September show and tell - Part 2

I hope some of you were able to join us on Instagram.  There are lots of inspiring quilts, crafts and decorating.  You might get some good ideas.

On to Part 2.  

These are all mine.   Remember, this is 2 months worth. (wink)

This quilt by Geoff's Mom called "In the Meadow" is one that I did as a Block of the Month from my local quilt shop.    It was a UFO, so I got it all finished up this year and off to the quilter.   Now it's a ready for Christmas decorating.  

Another quilt by Quilts by Cheri. called "Pumpkin Patch" 

This was a kit that I got a couple of years ago called "Country 9 Patch" 

I made this scarecrow from a pattern called "Cooper"
by Homespun from the Heart.   It was an e-pattern that I found on etsy. 

I really love these wall hangings for outside on my entryway.  
This one is called "Trick or Treat" from Cottage Creek Quilts

A quick and easy wool project from My Red Door Designs
called " Harvest Time"

This next little one is called "Autumn Fest" by Chestnut Junction.
(Sandy made me the little scarecrow on the masher - cute, huh?)

I also made "Hocus the Halloween Cat" by Briar Root Primitives.  
I thought my kitty (Jack) might become friends with Hocus, but no such luck!  

And my Sept Indygo Junction block.    Still have 2 left to do.  

I'm almost finished with a year of these darling little hanging quilts 
from Buttermilk Basin called "Sew Simple BOM".  
This is October.  

and November

This is another e-pattern that I found on Etsy.   
I can't find the pattern right now to give you the name.   
It's a fun way to play with those old mattress springs you're seeing in all the antique stores. 

Another wonderful design by Cheri called "Liberty Baskets"
I don't have much in the way of patriotic quilts, and loved this one when I saw the pattern. 

Last but not least, another pattern from My Red Door Designs
called "Pumpkin Harvest".  I picked up the frame at a craft store.   

Well, that's it.  I'm so glad to be caught up.   
October looks to be a very busy month for me, so I'm not sure how much I'm going to get accomplished but I'm sure the other gals at Woolies will have lots to share this month. 

Happy Fall Y'all.  

Hugs, Anne

September show and tell

I know, I know...I'm late.  This time I have a really good excuse tho.   My computer caught a virus and had to go see the Dr for 3 days.   Then I had to get all the pictures loaded onto the computer and edited.   Since there wasn't much show and tell last month, there are quite a few pictures this time. I think I'm going to break it up into two separate posts.  

Before I begin, I wanted to let those of you who don't know, about a little Fall Decorating Tour I'm participating in on Instagram.    If you want to see some fun pictures that Karen, Sandy, Patty, Tammy and I are sharing, then follow one of us on Instagram and that one will link you to the others.    I'm @cottonsnwool, Karen is @yellowfarmhouse, Sandy is @sfeigner, Patty is @myrty50 and Tammy is @basketnut1.    On Sept 23, we started showing our houses all decorated for fall and will continue every evening until Oct 11th.   Then we'll take a break for a couple of weeks and come back at the end of Oct with some Halloween decorating.    Hope to see you on Instagram.  

Now, on with Part 1 of show and tell.

First up is a pillow that Marilyn made.  She borrowed my Indygo Junction pattern for July and made 2 pillows for her daughter and son in law who live in Boston and love to sail.  

Mari made this quilt top but I don't remember the name of the pattern.  Sorry. 

She also whipped up this goodie from Crabapple Hill Designs.

Jean continues working on her wool Summertime Sampler blocks. 
Looks like these little fishies need some eyes!

The rest are all projects that Sandy finished up.  

This one is called Country Homecoming from the book called Primitive Gatherings 
by Terry Burkhart and Rozan Meacham  
A few years ago I had a quilt-a-long on my blog for anyone who wanted to work on this one.  
It was really fun to see all the different versions.  
Sandy participated but just finished quilting hers.   

This cute little kitty is called "Hocus the Halloween Cat by Briar Root Primitives

These next little pillow bowl fillers are from Cheri of Quilts by Cheri

And this one is a quilt block from Wooden Spool Designs called "Happy Halloween"
There are 12 blocks on the quilt but Sandy wanted to make a little pillow instead. 

This little pillow was a freebie from Buttermilk Basin this summer.

And continuing on with the monthly series from Sarah Spoorer of Indygo Junction, 
here is Sept

and June.   
I think Sandy is now finished with all 12.   

This cute patriotic quilt is called "Crossroads" from the book, Civil War Remembered. 

We can't get enough of the quilts by Cheri of Quilts by Cheri
Cheri just shared this pattern on her Facebook Group. 
It's called "Turkey Tracks".  

This little one is on the same pattern.   

There were so many finished projects that I'm breaking this up into 2 posts.   
See you tomorrow. 

Hugs, Anne
