Aunt Maggie and some mats

Way back when, like in the Spring, when I was blogging, I was showing you pictures of blocks that Sandy No Blog and I were doing as a challenge.  The pattern is Aunt Maggie's Patchwork Quilt by Lori Smith of "From my Heart to your Hands".  

When I plugged my sewing machine in after the long hiatus, Sandy and I decided to power sew and get 'er finished.   We both used fabrics that were in our stash.  It sure feels good to do that.

Here is Sandy's.


This one is mine.   


We started our next challenge around the same time as when we were putting the quilt together.   We are making the "By thy Hand" little quilts by Buttermilk Basin.  

Sandy changed the design of the wool section to add wheat.   


I chose to do mine just like the pattern.   


This is the August mat and I have mine sitting on my library table with a little candle on it.  


I never heard back from Peggy about her win last week, and she was a "no reply" commenter, so I have no way to contact her.  Therefore, I've chosen another winner.    This time it's Hannah F who posted on Sept 7 at 11:24 am.     Hannah, email me your address and I'll send you your goodies.  

Wow, this was a short post for me!  

Have a great week and I'll talk to ya soon.

Hugs, Anne

Great versions, both of you! That must have been one heck of a power sewing session! Wish our weather would cool down so it felt more like fall coming ;>) I so want to get my fall decorations out!
