Hey everyone, here we are again for our monthly show 'n tell. It seems to be getting harder and harder to get these projects finished on time, but we are plugging along. The monthly one from the “101 Fabulous Small Quilts” book didn’t get finished this month, so there will be two to show next month.
We are definitely working on holiday themes. September was my month to choose the projects and I’m always drawn to fall and winter patterns, so I chose these…
First up is a freebie that Cheri offered last October on her blog. It’s called “Pumpkin Seeds”.
Sandy made hers like the pattern.
And I added a little wool pumpkin in the center.
The next project is one that didn’t get finished in August, so we carried it over to this month. Another quilt designed by Cheri called, “Acorns”.
Sandy made this one. She only made 4 blocks of acorns because she read the instructions wrong. (Hehe). I think it turned out wonderful though.
Here’s mine….It’s pretty long with the 5 blocks. I did a scrappy inner border so it’s pretty “busy”.
For our stitchery project, I chose “Snowflake Folk” by Country Stitches.
Sandy made hers into a pillow. And she told us she even made her own piping! LOL
I framed mine.
And then, for the wool project, I chose “Tags of Christmas” by Plays with Wool Designs.
Again, Sandy turned hers in to a pillow…
And I framed mine.
It’s really been fun seeing the difference in how we each interpret the same pattern.
I had some extra time on my hands and worked on a little quilt kit that I got in Portland last month, at “Quilt, Knit, Stitch”.
I first saw this quilt on Pinterest and loved it. When I saw it in the My Red Door booth, I knew I had to have it. It’s called “Midnight Stars”. I still love it!
When I took the picture on the floor it actually looked like a full size quilt,
so I figured I should show you where I put it so you can get a better size reference.
It has oranges and reds in it so I think I’ll be able to decorated with it for Christmas too.
I’ve finished my fall decorating, so will show you that next time.
Thanks for stopping by.
