A few October quilts

I love this Celtic quilt Holle made for her daughter. The borders were done with stencils. I learned an important lesson, air erase marks do not like rain lol. The marks were disappearing in seconds. I could only mark about 5''s at a time. I finally decided to try again the next day with better weather. What a difference! I could mark 1/2 a border at a time with no worries. (As usual, click on photo to enlarge)

And the back...

I've quilted this quilt pattern for Lynn a number of times but never in a flannel. And it's a Shabby Chic to boot. I love it!!!

This last quilt was quilted for my dear friend Carrie. When I called her to tell her it was finished she said "Oh how fun, I totally forgot about it". Ack, how long have I had this one, lol? Quick check of the paperwork made me feel better lol. Not only was Carrie excited to come get her quilt but she agreed to be my dead bride in the haunted house this year. I'm lucky to have such a great friend. Not may people would say "Do what ever you want to my quilt, when ever you have time..... and yes I will be your dead bride".

A few August quilts

A quick picture of Lynn's latest quilt for the Quilts for Kids auction. I love this quilt and hope it brings in a high bid for the kids. I really admire Lynn's dedication to this organization.

It was fun to quilt and makes me want to make a bright cheerful quilt of my own. Hmmmm maybe I ought to just finish one of the many I've already started lol. Surely there's a bright happy one in the mix. (I just noticed the arched lettering looks crooked in the picture. It's just the way it's hanging. Darn, wish it was still here to get a better picture)

I really like this customers quilt. Isn't it pretty? The very last corner quilted was the bottom right....Ughhh a turned block. (It's actually less noticeable in person, but I still can't believe none of us caught it. Even after 10 minutes of looking her friend still couldn't find it. YES!) The customer decided to leave it as is. She said "No need to flip it, it's OK to not be perfect". Great attitude to have in life!

Oops I said a here are two more august quilts ....or is a few just 3?

(Click on picture to enlarge) I love the simple borders on this one.

It's hard to see but this one has concentric circles on the circle fabric. I love the whimsy in this quilt. She's one of Lynn's good friends and I can't help but wonder if Lynn suggested the polka dot fabric. It's a very "Lynn" thing to do lol.
