Happy Friday to you!  I finally put all my Patriotic decorations away, but I'm not quite ready to get all my fall ones out yet.  I've mentioned that once a month I attend a quilting club held at a store; I just joined in February and so glad I did.  We come away with a pattern for a block each month and a separate special project-maybe a table runner, apron etc etc.  By the December meeting our quilt top will be together-yeah!  These are 7 out of 8 blocks that will be the center with sashing, another pinwheel border and a wider border.  What I love about this club is that the teacher/owner of the store shows us the block, gives special hints and has very detailed instructions-which I really appreciate.  I will say I've redone a couple of blocks because I didn't like the color combo.  I'm not into really scrappy quilts and love the civil war colors on this.  It's been fun to see the blocks all the other ladies have made-some are floral, some oriental, some scrappy and lots of color variations.  By the time December rolls around, I will have finished my red & white wall hanging from Sisters, have a good portion of my "Sea" quilt done if not finished and be ready to quilt this.  I have several Christmas projects I'll be working on as well.  It sounds early to think about it, but trust me when I say it will be here before you know it.
I hope you have a great day and weekend!


  1. I would love to see the Sea quilt. I so admire your talent and the beautiful quilts you and other ladies create. Sewing, quilting is not my thing...We all have our own talents. I will just appreciate yours. Have a lovely weekend. xo

  2. Wow, I can't wait to see those blocks all put together with the sashing and borders. I'd love to participate in a sew-along like that.

  3. So nice to have something in our lives that we enjoy just for the sheer enjoyment. It appears you really enjoy your quilting and must feel very accomplished when you finish one. Happy quilting!
