Fall Pumpkins

My One Monthly Goal for October is to quilt these pumpkins that I sewed in August. I purchased some variegated thread so I hope it works well for the quilting.

I'm looking forward to using these on my Thanksgiving table.

Looking forward to a Christmas Quilt

Finished these fast flying geese the first day for The Round About Quilt Along at Happy Quilting Melissa!

September Monthly Goal Finished

My goal for September was to quilt this quilt. It is done. Still need to hand sew the binding to the other side, but that will be accomplished in the evenings. I decided against struggling with my machine and outline quilt all of the dashes and boxes.
 Instead, I just quilted straight lines across and up and down. It worked out fine and it was done much sooner. That way, I can move onto another goal.

Springtime Quilt

I thought I would add this finished quilt to the Blogger's Quilt Festival this year. I am calling this my Springtime quilt because the colors reminded me of Spring flowers, which I love. I enjoyed sewing it and gave it to my Mom. 

My sweet cat, Lucky, thought it was pretty comfy,too.

This is a better close up of the piecing. I pieced the label and used this cute yellow fabric for the backing. It's hard to see, but it had cute birds and flowers on it. I quilted it on my Brother machine, 1/4 inch on either side of the blocks.

I think my Mom likes it and uses it on her couch. Linking this completed quilt up to 2017 Fall Blogger's Quilt Festival
