October sewing with Sandy


Can you believe we are into month 10 of our little projects?   Seems like just yesterday that we started working on all these fun little goodies.   

A big thanks to all of you who have commented how much you enjoy seeing what we’re working on.  We are having a great time making them, so we’re glad you are with us on this journey.  

First up is a leftover project from last month.    It’s the “Tumbling Leaves” quilt from the book 101 Fabulous Small Quilts.

First up is Sandy’s version. 


And mine.  We both used wool for the applique pieces.  


Sandy chose the October projects.    The one she chose for us to do out of the 101 Fabulous Small Quilts was “Shoofly Potpie”. 

Sandy made hers very similar to the one in the book.


I made mine a bit less scrappy.  


Next, she chose this cute pillow pattern called “Harvest Pillow” by Red Button Quilt Co.





We have enjoyed doing the Buttermilk Basin little patchwork pillows thru the year.  This is the one for November.





And last up is a stitchery project.   Not sure what the pattern is called.  We just called it the Christmas stitchery.   I think she found it on the internet.  

Sandy’s ended up in a 9” x 12” frame. 


I reduced mine to fit a 4” x 6” frame.


Here they are side by side for comparison.  


Again, it’s so fun to see how each of us changes up a pattern to fit our own style, or the style of whoever might be receiving one of these projects as a gift.  

I’m not sure what’s going to happen with November and December show and tell because we usually reveal our goodies at our Woolies group.   November and December meetings might get cancelled because of the holidays.   Sandy might just have to take pictures and send them to me for showing.    We’ll work it out!

Happy Halloween to those of you who celebrate it.   I always love seeing the little ones who aren’t really sure what all the fuss is about.  

Hugs, Anne

So much fun and the show was over too soon! Love the gingham check you used in Tumbling Leaves. Your Harvest pillows are both so cute. Love that stripe! I love that you both interpret patterns & finishes similarly but differently at the same time. Sometimes its difficult to step out & bring ones own style to a much loved design...something I try to encourage my fellow quilters to do. Even though I'm guilty too!

You two are amazing!

Still lovin' it all. You girls are so talented and the self discipline to "stick to it" is beyond admirable! I must find the resin? pumpkins with the star on it with...might you tell where you got that? Thanks much for sharing it all and HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

The leaves, pumpkins and sunflower piece is my favorite of this month's goodies. I think I should order that book as I like the things you two have made from the designs.
It is interesting to see how you each interpret the same design. Do you share what you plan to do with the design ahead of time or surprise each other at the end?
