Cool Weather Coming Here!!

Supposed to be our last day of 100 degree days today.  Then down in the 80's.  Will certainly feel better!
 This is a Barn quilt with embroidered barns.  The embroidery took me one year to embroider!  The pattern is from Primrose Lane.
 
 
 
This is a wool project.  It was so much fun to do!  The pattern is from Primitive Gatherings. 
It comes as a kit.

Happy September!

We made it through the hot summer and now it will start cooling down soon.
 These are embroidered flowers set in log cabin like setting.  Colors go good in my living room!  Pattern is from Red Brolly.
Found this pattern on Cluck Cluck Sew and had to try it! Some little boy at Project Linus should like it!

Project Linus Quilts






These are five quilts that are finished for Project Linus.  Trying to get caught up on kits that I have made up and panels.  The "to-be -quilted" pile just grows!  but Maynard, the quilter is trying to catch up!  But then do we ever get caught up?  LOL

Another Project Linus quilt

I made this one for Project Linus.  Got some of the fabric at an estate sale.  I thought the border fabric was so pretty.  Just a simple rail fence pattern.

Got information on the International Quilt Festival in October in Houston and am getting excited about going.  So much to do for classes and events and just the show itself-----almost overchoice!!!
Did you get your information yet?

Gift Quilt

 
 
This is a quilt that was presented on behalf of  our Life Group to our teacher and his wife. 
 
This is a picture of Donna, can't see Don, he's just out of the picture.  Don and Donna are such lovely people and I was so happy to make a quilt for them.  My hubby, Maynard quilted it. 
 
Don has done such a wonderful job of teaching and while it's hard to see him retire, we know that it is the right time to do this.  Many good wishes go to our friends, Don and Donna!
 
The quilt is a Big and Bold pattern.  Wish I could remember the name of the fabric line, but I can't.  Sorry about that!

America the Beautiful Block of the Month

The July Block of the Month from McCall's 2011 yearly quilt is shown here.  A "bounty" block and a church block.  I didn't get a picture, but there is a flag, too.  This is turning into quite a project, but will be nice when finished!  The door on the church is really not crooked, but is following the slope of the seat of the chair where I placed it for picture.
