful Sunday afternoon and share them with you.
Firstly, I used the scraps from the CWR quilt and made three small quilts for our night stands and my dresser.
My next finish is the first of six Christmas quilts that I am making for each of the beds in our house. I hope to finish three this year and three next year. I call this one "Joys of Christmas". As you can see, it is a sampler, many of which were in the Farmer's Wife book. I converted them to 8 inch blocks.
I won the September blocks in our guild's Block Exchange. I got on the ball and pieced it into a top and got it all quilted in less than a months time. It went quickly as there were 22 blocks and I only had to make two more to have a 4 x 6 setting. I call it "Sparkling Friendship Stars".
It is cotton harvest time here in Texas, and though we don't farm, there are several big fields near our ranch. This is the first year in several that the cotton farmers have made a crop and we are so happy for them - plus we quilter's can appreciate 100% Cotton! Thus, I couldn't resist a photo shoot in the cotton fields!
Hope each of you are enjoying this cooler season as we are in Texas!
